Seattle-based Clearwire Communications — a high-speed wireless services provider for consumers across the country — has signed leases for a dozen locations in the tri-state area to open in November, according to consulting firm Northwest Atlantic, which brokered the deal. The new sites are part of a broad national expansion plan, as The Real Deal reported in June, which includes finding up to 50 more sites in the New York area, many of which are slated to open in the next six to nine months.

Several of the new locations are corporate sites — which can be as big as 2,000 square feet, as opposed to franchisees, which are generally under 1,000 feet — and are scattered around Manhattan, with locations in Midtown and the Upper West Side, as well as in Jamaica, Queens and Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. “The company is thrilled with the reception we have received from our roll-out in the Philadelphia and DC markets,” said Geza Degall, vice president of real estate for Clearwire. “We anticipate bigger and better from New York.” The new sites will join Clearwire’s Union Square location at 865 Broadway, between 17th and 18th streets, where a new lease for 2,000 square feet was announced in June.
