Automation Firm Triples Footprint at One World Trade

Automation technology firm Hyperscience has signed a 10-year lease for the entire 88th floor at One World Trade Center, a 34,382-square-foot space. The tenant is expanding from its existing space on the tower’s 45th floor.

“We are thrilled Hyperscience is nearly tripling their footprint with us at One World Trade Center,” said Jonathan Durst, president of The Durst Organization. “By design, we set aside specific floors at OWTC for pre-built suites with the expectation of tenant expansion. This approach has assisted tenants, like Hyperscience, to quickly set up shop and expand their presence within the building when the time is right.”

A JLL team of Steven Rotter, Brad Lane and Kyle Riker represented Hyperscience in leasing negotiations. Eric Engelhardt from Durst represented the property’s ownership, a partnership of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Durst Organization.
