Lloyd’s Moving to MoMA Office Tower in N.Y. City

January 19, 2005

Lloyd’s of London is moving its New York City headquarters to The Museum of Modern Art’s new office tower.

Designed by the internationally acclaimed architect, Yoshio Taniguchi, the boutique office tower has its own entrance for office tenants, and is located within the recently opened office building next to the Museum at 25 West 53rd Street.

Formerly housed at 590 Fifth Avenue, Lloyd’s selected The Museum Office Building because of its Midtown location and prestigious image, according to brokers at CB Richard Ellis.

Wendy Baker, president of Lloyd’s America, commented on the move. “As one of the world’s leading insurers of fine art, it is fitting for Lloyd’s US headquarters to be based in the home of one of the world’s foremost museums of modern art. We are privileged to have our name associated with MoMA, a lovely place for my guests and me to spend a lunch hour,” Baker said.

MoMA occupies the base floors of the building only 15,000 square feet of office space remains available at the 16-story property.
