NEW YORK CITY-The Kushner Cos.’ 666 Fifth Ave., which earlier this week secured a record-setting retail lease by Japanese apparel chain Uniqlo, now has a big deal in its office component. Law firm Vinson & Elkins LLP has renewed and expanded its headquarters space to nearly 81,000 square feet over three full floors.

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed; a release describes the Vinson & Elkins deal as a long-term lease. It adds the remaining 6,972-square-foot portion of the 41-story office tower’s 27th floor to the energy law firm’s existing space. In a statement, Kushner principal Jared Kushner pronounces himself “delighted that one of the world’s most prestigious law firms has decided to continue to grow its New York practice here at 666 Fifth.”

Lewis Miller of CB Richard Ellis represented Vinson & Elkins, while Tishman Speyer Properties’ Tod Koltis and Peter Brindley spoke for the building owner. Founded in 1917 in Houston, Vinson & Elkins today has offices in 12 cities worldwide in addition to New York and Houston.
