Schnitzer West, which developed 1918, a 36-story office building, said the company took 49,000 square feet, bringing the building to 95 percent leased.
A spokesman for KPMG, which advises clients on audits and tax issues, said the Seattle office will move to a smaller space late next year.
The company’s office now is in the Norton Building, 801 Second Ave., where a fellow tenant said the company occupies 75,000 square feet.
KPMG’s website states the company employs 335 people in Seattle. The spokesman said even though the Seattle office is moving to a smaller space, KPMG is not reducing staff here.
Brokers Michael Dash and Matt Christian of Cushman & Wakefield Commerce represent KPMG.
