Global office-sharing company WeWork has signed a lease at One Metropolitan Square in downtown St. Louis, establishing the company’s first location in the city. WeWork provides shared workspaces and services for entrepreneurs, freelancers, startups, small businesses and large enterprises.
WeWork will lease 60,000 square feet on the 22nd and 23rd floors at One Metropolitan Square, a Class-A office tower owned by an affiliate of the 601W Companies.
As the tallest high-rise in St. Louis, One Metropolitan Square boasts 43 stories and 1.5 million square feet of office space and ground-level retail. Its ownership group has invested $2.5 million in recent years to upgrade the building’s amenities to include downtown’s first food hall and a massive 28 x 10 foot media wall in the building’s lobby. Plans are currently in the works to add a tenant lounge this year on the 42nd floor that will feature an open, modern floor plan with seating areas for socializing, a bar and game tables.
David Steinbach with JLL represented the 601W Companies as the exclusive leasing brokers for One Metropolitan Square.
