Co-working company Bond Collective is branching out into two new neighborhoods.

The New York City-based firm inked a 25,000-square-foot lease for six floors at 158 Lafayette Street in Soho and a 23,000-square-foot lease in the former Levitown Lightbulb Factory at Tryad Group’s 276 Greenpoint Avenue in Greenpoint.

Both leases have 10-year terms and no brokers were involved in either deal, Bond Collective said. The spaces are expected to open in the second half of 2019.

The company is part of the ownership group at 158 Lafayette, which it bought with the help of investment partners, Bond Collective CEO Shlomo Silber said. The property will feature a rooftop terrace.

Founded as Cowork|rs in 2012, the company later changed its name to Bond Collective. It currently has eight locations, including seven in New York, according to its website. The company recently opened a 30,000-square-foot space at 839 Broadway in Bushwick. The company also operates a 42,000-square-foot space in Gowanus and a Financial District office space at 60 Broad Street, among other locations.
