WeWork has leased 240,000 square feet at 85 Broad Street.

The office space provider’s deal at the 1.1 million-square-foot, former Goldman Sachs building near Stone Street is the first major lease of the year, according to the New York Post.

Asking rents for the space — WeWork inked a lease for the 16th through 18th and 28th through 30th floors — ranged from the $50s to the mid $60s, according to the Post.

Goldman Sachs sold the building to MetLife in 1985 for $74.4 million, according to the newspaper. Last year, Beacon Capital Partners bought a stake in the property for an undisclosed amount.
