New York hub for Macmillan Science and Education

Macmillan Science and Education has signed a longterm lease on new premises in New York, bringing together all its separate businesses with a New York presence.

The company has signed a lease for One New York Plaza, the southernmost skyscraper in Manhattan.

When the move takes place, Nature Publishing Group, which publishes Nature and Scientific American magazines, will be part of the same open-plan office as Macmillan Higher Education, Palgrave Macmillan and Macmillan New Ventures. A total of 950 employees are due to move into the premises in May 2015.

Macmillan Science and Education c.e.o. Annette Thomas said: "In our New York Campus we will be creating an inspiring and energizing space with the technology, facilities and layout that will enable our talented teams to collaborate, share ideas, innovate and grow. This new shared home for our New York teams is the next chapter in our evolving story and is a very visible sign of our intent to transform learning and discovery by focusing on innovative ways to support teachers, students and researchers."

Ken Michaels, the company's global c.o.o. said the new building would give the business "space to grow".

The UK businesses are part-way through a move that will unify them within a new King's Cross campus location in London.
