Newmark Grubb Knight Frank is pleased to announce that Outbrain has relocated its global headquarters to 39 West 13th Street. The online content discovery platform sought expanded space with a modern, state-of-the-art feel that reflects the company’s leading industry position.
The company converted 10,000 square feet that was marketed as a sublease, signing a direct lease with the landlord for a total of 25,000 square feet of open loft office space. Outbrain previously occupied 6,500 square feet at 116 E. 16th Street.
The new HQ space features an industrial-styled cafe, exposed 16-foot ceilings and an abundance of natural light from high windows on 13th and 14th Streets. Outbrain worked with Thomas Jensen of JIDK on the design, which includes a Sofia Maldonado-commissioned mural, serving as an inspirational backdrop for the workspace.
“The space allows for flexibility and inspires innovation, which is a natural fit given the origins and successes of this company,” said Eric Zemachson, of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, who, with Scott Brown, represented the tenant in the deal. “It’s also a testament to the area, which is hip, young and burgeoning with tech companies and other creative firms.”
