Dish Network – whose 10 satellites beam Free Speech TV, the Military Network, and countless other channels to boob-tubes around the world – is coming to Hudson Square.
The network signed a six-year lease for the fifth and sixth floors (that’s 28,954 square feet) in 185 Varick Street, at King Street, in an edifice to be dubbed the “Dish Building,” according to CB Richard Ellis, whose Matthew Bergey and Bruce Surry represented the landlord, the Federbush family.
The asking rent for the space was $46 a square foot. Dish will move into the prewar building, which already houses Pitney Bowers and American Express offices, this June. Ira Rovitz, of Grubb & Ellis New York, represented Dish.
