Tishman Speyer Signs Baker Tilly, SEB to Offices at The Spiral

Tishman Speyer has secured agreements with Baker Tilly US, LLP and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken, AB (SEB) to move their New York City offices to The Spiral, its recently completed 66-story office tower on the West Side of Midtown Manhattan. 

In the larger transaction, advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly signed a long-term lease to occupy approximately 28,000 square feet beginning in mid-2023. 

Tishman Speyer also finalized an 11-year, 15,000-square-foot lease with SEB, a leading northern European financial services group, which will relocate from 245 Park Ave. in mid-2023.  With these commitments, Tishman Speyer has now leased approximately 72% of the 2.8-million-square-foot office tower. 

An in-house leasing team represented Tishman Speyer in both transactions.  Baker Tilly was represented by Geoffrey Euston, David Glassman and Joe Cabrera of CBRE. SEB was represented by Jonathan Schindler and Aron Schreier of Cushman & Wakefield.
