Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG)—one of the country’s largest public accounting firms—is getting bigger digs within the World Trade Center complex.

The firm inked a deal for 12,000 square feet in Silverstein Properties3 World Trade Center for part of the 36th floor, a spokeswoman for the landlord said. The spokeswoman would not provide the length of the lease, but said asking rents in the 80-story building are in the $80s per square foot.

DHG, which is based in North Carolina, first took space in Silverstein’s coworking portion of 7 World Trade Center then signed a seven-year lease for 5,023 square feet at 4 World Trade Center in 2015, according to Silverstein. It plans to move into 3 WTC in the fourth quarter.

“Progressive organizations like Dixon Hughes Goodman want to be in high-tech, green buildings,” Larry Silverstein, the chairman of Silverstein Properties, said in a statement. “And they want to be right next to the best mass transit and surrounded by dynamic residential neighborhoods filled with brilliant young minds.”

Jeremy Moss and Camille McGratty of Silverstein handled the deal in-house along with CBRE (CBRE)’s Mary Ann Tighe, Steven Siegel, Adam Foster, Steve Eynon, Evan Haskell, David Caperna, Ken Meyerson and Rob Hill. CBRE’s Rob Wizenberg represented the tenant. A spokeswoman for CBRE did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Silverstein kicked the year off with a flurry of activity at the 2.5-million-square-foot 3 WTC with spirits conglomerate Diageo taking 87,000 square feet and mattress company Casper signing on for 70,000 square feet in January. Mortgage lender nabbed 44,000 square feet last month.
