“Big Three” management-consulting firm McKinsey & Co. is relocating its Midtown headquarters to the World Trade Center, where it will sign a lease for about 200,000 square feet.
McKinsey is negotiating a 15-year lease with Silverstein Properties for the 60th through 64th floors of 3 World Trade Center, the New York Post reported.
The asking rent in the deal wasn’t clear, but prices in the building are in the $80s per square foot. The management firm will be relocating its Midtown headquarters from 55 East 52nd Street.
A source told the Post that McKinsey employees took a walk-through tour of their new space in the 80-story tower, where they will join GroupM when the building opens in May.
The new lease brings occupancy in the 2.5 million-square-foot tower to 900,000 square feet. McKinsey has more than 900 executives at its Midtown office.
