Nothing goes better with accountants than mid-priced fashion. Now EisnerLubin LLP will stride into the home of Jones Apparel Group and LeviStraussCo.
The cautious number crunchers will expand by 50 percent with the move from their current home at 444 Madison Avenue. But with plenty of head-scratching deals being done, along with tax season on the way, they’ll likely need the 19,000 square feet.
“Our client base has grown and their needs are more sophisticated than ever before,” said Robert Simon, the firm’s managing partner. “To accommodate this growth, as well as the increasing globalization of our clients’ businesses … we have expanded the size of our offices and also joined an international alliance of professional services firms.”
Earlier, the Jones clothiers took 385,759 square feet in the building, in one of 2010’s biggest leases. But perhaps the newly flush accountants would prefer to get down with rapper Jay-Z’s fashion line, Rocawear, which is also in the building.
Newmark Knight Frank represented the tenant. The landlord is 1411 Trizechahn-Swig.
