Yes, it’s true! As reported in The Real Deal, Workville has taken over the previous Grind office space on the 22nd floor of 1412 Broadway where it will expand to offer office space and coworking memberships tailored for larger teams and growing startups.
This new Midtown Manhattan office space will add 14,000 square feet across the full 22nd floor, bringing Workville’s total in the building to 28,000 square feet.
The Real Deal reports: “Notably, the startup is replacing a competing shared-office space company, Grind, which closed the location and gave the space back to the landlords earlier this year, with several years remaining on the lease. Sources had said at the time that Grind butted heads with Chetrit and Workville, in which Aini is an investor.”
Furthermore, WorkBetter is closing its 21,000-square-foot space at 1440 Broadway after 10 years.
Workville’s Co-Founder, DJ Dashti said the recent string of closures of co-working locations is a “natural correction.”
