NEW YORK CITY-As Midtown rents continue to rise Downtown is looking better. Jones Lang LaSalle completed a lease for BearingPoint Inc. at Three World Financial Center with Brookfield Properties Corp. The IT consulting and solutions firm signed for 53,611 sf at the 2.1-million-sf building, also known as American Express Tower. The firm will relocate to the building from its current premises at 757 Third Ave.

BearingPoint was represented by Lisa Kiell, managing director, and Barbara Winter and Basil Vasilkioti, senior vice presidents, all with Jones Lang LaSalle’s New York office. Building owner Brookfield Properties was represented in-house by Jeremiah Larkin, senior vice president and director of leasing, and David Cheikin, vice president of leasing. The Three World Financial Center building is located at the southwest corner of Vesey Street and West Street.

“Service companies especially are giving Downtown a closer look,” Kiell tells “Three World Financial Center is an ideal location [for service companies] given the quality of the space, the good price and proximity to financial clients.” Kiel, who couldn’t give a sf price, noted that there are a couple of Midtown law firms looking at Downtown.

Other tenants at the 53-floor building with water views include American Express Co., the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Computer Generated Solutions, and Morgan and Finnegan, LLP.
