Law firm Nelson Levine de Luca & Hamilton signed a lease for 29,386 square feet at 17 State Street, a 42-story office building in the Financial District, according to a release from the Aby Rosen-led RFR Realty, which owns the building.

Asking rents at the 540,000-square-foot building, which was designed by Emery Roth & Sons in the 1980s, are nearly $60 per square foot. The long-term lease covers the full 29th and 30th floors. Other law firms there include Neville Peterson and Wechsler & Cohen.

Steve Morrows, AJ Camhi and Ryan Silverman represented RFR in the lease. Lewis Cowan of Mohr Partners acted on behalf of the law firm, the release said.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the city chopped the tax assessment value of 17 State Street by $21.1 million, or 14.2 percent, as The Real Deal reported. — Mark Maurer
