Welcome, WeWork Manhattan Employees


Welcome, WeWork Manhattan Employees

With many New Yorkers wary to commute into Manhattan during the coronavirus pandemic, companies are finding their own forms of flexible and hybrid work—and who better than one of the most disruptive companies in commercial real estate to show its adaptability and resourcefulness?

Coworking leader WeWork announced it is allowing Manhattan-based employees to relocate to the company’s new Brooklyn Navy Yard office, where two floors are reserved for WeWork staff. With WeWork leasing roughly a third of the 675,000-square-foot Dock 72, it sounds like there is plenty of room for social distancing.

WeWork opened in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 2019, when an executive from co-developer Boston Properties touted Dock 72 as a “new home for ideas and innovation” built to be “functional, sustainable, and resilient, all while giving tenants top-tier amenities and panoramic views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines.” 

While the pandemic dealt a devastating blow to coworking spaces, many experts believe coworking may be primed for a comeback. Bill Rudin, CEO of Dock 72 co-developer Rudin Management, said having more WeWork employees based in Brooklyn would help give the Class-A office building a boost, thanks to the “life and animation” that WeWork’s presence brings.
