Take-Two Interactive, the software company behind video games like Grand Theft Auto and BioShock, signed a 15-year lease for 61,383 square feet at Durst Organization’s building at 1133 Sixth Avenue.

The company will take the entire second and third floors of the 1.1 million-square-foot building, the Commercial Observer reported. Asking rent in the deal is $82 per square foot, and includes giving the company its own entrance on West 44th Street and 7,000 square feet of outdoor space.

The deal sees Take-Two moving from its current office at 622 Broadway, where it leases about 82,256 square feet, according to the publication.
