Orchard Technologies, a newly minted “unicorn”  that aims to simplify the home-selling-and-buying process, had its own odyssey finding a new home for its fast-growing business. The outcome: a welcome, 107,000 square-foot boost for the downtown office market.

The four-year-old firm was working out of a 25,000-square-foot Knotel flex-space until Knotel went bankrupt early this year.

Orchard relocated temporarily to a WeWork location on West 14th Street, but needed much more elbow room for its growing staff.
