Mizuho leases 411,000 square feet at 1271 Avenue of the Americas for its future US headquarters.

New York City—Midtown Manhattan is not passively sitting back as Hudson Yards lures tenants to move to the far West side. Rockefeller Group announced on Tuesday that Mizuho Americas expanded its plans for occupancy at the redeveloped 1271 Avenue of the Americas in Rockefeller Center, leasing an additional 270,000 square feet.

The lease follows the June announcement of Mizuho’s 141,000 square-foot lease in the building. It nearly triples the size of the financial institution’s future US headquarters, increasing its occupancy at 1271 Avenue of the Americas to 411,000 square feet. Mizuho will move into the space in 2019, relocating employees from multiple locations to the 2.1 million square-foot, 48-story tower.
