The U.S.-based arm of global financial services firm Schroders is set to move to Bank of China’s 7 Bryant Park in Midtown.
Schroders Investment Management North America signed a 15-year lease to take the 17th through 21st floors, and part of the 16th floor, for a total of 74,000 square feet, the New York Post reported.
Schroders is leaving its offices at 875 Third Avenue in 2017.
Houston-based developer Hines built the 450,000-square-foot 7 Bryant Park along with JPMorgan’s asset management arm. Bank of China, originally the building’s anchor tenant, decided to buy the property last year for $600 million. The bank occupies 250,000 square feet there. Hines remains the property and asset manager. [NYP] — Ariel Stulberg
