The law firm inked a deal to take another full floor at Rockefeller’s 2.2 million-square-foot tower after first signing a lease to move there four years ago, the landlord announced.
The new deal brings the law firm’s footprint to 489,000 square feet in the building.
JLL’s Ken Siegel, Tom Doughty and Lisa Kiell represented White & Case in the lease. A Cushman & Wakefield team led by Robert Lowe handles leasing at the building alongside Rockefeller’s in-house team headed by leasing director Ed Guiltinan.
The Rockefeller Group completed a $50 million capital improvements program to the building in 2016. The property is now 97 percent occupied.
Leasing among law firms has been on the rise, and the Sixth Avenue submarket has captured more than half of the 4.6 million square feet firms leased over the last 18 months, according to Cushman.
