Haver Analytics has signed an early renewal and expansion of its lease at Empire State Realty Trust’s One Grand Central Place, bringing its total footprint in the building to 19,073 square feet for the next 10 years, Commercial Observer has learned.

The tenant, an economic and financial database provider,  will continue to occupy its existing 16,402-square-foot offices across the entire 33rd floor and part of the 34th floor of the building between Madison and Vanderbilt Avenues. And, it will add 2,671 square feet on the 34th floor of the property, which has an alternate address of 60 East 42nd Street, to accommodate its growth.

The asking rent in the deal was $72 per square foot, according to a spokeswoman for Savills Studley, which represented Haver Analytics. The brokerage’s Daniel Horowitz, Jeffrey Peck and Gary Kerper negotiated the transaction on behalf of the tenant but declined to provide a comment.  

ESRT was represented in-house by Julie Christiano and Lindsay Godard. The landlord will upgrade Haver Analytics’ office space as a result of the deal.

“Haver Analytics chose to renew and expand at One Grand Central Place due to its central location, with in-building access to Grand Central Terminal, and convenient in-building amenities and services,” Ryan Kass, a senior vice president at ESRT, said via a spokeswoman.

Current tenants at the 55-story building include Gerson Lehrman Group, a platform for professional learning, 3i Debt Management and Allianz Real Estate of America.
