Human Rights First Signs Lease For 17,899 SF At 75 Broad Street; Organization Relocates Downtown From Midtown South

Cushman & Wakefield announced today that Human Rights First, a non-profit, nonpartisan international human rights organization based in New York and Washington D.C., has signed a long-term lease at 75 Broad Street, located between Beaver and William Streets.

Human Rights First will relocate to 17,899 square feet on the entire 31st and 32nd floors at 75 Broad Street, from 333 Seventh Avenue. The organization will relocate from Midtown South, where it has occupied space since 1996 to the 33-story, Downtown office building.

A Cushman & Wakefield team, led by Robert Lowe, Carri Lyon and Kevin Daly represented Human Rights First in the transaction. Cushman & Wakefield’s Frank Cento, exclusive leasing agent at JEMB Realty Corp.’s 75 Broad Street, represented the landlord.

“We thoroughly searched Manhattan for office space that would meet the organization’s needs and 75 Broad Street was the best opportunity and provided the best value for Human Rights First,” said Lowe, Vice Chairman. “The layout of the space will allow the organization to run its business efficiently, while the space itself boasts windows on all four sides and 14 foot ceilings with spectacular views.”

Human Rights First is an independent advocacy and action organization that challenges America to live up to its ideals. For over 30 years, the organization has built bipartisan coalitions and teamed up with frontline activists and lawyers to tackle issues that demand American leadership.
