Aby Rosen has signed tax and advisory firm Grant Thornton to 130,357 square feet at 757 Third Avenue, the latest in a slew of new leases that have brought the 500,000-square-foot tower at East 47th Street to 95 percent occupancy.

The 15-year deal will see Grant Thornton leave its roughly 110,000-square-foot space at 666 Third Avenue.

“At 757 Third, RFR has comprehensively outperformed the local submarket,” RFR’s chief operating officer Gregg Popkin told the New York Post.

Jones Lang LaSalle’s Mitchell Konsker and Alexander Chudnoff led a team that represented RFR, according to the paper, while Grant Thornton was represented by DTZ Americas’ Mike Christian, Gregg Espach and Chris Helgesen. [NYP, 1st item]Hiten Samtani
