The London-based firm will upsize its office space from the roughly 5,000 square feet it has leased nearby at 295 Madison Avenue since 2015.

ERM advises both industrial and non-industrial companies on environmental issues and has 134 offices across the world, including more than 50 in the United States, according to its website.

SavillsJim Wenk, Alex Redlus and Kirill Azovtsev represented the tenant in the deal while Mark Boisi and Bryan Boisi of Cushman & Wakefield (CWK) handled it for Stahl. Representatives for Savills and C&W declined to comment.

Other tenants in the property include M&T Bank, Intermediate Capital Group and National Australia Bank.
