WeWork Fails in Bid to Lease Space in New York’s World Trade Center

By Anonymous

Lease negotiations ended after landlord Durst received better offers

Co-working giant WeWork Cos.’ plan to lease as many as a dozen floors at One World Trade Center fell apart last month, sinking the company’s monthslong bid to secure space in one of the world’s tallest and most iconic skyscrapers.

WeWork had been in negotiations with the Durst Organization to rent about 220,000 square feet in the downtown Manhattan tower, which at 1,776 feet has been the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere since opening in 2014.
