Seven World Trade Center is now fully leased, according to Silverstein Properties, which signed MSCI to a 20-year lease for the final 125,000 available square feet on floors 47 through 49. MSCI, which provides investment decision support tools, is moving its world headquarters to the 52-story Tower From One Chase Plaza, and will consolidate its New York City operations in the space by the middle of next year.

Gary Greenspan and Michael Burgio, executive vice presidents at Cushman & Wakefield, represented MSCI, while an internal Silverstein Properties team together with CB Richard Ellis Chairman Stephen Siegel and executive vice president Peter Turchin, also of CBRE, negotiated the lease.

“The success of 7 World Trade Center is proof that in New York City, first-class office buildings always fill up,” said Silverstein Properties President and CEO Larry Silverstein. ” It also reaffirms our belief that our other buildings at the new World Trade Center will be just as successful.”

Current tenants in the 1.7-million-square-foot, LEED-certified gold building include German lender WestLB, law firm WilmerHale and foreign market trader FXDD. — Adam Fusfeld
