Chicago-based investment research firm Morningstar has grabbed 30,000 square feet at Silverstein Properties’ 4 World Trade Center, according to the developer.

The firm signed for 10 years on the 48th floor and is set to relocate by the middle of next year. Jeremy Moss, director of World Trade Center leasing at Silverstein, and a CBRE team that included Mary Ann Tighe, Evan Haskell, Steve Siegel and Adam Foster represented the landlord. CBRE’s Michael Liss represented the tenant. Morningstar’s current New York office is located on the 33rd floor of 1065 Sixth Avenue.

In July, marketing software developer MediaMath signed on to become 4 World Trade’s first private-sector tenant with a 15-year lease for 106,000 square feet spanning floors 44 through 46 at the 74-story, nearly 1,000-foot-high tower, as previously reported. — Mark Maurer
