Talent agency William Morris Endeavor Entertainment—the creature born of April’s Endeavor–William Morris coupling—is hunting for new, combined office space in Manhattan, digs befitting its new image, whatever that may be.
Actually, if Ariel Emanuel is anything like Entourage’s Ari Gold (the character inspired by him) or his brother Rahm, we have some idea: cutthroat, sleek, shiny in a fake, L.A. sort of way.
We’re told the firm’s current offices, at Paramount Group’s 1325 Avenue of the Americas and Rockrose Development’s Carnegie Hill Tower at 152 West 57th Street, are a tad on the fuddy-duddy side.
The fledgling firm has put out a proposals request for between 50,000 and 70,000 square feet in midtown south and midtown, according to sources familiar with the talent agency’s office search.
Newmark Knight Frank broker Brian Goldman, who is representing the firm in its office hunt, wouldn’t comment for this story.
