Digital news startup Mic signs 10.5-year lease at 1 WTC
Digital news startup Mic has signed a 10.5-year lease for the entire 82nd floor of 1 World Trade Center, the Durst Organization confirmed on Monday.
Mic reporter Jack Smith IV tweeted photos from the company's new 36,000-square foot space.
The millennial media company is currently housed in a 15,000-square foot converted warehouse in Hudson Square.
The World Trade Center area has become a magnet for media companies over the last few years. Condé Nast moved to 1 WTC, Time Inc. moved to Brookfield Place, the New York Observer moved to 1 Whitehall St. and Vox Media has announced plans to move from 40th St., near Bryant Park, to 85 Broad St.
With the addition of Mic, 1 WTC will have a 67 percent occupancy rate.
