Tishman Speyer has secured new lease agreements with Baker Tilly US LLP and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB to relocate their New York City offices to The Spiral in Midtown Manhattan. The recently completed, 2.8 million-square-foot tower is now 72 percent leased. The landlord was represented in-house in both transactions, while CBRE and Cushman & Wakefield arranged the deals for the tenants.

Advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly signed a 28,000-square-foot agreement to occupy the 66-story property’s 22nd floor. The European financial services group inked an 11-year, 15,000-square-foot lease at The Spiral’s 28th floor and will relocate from its current offices at 245 Park Ave. Both commitments are effective mid-year.
