Twitter Extends Commitment to Boutique Office in Chelsea
Twitter will continue to occupy all of the office space at Columbia Property Trust’s 249 W. 17th St. The REIT signed the social media company to a five-year extension of its five-year lease at 215,000 square feet, continuing its presence at the boutique Chelsea property through 2030.
Twitter’s New York office has been located at the Chelsea property since the building was fully renovated in 2014. It’s the company’s second-largest space behind its San Francisco headquarters.
“We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Twitter at 249 West 17th Street,” said Columbia CEO Nelson Mills. “And we’re delighted that this fully renovated and highly amenitized property, located in Manhattan’s premier neighborhood for leading tech and media companies, will serve as their New York home for years to come.”
Christina Clark and Peter Sabesan from Cresa represented Twitter in lease negotiations. CBRE’s Neil King and Paul Amrich represented Columbia.
