Wells Fargo is consolidating its Manhattan offices into at least 300,000 square feet at 120 Park Avenue.

The Midwestern bank’s Manhattan office space is currently spread across Tower 49, Grand Central Tower, 1211 Sixth Avenue and 40 West 57th Street. The new deal will allow the tenant to give up most of that space, according to Real Estate Weekly, which first had news of the deal.

It could include expansion rights to 400,000 square feet.

The tower is the former headquarters of cigarette maker Phillip Morris, whose parent company, Altria, sold it to Global Holdings in 2007 for $525 million, The 640,000-square-foot building has sat largely vacant since.

Sources say that Wells will likely pay rents in the $50s per square foot.

Eastdil Secured, led by chief executive Ben Lambert, represented the tenant. Wells Fargo owns Eastdil. Paul Glickman of Jones Lang LaSalle represented the landlord.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
