UPDATED 12:45 p.m., June 9: Law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner has inked a lease at 55 Hudson Yards on the Far West Side.

The firm is taking 83,000 square feet at the 1.4 million-square-foot Mitsui Fudosan, the Related Companies and Oxford Properties-developed tower, according to the Wall Street Journal. Boies, which currently occupies 94,000 square feet at 575 Lexington Avenue, will take up three floors of the 51-story skyscraper.

Boies’ firm is the first to sign a lease at the building. The developers started construction on the massive tower without signing on any tenants.

“We have tremendous momentum at the moment, and we have a lot of deals cooking at various stages,” L. Jay Cross, president of Related Hudson Yards told the Journal. “Announcing Boies, Schiller will hopefully accelerate those decisions.”

Related and Oxford are also financing 10 Hudson Yards, where Coach and L’Oreal have signed on as tenants, and 30 Hudson Yards, which will be the new home of Time Warner.

Avison Young’s Arthur Mirante, Bill Morris and Greg Kraut represented Boies.

Law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom is also moving to the neighborhood as it plans to occupy 550,000 square feet at Brookfield Property Partners’ 1 Manhattan West. [WSJ] — Claire Moses
