The Wing, a women-only co-working firm, has signed lease expansions at its first two locations.

The company is taking an additional 15,000 square feet at Abner Properties’ 45 East 20th Street in the Flatiron District and Nathan Baden’s 52 Mercer Street in Soho.

At its original location in Flatiron, the Wing is tacking on 5,000 square feet on the 11th floor, bringing its total square footage in the building to 14,000. Meanwhile, the company is taking over the fourth floor in the Soho building, growing its total spread to 20,000 square feet across two floors.

“It’s an especially big deal for us to expand our original Flatiron space, which we opened only 19 months ago,” said Lauren Kassan, the Wing’s co-founder and COO.

Since its launch, the Wing has raised $40 million in funding. It used $8 million in Series A funding from April of last year toward its expansion into Brooklyn and Washington D.C. One of its investors is rival WeWork, which led the $32 million Series B round with venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates.

The company was recently in the news after the New York City Commission on Human Rights scrutinized its no-men-allowed rule. In an interview with Business Insider, Audrey Gelman, the Wing’s co-founder, disclosed that they have a powerful backer in the case: Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The company currently has four locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Washington D.C. Its outposts in San Francisco and Los Angeles will open later this year.
