WeWork files motion to assume lease at 830 NE Holladay St. and completes optimization in the market

Portland, OR – February 20, 2024 – Today, WeWork, a leading global flexible space provider, announced it has reached a revenue sharing agreement and, as a result, assumed its lease at 830 NE Holladay St. in Portland. The assumption, which is subject to court approval, marks the conclusion of WeWork’s efforts to renegotiate its lease terms in the Portland market and positions the company for a sustainable, successful future in the city. 

WeWork will continue to occupy the entire Lloyd district building through an agreement that strengthens its relationship with American Asset Trust, where both parties will share in the operation’s success through a revenue split. 830 NE Holladay St. is one of multiple alternative lease structures the company has reached through its strategic restructuring and the eighth lease it has assumed.

We’ve long known that flexible workspace would thrive in this vibrant and unique city and are proud to be part of the Portland community.”

Among the members at 830 NE Holladay St. is Marc Connolly, Director of Lead Generation & Land at Hawthorne Renewable Energy. “Our company was immediately drawn to WeWork 830 NE Holladay St. by the bustling community. This energy and environment is transformative to our team, who spend the majority of their week in the office, said Connolly. “As a company on a mission to lead America’s advancement towards a sustainable and secure energy system, WeWork’s flexibility helps support our goal.”
