Equinix, a real estate investment trust focused on data centers, is taking a full floor at the Durst Organization’s 45-story Midtown office tower at 1133 Sixth Avenue, the landlord told The Real Deal.

The California-based REIT is set to occupy 22,111 square feet on the sixth floor of the 1.1 million-square-foot property, between West 43rd and 44th streets.

Equinix’s New York office is now at Vornado Realty Trust’s 1540 Broadway.

“We have upgraded a mid-century modern classic with the technology and amenities that 21st century tenants demand,” Jody Durst, president of the Durst Organization TRData LogoTINY said in a statement.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Jeffrey Heller and Gregory Skaler represented Equinix while Durst’s Tom Bow and Rocco Romeo represented the landlord in-house.

Take-Two Interactive signed in December for 61,000 square feet at the building. Dutch banking giant ING took 132,000 square feet there last year.
