Bloomberg L.P., seeking to consolidate its operations into one space, negotiated a deal with Vornado Realty Trust to lease 700,000 sq ft (65,000 m sq) of office space at the base of the tower, even though One Beacon Court was originally intended to be a residential building.As part of the deal, Bloomberg was able to design the office to suit the company's needs, which included space for rows of uniform desks for approximately 4,000 employees.
Primary retail tenants include the first large national chains to open stores in the neighborhood, namely The Home Depot, H&M and The Container Store.The tower is also home to Sirio Maccioni's Le Cirque
restaurant which moved from The New York Palace
Hotel in 2006.
