The landlord, Colliers International, was represented in-house by Robert Getreu and Michael Berger. WeWork was represented in-house by Mark Lapidus on the 15-year deal. WeWork will take floors 2 through 7 of the 17-story, 287,000-square-foot East 28th Street building, and their space will have a private entrance, Berger said.
“With this new location WeWork members will have access to a growing community of entrepreneurs and a network of vibrant, collaborative workspaces nationwide,” a representative for WeWork told TRD. The company, which is the second-largest shared office space provider in the city after Luxembourg-based Regus, has been one of New York’s most aggressive lessees. The new transaction gives them around 800,000 square feet in the city.
WeWork’s recent deals include a 42,371-square-foot expansion at ACTA Realty’s Cunard Lines Building at 25 Broadway in the Financial District, and a 115,000-square-foot deal at 113-133 West 18th Street in Midtown South.
