    Updated, 10:24 a.m., July 2: A hedge fund manager has taken 60,000 square feet at Edward Minskoff’s 101 Sixth Avenue, in the latest sign of once-gritty Hudson Square’s growing appeal to financial companies, the Wall Street Journal reported.

    Two Sigma Investments, which has $13.7 billion assets under management, already occupies space at 100 Sixth Avenue, as well as in three buildings on West Broadway and Spring Street. The company, which touts its lack of “Wall Street swagger,” declined to comment to the Journal on the move. [more]
