Moody’s Investor Services is reportedly looking to occupy two floors at One World Trade Center.

The firm is expected to sign a lease for an 80,000 square feet expansion at the Durst Organization and Port Authority of New York and New Jersey-owned skyscraper, the New York Post reported. The credit-rating service occupies 680,000 square feet at Silverstein Properties’ nearby 7 World Trade Center.

Moody’s would be the first big financial-services tenant to sign in the 3 million-square-foot building, according to the newspaper. It would also be the biggest new lease since High 5 Games signed on for 87,600 square feet late last year.

One World Trade Center is roughly 63 percent occupied, according to the Post. Other tenants in the building include Condé Nast, China Center and the US General Services Administration. [NYP] — Claire Moses
