WeWork, Resnick Ink 2nd Leasing Deal This Month

Illustrating the vigorous pace of expansion by the major coworking firms in Manhattan, WeWork has signed a full-floor lease at 8 W. 40th St. It’s the second deal this month between WeWork and landlord Jack Resnick & Sons, following a commitment to seven full floors at Resnick’s 880 Third Ave.

The lease encompasses 6,667 square feet on the 2nd floor of 8 W. 40th, and brings the 162,658-square-foot boutique office property to 100% occupancy. “We are excited by the opportunity to grow our relationship with WeWork,” said Jonathan Resnick, president of Resnick & Sons.

Resnick & Sons was represented by an in-house leasing team of Brett Greenberg and Fran Delgorio. The deal was led by Arash Gohari and Chris Grimaldi on WeWork’s side. In all, WeWork has now committed to more than 75,000 square feet within the Resnick portfolio.
