Bloomsbury is relocating its New York City office. On April 29, the publisher will move into space at 1385 Broadway, leaving its current office in the Flatiron Building (at 23rd Street and Broadway), which is overseen by its distributor, Macmillan.
The move will also consolidate Bloomsbury's New York publishing operations under one roof. Moving to 1938 Broadway along with the adult and children's trade divisions which are currently in the Flatiron Building, will be Bloomsbury Academic and Fairchild Books. The latter divisions are currently housed in a separate Manhattan office. (Bloomsbury bought Fairchild Books last year.)
Richard Charkin, president of Bloomsbury USA, said the growth in the U.S. over the last five years necessitated the move. "Macmillan has been our gracious and generous host [at the Flaitiron building] for more than a decade," he said. "And while we won’t be together in the Flatiron any longer, we are happy to continue our distribution relationship."
Bloomsbury's new office will take up one floor at 1385 Broadway.
