It looks like 3 World Trade Center is on a leasing streak.

Hudson River Trading is moving buildings and almost doubling its space at the tower, according to the New York Post. The fintech company has signed a lease for 135,000 square feet, and will leave behind 4 World Trade, where it leased 69,000 square feet in 2016.

The lease comes on the heels of Casper Sleep signing on for 70,000 square feet at the building, as The Real Deal reported last week.

HRT takes up two floors at 4 World Trade and will take up four floors at 3 World Trade. The building will be more than 40 percent leased following the firm’s move.

Asking rents at 3 World Trade tend to go for more than $80 per square foot on the higher floors, although specifics for HRT’s lease were not available.

Other companies at the tower include GroupM, McKinsey and Casper Sleep. [NYP] – Eddie Small
