NEW YORK (AP) — Piano maker Steinway & Sons has announced it will move to a new Manhattan location next year.
The move from West 57th Street to West 43rd Street is slated for the end of 2015.
The company says it has signed a 15-year lease for 40,000 square feet (3,700. sq. meters)of space now occupied by the International Center of Photography.
The new location will be designed by architect Annabelle Selldorf.
The first-floor showroom will have floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The company also will occupy the 13th floor of the building. Steinway says it’s the first time in its 161-year history that its corporate operations will be centralized in one location.
The space also will have recital space, rehearsal rooms, a recording studio and state-of-the-art technological resources.
