Elsewhere in the building, French skincare company Clarins leased an entire 15,100-square-foot floor for a new office. Clarins will relocate from One Park Avenue in Midtown East, where it has space on the 19th floor. Asking rent in the 10-year lease was $67 per square foot. 

Michael Cohen, Andrew Roos and Howard Kaplowitz of Colliers represented Signature Bank in the negotiations. Scott Weiss of Savills represented Clarins in its lease. For both deals, Ryan Kass handled the transaction in-house for the landlord, along with Scott Klau, Erik Harris and Neil Rubin of Newmark
