L&L Holding Company and Lee & Associates NYC announced the completion of a 10-year lease at 600 Third Avenue for the office of MBAF CPAs, a certified public accounting and advisory firm.

MBAF CPAs, which has been nationally ranked as a Top 40 firm and named one of the Best of the Best firms in the country by INSIDE Public Accounting numerous times, will occupy 21,683 square feet across the entire 3rd floor of 600 Third Avenue, between East 39th and 40th Streets. In their 12 offices across the nation, MBAF CPAs employs more than 600 professionals serving domestic and international clients across a broad range of industries. The company also has an office in India.

MBAF CPAs was represented by Dennis Someck, Justin Myers and Conor Krup of Lee & Associates NYC. Building ownership was represented by David C. Berkey and Andrew Wiener of L&L Holding Company.

“Previously, MBAF CPA’s office was spread across two floors at 440 Park Avenue South,” explains Dennis Someck. “The larger floorplates at 600 Third Avenue allow for the entire New York City team to be conveniently located on the same floor. This offers many more opportunities for collaboration and a more cohesive work environment overall.”

L&L Holding Executive Vice President and Director of Leasing David C. Berkey added, “We are pleased to welcome MBAF CPAs to 600 Third Avenue. They join a growing roster of blue-chip tenants attracted to 600 Third’s prime location steps from Grand Central and the high-quality environment we have cultivated throughout the building and the public plaza.”

L&L, which acquired the 42-story tower in 2004, recently completed a series of lobby and building system renovations at the building as well as a redevelopment of its 6,500-square-foot public plaza.
