HSBC Heads to Tishman Speyer’s Spiral for U.S. Headquarters
HSBC Bank USA will relocate its US headquarters to The Spiral, Tishman Speyer’s 65-story office tower that is nearing completion at 66 Hudson Blvd. on Manhattan. The bank expects to relocate from its current Midtown offices in January 2024.
“As we embark on the next chapter of HSBC in the US, we believe it is the right time to relocate our hybrid workforce to a headquarters designed for the future,” said Michael Roberts, HSBC CEO, US and Americas. “This new space demonstrates our commitment to the US and is an investment in strengthening our employee and customer experience while also bringing us closer to our net zero objectives.”
Peter Riguardi, Matt Astrachan, Ken Siegel, Mitch Konsker and Will McGarry of JLL represented HSBC on the lease. Tishman Speyer was represented by its in-house leasing team. With the new tenant, the 2.8-million-square-foot office tower is now 70% pre-leased.
