The terms of the deal were not clear. The company will take the entire 40th and 41st floors of the 51-story structure, which is part of the Hudson Yards mega-project at 11th Avenue and West 34th Street.

Spokeswomen for Related and Silver Lake did not respond to a request for comment, nor did a spokesman for Mitsui Fudosan.

Silver Lake, which has more than $39 billion under management, focuses on technology investing. It has three offices in California, and one each in London, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Stephen Winter of Related and Emily Jones of CBRE represented the landlord and John Cannon and Howard Rosen of Lee & Associates brokered the deal for Silver Lake. 

The planned tower at 55 Hudson Yards, which is set to open next year, has leases signed for about 60 percent of the structure, the Post reported.

Then billionaire Steven A. Cohen’s Point72 Asset Management inked a deal for 175,000 square feet, as CO reported last June. Digital trading provider MarketAxess completed a lease for 83,000 square feet lease two months later and Intercept Pharmaceuticals signed a deal for 85,000-square-foot in December.
