KPF on the Move to Tishman Speyer’s 11 West 42nd Street

In a long-term deal for 65,000 square feet, the architectural firm KPF is relocating its offices to Tishman Speyer’s 11 West 42nd Street.

Kohn Pederson Fox, architects of the future LEED Platinum Beer Belly Building headquarters of JPMorganChase at the World Trade Center site, as well as LEED Gold-certified Court Square Two in Long Island City, is moving its offices from 111 West 57th Street south to Tishman Speyer’s 11 West 42nd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues. The firm has inked a long-term deal for 65,000 square feet across the tower’s 8th, 9th, and 18th floors, where asking rents were in the neighborhood of $67 per square foot.

The 32-story building, which was originally called the Salmon Tower, was built back in 1927 and originally designed by architects York & Sawyer. It features just over 932,000 square feet of office and retail space, and its H-shape layout allows natural light to penetrate throughout each floor plate, which offer eight corner offices apiece. KPF, which will begin moving into its new space later this year, was represented by GVA Williams in its negotiations with Tishman Speyer.
