WeWork Selects JLL for Leasing in 38 Locations in Seven Cities
WeWork has selected JLL as leasing agent for 38 locations in seven cities nationally, including its locations in metro Phoenix. In this role, JLL will act as an extension of WeWork’s in-house sales team, providing agency leasing for small occupiers as well as enterprise companies seeking creative and flexible solutions.
In addition to Phoenix, JLL will market and lease co-working and flexible space in New York City, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver and San Francisco. JLL’s Ryan Timpani and Nick Bialkowski from the firm’s Phoenix office will lead the local assignment.
The availability of office space and sublease space has increased significantly during the past year. However, flex space has become increasingly attractive as it provides a wide array of additional options and flexibility that may be needed now.
“Phoenix is experiencing an influx of new market requirements – a scenario in which the availability of high-quality turnkey flexible office space is critical,” said Timpani. “WeWork spaces give companies a way to quickly plant a flag here, immerse themselves in the local market, and gather the labor and submarket familiarity they need to put strategies for long-term local growth into action.”
