NEW YORK CITY-One World Trade Center has secured another tenant, in the form of three government agencies. The General Services Administration has announced plans to move its regional headquarters to the tower, along with the US Army Corps of Engineers New York district headquarters and the US Customs and Border Protection New York field office. The government agencies will take six floors in the iconic building, marking the return of the federal government to the site.  

The agencies are planning to move in late 2015 to floors 50 through 55. GSA secured a lease agreement for approximately 270,000 feet of space for an initial term of 20 years. GSA will create flexible and collaborative workspaces that reduce these agencies’ footprints by an average of 40%. The building is owned by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, with the Durst Organization serving as an equity partner on the property. Durst represented itself in the lease negotiations. It was unclear at press time who represented GSA.
