A French game developer and tech advertising agency signed leases for a total of 36,000 square feet at labor union Unite Here’s 275 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea. Although Tishman Real Estate Services does not own the office property, it is heading up a $10 million renovation there.

The building, between 25th and 26th streets, is receiving a makeover in the entrance, lobby and hallways. FreeWheel Media and Gameloft SE each grabbed a full floor of more than 18,000 square feet, the Wall Street Journal reported. The brokers involved with the deals were undisclosed.

“The building needed to be repositioned to attract those kinds of tenants,” Joseph Simone of Tishman told the Journal.

A 55,984-square-foot space at the building hit the market in January, as The Real Deal reported. [WSJ, 2nd]Mark Maurer
