CB Insights, a tech market intelligence firm, has signed a full-floor, 11-year lease of 43,000 square feet at George Comfort & Sons’ 498 Seventh Ave. The company had subleased 17,000 square feet there since 2016.
“CB Insights has more than doubled team size and tripled revenue since laying foundation at 498 Seventh Ave. in 2016,” said Jonathan Sherry, CB Insights’ COO. “The team at George Comfort & Sons has been a great partner in accommodating our growth, and so we’re excited to expand our global headquarters in their building.”
George Comfort president Peter Duncan called CB Insights’ decision “a validation of our efforts to provide all tenants at our building with the highest level of service.”
Dashrock Group’s Drew Conner represented CB Insights, with Ian Lester of Lester Bleckner and Shaw LLP, as counsel. Matt Coudert and Andy Conrad represented ownership in-house. Blank Rome’s Cory Tarzik provided counsel.
