High 5 Games is moving into One World Trade Center.

The game developer and operator of the biggest social casino on Facebook signed a 15-year lease for 87,663 square feet on the 58th and 59th floors of the tower. The company, currently located at Vornado’s 770 Broadway, is expected to move during the second quarter of 2015, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The creator of hit games “Golden Goddess” and “Black Widow” had a short-term lease at the Vornado property in the space that is now occupied by Facebook

Anchor tenant Condé Nast started its move to the building earlier this month and has garnered new interest from prospective tenants, according to the newspaper. The building, co-owned by the Durst Organization and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, is now 61 percent leased, the newspaper reported.

On Wednesday, two window washers were rescued from a dangling scaffold that got stuck outside the 69th floor of the 3 million-square-foot skyscraper. [WSJ] — Claire Moses
