Accounting firm EisnerAmper has signed a lease renewal and expansion at 750 Third Avenue, The Commercial Observer has learned.
The eight-year lease solidified the firm’s existing 138,000 square feet across floors 13 through 17 and 21, while adding 12,000 square feet on the 22nd floor.
“They have a dynamic, growing practice,” said Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Vice Chairman Mark Weiss, who represented the tenant with Rob Eisenberg and Robert Emden.
“It’s a good building, near Grand Central and with great functionality – and the landlord has been very reliable,” he added, referring to SL Green (SLG) Realty Corp.
EisnerAmper, which offers accounting, consulting and tax services, is among the largest accounting firms in the nation, with nearly 1,300 employees, including 180 partners.
Last summer, SL Green announced that FTI Consulting, Inc. (a.k.a. The Schonbraun McCann Group) renewed its lease covering 23,230 square feet on the entire 26th and 27th at the building.
Marcum LLP, Endurance Reinsurance, Advance Magazine Publishers and Connolly’s Restaurant are among other tenants in the 34-story, 779-641-square-foot building in the heart of the Grand Central submarket, which, along with 485 Lexington Avenue, makes up what was dubbed Grand Central Square.
Condé Nast, future anchor tenant at One World Trade Center, with at least one million square feet of space, was a former tenant in the building.
Its façade features single-paned tinted glass vision panels with black-colored opaque spandrel panels, with its west-facing side boasting a glazed brick veneer.
SL Green, which owns interests in 77 Manhattan properties totaling 39.3 million square feet, just announced that it is on track to report leasing activity well above what it reported last quarter.
The company’s recent leases included WPP Group USA, Inc.’s 43,294-square-foot renewal at 100 Park Avenue; The Federative Republic of Brazil’s 30,320-square-foot lease at 220 East 42nd Street; Major, Lindsey & Africa LLC’s 21,677 square foot lease at 521 Fifth Avenue; and Chinatrust Commercial Bank, Ltd.’s 20,987-square-foot lease, also at 521 Fifth Avenue.
