WeWork Confirms Five Lease Assumptions in the United States and Canada

New York, NY – April 15, 2024 – Today, WeWork, a leading global flexible space provider, announced five new lease assumptions across the U.S. and Canada. These assumptions, which are subject to court approval, underscore the Company’s momentum in its strategic restructuring. 

Four of today’s lease assumptions are for buildings where WeWork has worked collaboratively with its landlords to achieve new lease terms and are located at Terminus 100 in Atlanta, 5161 Lankershim Boulevard in Los Angeles, Marine Gateway in Vancouver and 240 Richmond Street in Toronto. The other lease assumption is for 1100 Ludlow Street in Philadelphia, a building where the existing agreement positions the Company to operate sustainably into the future. These are the first leases WeWork has assumed in Vancouver and Philadelphia.

“Spanning from the vibrant West Coast of Canada to the dynamic Southeast of the United States, these agreements reflect our progress in optimizing WeWork’s global lease portfolio and commitment to these key markets,” said Peter Greenspan, Global Head of Real Estate at WeWork. “We are grateful to our landlords for their collaboration, and remain committed to finding solutions at as many buildings as possible while charting a strong path forward for WeWork’s operations.”

WeWork has made significant progress in its portfolio optimization, reaching a final path forward at 90% of buildings around the world and reducing its total future rent commitments by over $8 billion, or more than 40%.* Through this process, WeWork has enhanced its ability to deliver best-in-class services, products and spaces to its members for the long-term.
