Tax law firm Roberts & Holland signed a lease for 27,000 square feet at Rudin Management’s 1675 Broadway in Midtown West.

The firm took the whole 17th floor at the 35-story, 850,000-square-foot tower between West 52nd and 53rd streets, the Commercial Observer reported.

The asking rent was $75 per square foot in the 15-year deal.

Rudin in recent years has been filling space in the building, signing tenants like financial firm Bankrate to more than 24,000 square feet.

The signing of Roberts & Holland “shows that Midtown West is still a strong market,” company CEO William Rudin said.

Rudin added that the property, which is located a few blocks from the Q train subway station, should become more appealing with the opening of the Second Avenue subway.

Roberts & Holland will be relocating from Worldwide Plaza on Eighth Avenue, where it occupies 30,716 square feet, according to CoStar.

Lewis Miller, Andrew Sussman, Brad Needleman and Ariel Ball of CBRE represented the law firm, while Robert Steinman of Rudin Management negotiated on behalf of the owner in-house. [CO]Rich Bockmann
