New space in Manhattan will house over 80 employees
NEW YORK, Dec. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Wix.com Ltd. (NASDAQ: WIX) is proud to announce the opening of a new expanded office space in New York City.
The new office, located at TF Cornerstone's 100 Gansevoort in New York City's Meatpacking District across from the Whitney Museum, encompasses over 15,000 square feet, with space for over 80 employees and an event space. The new location will house sales team members and agency relations for the Wix Partner Program, product and marketing teams, as well as HR and operations staff. Additionally, the Wix Design Playground will hold its annual design academy at this address as well as hosting classes, workshops, lectures and partner events.
Wix, a global leader in website creation design and cloud development, first moved to New York City in 2010 when it opened the Wix Lounge, a free coworking space for users. Wix cemented its US presence when it went public on the NASDAQ in 2013.
"Wix has been in New York for over a decade and this marquee location represents the evolution of our company, employees and the Wix brand," said Joe Pollaro, General Manager of US Operations. "We are able to have a showstopper space in an exciting neighborhood with access to some of the best creative and technology talent in the world. Also, the recent launch and early success of the Wix Partner Program is driving the need to expand and this is the perfect place for us. Wix is growing locally and around the world, and we are delighted to have a beautiful new home in New York City."
100 Gansevoort sits at the base of TF Cornerstone's 95 Horatio building, a 318-unit residential complex. TF Cornerstone renovated the ground floors along Washington and Gansevoort Streets to create premier retail spaces with glass storefronts, high ceilings, authentic Meatpacking District elements such as original exposed brick, and a terrace facing the Hudson River.
"We're pleased to welcome Wix to the Meatpacking District, the latest international brand to join this dynamic community," said Steve Gonzalez, Director of Retail Leasing at TF Cornerstone. "Gansevoort Street has had an incredible resurgence and Wix will be joining an already incredible tenant roster at the property such as Intermix, Christian Louboutin, Hanro and By Killian."
