Global law firm Jones Day is close to signing a long-term lease for 400,000 square feet at Brookfield Place, formerly known as the World Financial Center, sources told Crain’s.

The Washington, D.C.-based firm would move from its Midtown office at 222 East 41st Street to a 34-story tower at 4 Brookfield Place, the website said. Real estate investment trust Brookfield Office Properties owns the 1.7 million-square-foot complex in the Financial District.

Time Inc. is also said to be eyeing the building as its new home, Crain’s said. Eight casual restaurants signed deals at Brookfield Place in February.

Mitch Steir of Studley is the leasing broker representing Jones Day in the deal, the report said. [Crain’s]Mark Maurer
