WeWork, a major player in the blossoming co-working market, has just made an announcement certain to energize the New York City start-up community: the signing of a 15-year lease at 175 Varick Street, a 130,000-square foot, 10-story tower in lower Manhattan.
Starting in 2012, the provider, which already boasts three Manhattan locations and another in San Francisco, will occupy four floors totalling out at 75,000 square feet. As with WeWork’s other locations, the space will be collaborative and communal in spirit, open to individuals, start-ups, and small businesses.
More importantly, perhaps, the floors are expected to be decorated with a range of WeWork’s unique offerings. In the past, these benefits have included screening rooms, recording studios, Xbox lounges, meditation centers, and fresh fair trade coffee every morning. With a tried and proven understanding of the tools necessary for enhanced and boundless creativity, WeWork is in position to add another destination to the city’s competitive start-up atmosphere.
