Introducing The Yext Building
Located in New York City
Yext announces its new global headquarters at 61 Ninth Avenue in Chelsea, a nine-floor building with high ceilings, private terraces on every floor, and a rooftop park overlooking the Hudson River. As Yext grows around the world, The Yext Building will allow the company to hire hundreds of employees in its home of New York City.
“In an era of too much information, much of it wrong, Yext is pioneering a new search paradigm that brings brand verified answers to your fingertips. Located between Google’s NYC HQ and the Apple Store, The Yext Building will inspire our team each day on our quest to put perfect answers everywhere.”
Located on Ninth Avenue at West 15th Street, The Yext Building is located across the street from Google’s New York headquarters and Chelsea Market, next door to the Apple Store, and above the Starbucks Reserve Roastery. Yext, now a global company with around 1,000 employees, had its offices in Chelsea Market years ago when it was only a 65-person startup.
The iconic building, designed by famed New York-based architect Rafael Viñoly, incorporates native plants on its over 13,600 square feet of outdoor space, bicycle storage and shower facilities, rainwater management for cooling and irrigation, and advanced energy efficiency technology. The open, loft-like layout is designed for collaboration.
Yext will redesign the interior of the building, targeting March 2020 to move all New York City employees to the new space. Over 12 years, Yext’s investment in the building is expected to top $150 million, which includes rent and tens of millions for build-out. The company’s planned creation of 500 new jobs over the next five is supported by up to $6 million in performance-based Excelsior Tax Credits from New York State over ten years.
