The Real Deal New York

Mobile advertising firm to take 44K sf at One WTC

Durst and Port Authority's tower now more than 60 percent occupied

With mobile advertising firm xAd inking a 43,849-square-foot lease for the tower’s 60th floor, the Port Authority and Durst Organization’s One World Trade Center is now more than 60 percent leased.

Asking rents were $69 per square foot.

The ad firm, which was founded by Dipanshu Sharma, will move in directly above new tenant High 5 Games, an online gaming company that signed a lease for 88,000 square feet across the tower’s 58th and 59th floors last week. That deal was inked on the same day two window washers were stuck in a dangling scaffold outside the skyscraper’s 69th floor.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Jon Mayeske and Jamie Katcher represented xAd. A Cushman team lead by Tara Stacom represented Durst, according to the newspaper.

New tenants have signed on to take a total 235,000 square feet of space in the tower in the last six months, the New York Post reported.[NYP, 1st] — Claire Moses
