Hodgson Russ LLP will be the first new tenant of the Fisher Brothers’ newly renovated Midtown office tower.

The law firm has inked a lease for 19,871 square feet on the 23rd floor of 605 Third Avenue, the Wall Street Journal reported. The firm is the building’s first new tenant since the Fisher Brothers completed a $25 million renovation, which included a new entrance and lobby designed by architect David Rockwell.

The firm will move to the new space in mid-2017, leaving its current office at 1540 Broadway. Details of the lease were not immediately available, but asking rents in the building range from the mid $60s and low $80s per square foot, the newspaper reported. Newmark Grubb Knight Frank TRData LogoTINY represented Hodgson in the deal.

The 551-foot tall building was built in 1963. In 2014, longtime tenant Nueberger Berman announced that — after 22 years in the Fisher Brother building — it was leaving for Vornado Realty Trust’s 1290 Sixth Avenue. [WSJ] — Kathryn Brenzel
