Accounting and advisory firm EisnerAmper is relocating its offices to a new, big space on Third Avenue.

The company signed a lease for nearly 125,000 square feet at the Durst Organization’s 733 Third Avenue at the corner of East 46th Street, the landlord told The Real Deal.

EisnerAmper took the sixth through ninth floors, plus part of the 10th floor in the 15-year deal. Asking rent for the space was $69 per square foot.

Durst Organization president Jody Durst said the space includes a private entrance on the street as well as an open staircase between floors to make it easier for Eisner’s employees to move about.

“We are particularly pleased that we can convert one of our green roofs to a private terrace for our tenants to enjoy the outdoors at their offices,” he said.

A Newmark Knight Frank team of Neal Goldmacher, Robert Emden and David Emden represented EisnerAmper in negotiations. Durst’s Tom Bow and Ashlea Aaron negotiated for the landlord in-house.

EisnerAmper, one of the largest accounting firms in the country with nearly 1,500 employees, will be moving into space previously occupied by magazine publisher Rodale Press, which media company Hearst bought in early 2018.

EisnerAmper will be relocating from nearby at SL Green Realty’s 750 Third Avenue, where it is spread out across several floors in an inefficient layout. A source familiar with the deal said the branding opportunity at 733 Third Avenue – along with the chance to build out a modern, efficient layout on contiguous floors – were some of they key drivers behind the relocation for Eisner.

Durst, meanwhile, recently updated the lobby entrance at 733 Third and is replacing the building’s windows. The company developed the 24-story, 445,000-square-foot East Side building in 1961.

Other tenants at the property include the real estate law firm Rosenberg & Estis.
