UPDATED, 11:26 a.m., April 17: Mere months after committing to 90,000 square feet at Dumbo Heights, WeWork is taking another 72,000 square feet of office space at the complex, The Real Deal has learned.

The $5 billion shared office space provider is expected to officially sign up for the space at 77 Sands Street in the next few weeks, sources said. In August, it signed a 90,000-square-foot lease at 81 Prospect Street. Dumbo Heights is being developed by a joint venture between Jared Kushner’s Kushner Cos., Aby Rosen’s RFR Realty, and Asher Abehsera’s LIVWRK.

Financial terms of the lease were not disclosed. A spokesperson for the Dumbo Heights project declined to comment on the matter.

Kushner, RFR and Invesco purchased the five-building, 1.2 million-square-foot complex – formerly known as the Watchtower buildings – for $375 million in October 2013. E-commerce firm Etsy, which just went public, will be the anchor tenant at the complex with up to 200,000 square feet of space.

WeWork, led by Adam Neumann and Miguel McKelvey, is one of the city’s most ravenous consumers of office space. It leased 240,000 square feet at 85 Broad Street earlier this year, and signed on for 125,000 square feet at the Durst Organization’s 205 East 42nd Street in December.
