Pinterest Opts for Bryant Park

Silicon Valley company to set up shop next to PMC.

Lois Weiss, a real estate reporter for the New York Post, has the usual mix of intriguing “Between the Bricks” items today. Of special interest to media watchers is blurb #3:

Pinterest will open its first city office at 475 Fifth Ave. in 32,000 square feet covering the entire 4th and 5th floors…

The building now includes hedge funds, but its largest tenant is Penske Media Corporation (PMC), which may have been Pinterest’s previous suitor – or even its newest. The Japanese company Muji has rented the retail space opposite the NYP Library’s “lions.”

PMC signed a deal at the beginning of the year for the second, third, 14th and 16th floors. The building is owned by TIAA-CREF.
