Trial attorney David Boeis’ law firm may be the first tenant to sign at the new 51-story building at Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side in a deal that would see the legal legend’s firm downsize from its current 150,000 square foot space in Lexington Avenue. The Hudson Yards deal would see Boies firm shed 50,000 square feet.
55 Hudson Yards is a partnership between the Related Companies, Oxford Properties Group and Japanese real estate firm Mitsui Fudosan. Boies Schiller & Flexner would be the second major law firm to commit to Hudson Yards after Brookfield Property Partners signed Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom to a 20-year lease at 1 Manhattan West this week.
Boies’ high profile client list includes late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, filmmaker Michael Moore and, most recently, film studio Sony Pictures Entertainment during The Interview/North Korea hacking scandal.– Rey Mashayekhi Source: The Real Deal
