Durst earmarks 94K sf at One WTC for smaller tenants

The Durst Organization will earmark 94,000 square feet for smaller office tenants at One World Trade Center, the landlord and developer said in a release today. Two entire floors – the 45th and 46th – are being set aside for this purpose, and will allow up to 18 tenants to take smaller spaces than previously available in the trophy tower. Subdivisions of the space can range from 2,000 square feet to 43,000 square feet.

“There is demand, from across the globe, from large multinational companies to establish a presence at One World Trade Center,” said Eric Engelhardt, director of leasing at the tower in the statement.

The Real Deal reported that the building planned to subdivide spaces last year, though plans weren’t final at that time.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Tara Stacom is leading leasing efforts at the 1,776-foot-tall, three million-square-foot building, which is about 55 percent leased.

“The pre-built program provides an opportunity for a smaller tenant to immediately occupy space in a prominent building,” Stacom said. “We will also build space tailored to a tenant’s specific needs.” — Hiten Samtani
