Weight Watchers bulks up Manhattan presence with lease in Midtown

March 21, 2012 03:30PM

Weight Watchers has secured a lease for almost 3,000 square feet of space at 64 West 48th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues, according to a press release issued today. The group will move into their new 14th floor digs by the end of May. The asking rent was not disclosed.

Weight Watchers currently occupies the 5th floor of the building in a temporary space until the 14th floor is ready for occupancy. Weight Watchers already has four other locations around Manhattan, from Midtown down to Noho.

The lease spans 10 years and four months, and will give Weight Watchers space to hold group meetings and member weigh-ins.

Grace Sardell of Sardell & Company represented Weight Watchers and Ross Spitalnick represented Muss Development, who owns the Midtown office building.

Other building tenants include Xerox and City Sports, the latter of which occupies ground-floor retail space.

Muss Development has owned the 130,000-square-foot, 17-story building since 2008. — Zachary Kussin
