Uber’s Bike-Share Company Jump Expanding Within Dumbo Heights’ 55 Prospect Street
The company is expanding to about 15,000 square feet with the addition of 5,000 square square in the building, where asking rents are in the high $50s to low $60s per square foot, sources with knowledge of the deal said. Leases at the property vary from two years up to 15 years.
CBRE’s Sacha Zarba and Alice Fair represented Uber in the deal. A CBRE spokeswoman didn’t immediately provide a comment. Newmark Knight Frank’s Whitten Morris and his team represent the owners at Dumbo Heights. Morris declined to comment, as did ownership. And an Uber representative didn’t reply to a request for comment.
Uber acquired Jump last year after partnering with the company to launch Uber Bike, which allowed Uber riders to book Jump bikes through the Uber app, according to TechCrunch.
