Hudson’s Bay Company, the parent of Saks Fifth Avenue, has agreed to take 485,000 square feet of office and retail space at Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan.

The company signed for 233,000 square feet of office space at 225 Liberty Street and 166,000 square feet at 250 Vesey Street, according to the news site. The move will consolidate the retailer’s U.S. headquarters at Brookfield Property Partners’ 8.5 million-square-foot complex.

As part of the deal, Saks Fifth Avenue will anchor Brookfield Place’s retail component with a three-floor, 85,000 square-foot department store, its second location in Manhattan, the news site reported.

“These commitments from Hudson’s Bay Company speak to the allure of Downtown as both a retail and office destination,” Dennis Friedrich, CEO of the global office division of Brookfield Property Partners, told Real Estate Weekly.

Previous reports suggested Hudson’s Bay was choosing between 225 Liberty and 250 Vesey. The leases, which run about 20 years, bring Brookfield Place to 95-percent occupation after Bank of America Merrill Lynch exited, leaving a large vacancy.
