Tiffany to Relocate New York Offices
NEW YORK, Apr 29, 2010 / — Tiffany & Co. is moving its headquarters staff to 200 Fifth Avenue (at 23rd Street), a building formerly known as the International Toy Center.
Currently, Tiffany’s headquarters’ staff is located in three separate locations in midtown Manhattan and the move, expected to occur in spring 2011, will enable Tiffany to consolidate all personnel in one location and generate occupancy savings.
“This is an excellent opportunity to lock in meaningful long-term savings in occupancy costs, and to gain efficiencies from housing everyone in one location. We are also pleased that the renovated 200 Fifth Avenue building, which recently celebrated its centennial, is expected to be designated a “green”.
