Then, the cushioned and decorative floor mat maker House of Noa took 3,000 square feet on the 28th floor of 1270 Avenue of the Americas. The retailer will relocate from West Hartford, Conn., Tishman said.

Finally, Empery Asset Management, a hedge fund specializing in public investments, renewed 3,000 square feet on the 12th floor at 1 Rockefeller Plaza. The company has been in the building since 2011.

A Tishman spokesperson declined to provide lease terms or asking rents. Average asking rent in Rockefeller Center office buildings is hovering around $79 per square foot, according to Cushman & Wakefield’s latest market report.

Blythe Kinsler, Samantha Augarten, Joe Simon and Kate Walker handled all three leases in-house on behalf of Tishman Speyer. 

Michael Blum from Savills represented Empery in negotiations. Justin Haber from JLL handled it for DHR. Brendan O’Leary of Cushman & Wakefield brokered the deal for House of Noa. 

Spokespeople for the C&W, JLL and Savills didn’t return requests for comment.
