The Bulova Corp. plans to move part of its staff from its Woodside location to the 29th floor of the Empire State Building in 2015, a spokeswoman said.
“We want to be where all the energy and excitement is and that makes it easier for us and for our customers to come see us,” Vice President and Creative Director Fae Druiz said.
Bulova, a jewelry company started in 1875 by a Bohemian immigrant in Manhattan, agreed to a 15-year lease for the 29th floor, Druiz said.
She said Bulova was not sure whether all or just a portion of personnel currently based in the 1 Bulova Ave. location would move to Manhattan.
The company is hoping to make the transition in fall 2015, depending on when reconstruction work is completed.
