Spotify Grows Yet Again at 4 WTC

Spotify has added to its already mammoth presence at 4 World Trade Center, with a sublease from the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The music streaming service is subleasing 85,666 square feet from the bistate agency at the Silverstein Properties office tower, bringing its total footprint there to about 564,000 square feet.

Crain’s New York Business reported that the Port Authority disclosed the subleasing agreement with Spotify at a board meeting in July. The authority reported that the sublease would net it about $80.9 million over the 15-year life of the lease.

The sublease marks the Swedish firm’s second expansion since coming to 4 World Trade in early 2017. A few months after signing up for 378,000 square feet there, the company added 100,000 square feet, bringing the property to full occupancy. The latest deal makes it the tower’s second largest tenant after the Port Authority.
