The Bethesda-based real estate brokerage and design firm Streetsense is opening an office in Manhattan, its first outside the D.C. area, according to The Washington Business Journal.

The firm’s president, Brian Taff, told the business publication it’s looking to grow internationally and within the tri-state area that includes New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

The firm has two offices in D.C., its Bethesda headquarters next to the Metro station and now a New York office.

State gains more than 14,000 jobs in August

Maryland added 14,200 new jobs in August, according to data released this month by the U.S. Department of Labor. As a result, the state’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.9 percent, compared to the national average of 4.4 percent.

Most of the job gains—9,700—were in the private sector while the others were added in the public sector. The Professional and Business Services Sector gained 5,300 jobs while the construction sector increased by 3,200 jobs to lead the private sector job growth.

Since January 2015, the state has added 127,600 jobs, according to the state’s Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.
