NEW YORK CITY-Developer Larry Silverstein’s 7 World Trade Center now has 88,568 sf less to fill. Moody’s has extended its footprint in the 52-story, 1.6-million-sf building by taking an additional two floors for a total of 80,000 sf, and DRW Commodities has leased 8,568 sf.

Moody’s signed on for 590,000 sf last year though a 20-year lease. With the latest lease, Moody’s will occupy 670,000 sf on floors 11 through 28. The firm is expected to begin moving into its new space this June. As GlobeSt.com exclusively reported, at the beginning of March Grubb & Ellis was pegged to manage Moody’s new space and the move of an estimated 1,700 employees. Most of the employees will relocate from the recently sold headquarters at 99 Church St..

“The addition of two floors for Moody’s and the first tenant on the pre-built 34th floor continues a string of recent successes at 7 World Trade Center and for the overall Downtown commercial market,” says Silverstein. “Although the building only opened last May, we have secured commitments for nearly 1.1 million sf, which represents two-thirds of the building’s available space.”

DRW’s has taken space in the pre-built floor that is being marketed to small but growing firms. The company has an office at One North End here and in Chicago.

Roger Silverstein of Silverstein Properties, Stephen Siegel of CB Richard Ellis and Simon Wasserberger of CBRE handled the transaction for Silverstein. Cushman & Wakefield’s John Cefaly and Gus Field represented Moody’s.

Other 7 WTC tenants include ABN Amro (140,000 sf), Ameriprise Financial (40,000 sf), Darby & Darby PC (80,000 sf), Mansueto Ventures (40,000 sf), New York Academy of Sciences (40,000 sf), Silverstein Properties (40,000 sf), and World Trade Center Design Task Force (40,000 sf).
