“The firm wanted the benefits of a full-floor space in a centrally located Class A building,” said Nicholas Markel, a vice president at Cresa. “We negotiated an excellent transaction for them, which included build-to-suit provisions that meet their requirements for space, amenities and privacy.”

JLL (JLL)’s Diana Biasotti represented the landlord, Amtad. The landlord could not be reached for comment and JLL did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The asking rent was not disclosed.

“We were looking for a larger presence in Manhattan to better service our clients,” David Heymann, managing partner for Meltzer, Lippe, Goldstein & Breitstone, said in a statement. “The space at Heron Tower accomplishes this purpose by providing us space in a Class A building suitable to continue our growth of resident attorneys in our Manhattan office.”
