One of the Big Four is getting even bigger.

Accounting firm Deloitte is expanding to new digs at 1221 Sixth Avenue, in a 98,000-square-foot deal with Rockefeller Group.

Deloitte will occupy the full 39th and 40th floors at the 51-story, 2.65 million-square-foot tower formerly known as the McGraw-Hill Building, the New York Post reported. Asking rent on the highest floors exceeds $100 per square foot, according to the newspaper.

Cushman & Wakefield’s TRData LogoTINY John Cefaly represented Deloitte, according to the Post, while Rockefeller Group was represented in-house by Ed Guiltinan. Rockefeller Group owns a 55 percent stake in the tower, and China Investment Corp. owns the rest, having bought their stake from Canada Pension Plan for over $1 billion last year, as The Real Deal first reported.
