Accenture, a business and technology consulting giant, inked a lease for 250,000-square-feet at Brookfield Properties’ One Manhattan West.

The company signed a 15-year lease for the top eight floors of the Hudson Yards tower, the Wall Street Journal reported. Accenture is consolidating its other offices in the city, including two locations at 1345 and 155 Sixth Avenue, as part of its efforts to invest heavily in its U.S. operations.

“For us, we were very much looking at space we knew would be an iconic New York location,” Kathleen O’Reilly, senior managing director of Accenture’s U.S. Northeast region, told the Journal. “We’ve taken the top floors of the building, and that expansiveness is almost a metaphor of our thinking.”

The 2.1-million-square-foot tower has attracted other big-name tenants. Ernst & Young has been in talks with Brookfield to take 600,000-square feet in the building. Amazon.com has also mulled moving to the eight-acre, six building development. In May, The Real Deal reported that patent-litigation law firm McKool Smith is in late-stage talks to lease the 50th and 51st floors of One Manhattan West. [WSJ]Kathryn Brenzel
