The Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau is relocating its offices to 1601 Market St. in Center City.

The group will be moving from 1700 Market St. where it had been for the last 10 years. It signed a 15-year lease on 12,291 square feet on the second floor of newly developed space at the office building and significantly cut the amount of space it had occupied. At 1700 Market, it leased 17,105 square feet. The organization, which has 50 employees, will move in late December. It was represented by Todd Monahan and Mitch Marcus of JLL.

In its search, the visitors bureau looked at 10 different offices west of City Hall but declined to say where. The new offices on the second floor of 1601 Market will allow it to have highly visible exterior signage and give it a place to showcase Philadelphia when meeting planners, tour operators, journalists and others visit, the group said through a spokeswoman. It will also give it an opportunity to redesign its space. Read more about the relocation on PBJ.com
