WE currently has its offices at 110 Leroy Street in the West Village and space at 145 West 30th Street for its WE Codeword division, which formed in 2019 when WE bought marketing agency Codeword. The company plans to move to its new digs in the fourth quarter of this year, the source said.

JLL’s Sam Seiler and Kyle Riker represented WE while Rory Murphy, Chase Gordon and Lauren Davidson of Transwestern brokered the deal for the landlord, Wohio Holding. The JLL brokers and a spokesman for Transwestern declined to comment.

Other tenants in the 372,048 square foot property include WeWork and lingerie manufacturers Adore Me and Van Dale Industries.
