Law firm Kelley Drye & Warren has signed a 15-year, 103,000-square-foot office lease at 3 World Trade Center in Downtown Manhattan with Silverstein Properties. Starting 2020, Kelley Drye & Warren will occupy floors 66 through 68 at the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners-designed building.
The new tenant will be moving its headquarters to the skyscraper from 101 Park Ave. Kelley Drye & Warren will be the first law firm in the 80-floor building, where it will join tenants such as GroupM, Diageo, Better.com, Casper and IEX. Hudson River Trading is one of the newest tenants of the building, having signed a 136,000 for the 74th to 77th floors, in January. Completed in 2018, 3 World Trade Center is one of the most advanced, high-tech and sustainable office buildings in the country, according to Larry Silverstein, chairman of Silverstein Properties.

A CBRE team consisting of Mary Ann Tighe, Ken Meyerson, Adam Foster, Evan Haskell, Steve Eynon, David Caperna and Rob Hill also assisted. Patrick Heeg and Ryan McKinney of Transwestern represented the tenant. Bob Bickford led the negotiations on behalf of Kelley Drye & Warren.
