WeWork is coming to Times Square
Company is leasing about 45K sf across three floors of the building
Hipster-ish office workers will soon be joining the costumed characters in Times Square. WeWork has inked a lease for about 45,000 square feet at 1410 Broadway in Midtown, the company announced on Wednesday.
The office-leasing arm of the We Company will occupy space on the eighth, ninth and 16th floors of the building, taking an average of about 15,000 square feet on each floor. Its new location will open over the summer.
L.H. Charney Associates owns the building, which stands 34 stories tall and spans 385,000 square feet at the corner of West 39th Street.
WeWork announced that it had become Manhattan’s largest office tenant in September and has inked multiple new leases since then. These include about 200,000 square feet at 199 Water Street in the Financial District and 47,000 square feet at 145 West 45th Street by Times Square.
The company also recently purchased Managed By Q, an office management startup that provides office tenants with a platform for hiring staff like IT support, receptionists and cleaners.
