WeWork Solidifies Five Lease Assumptions throughout the United States

New York, NY – April 22, 2024 – Today, WeWork, a leading global flexible space provider, announced five new lease assumptions throughout the United States. These assumptions, which are subject to court approval, affirm the Company’s progress as it nears the final stages of its strategic restructuring. 

WeWork has worked constructively with its landlords to reach new, mutually-beneficial terms at all of the buildings being assumed today, including 77 Sands Street in New York City (Announcement), 1448 Northwest Market Street in Seattle, 448 North LaSalle Street in Chicago, 600 California Street in San Francisco and 2201 Broadway in Oakland.

“Today’s assumptions highlight our commitment to maintaining a strong presence in economic hubs across the country,” said Peter Greenspan, Global Head of Real Estate at WeWork. “At WeWork, providing members with modern workspaces to enable their best work is our top priority. We appreciate our landlords’ commitment to reaching constructive solutions and together, we have a clear picture of WeWork’s next chapter.”
