This is an interesting look into our shifting economy and the way businesses office.
WeWork could become the largest office tenant in Manhattan.
The company is negotiating a lease in 1 World Trade Center to take over about 200,000 square feet in the building, a source close to the deal told CNNMoney.
WeWork recently became the second-largest renter of office space in the borough, according to a Cushman & Wakefield report earlier this month. WeWork trails just about 74,000 square feetbehind JPMorgan’s New York tenancy. If the deal goes through, WeWork would surpass the bank.
That’s a feat for the New York-based coworking space company, which is just eight years old.
Crain’s New York Business first reported that WeWork was close to finalizing a lease at 1 World Trade Center. WeWork declined to comment.
