WeWork Space Services is looking for writers.

WeWork recently launched a new initiative to go after mid-sized tenants, and on Wednesday the co-working company shared an update on its progress.

The company said it has signed leases for six spaces in Manhattan that it plans to use for the new product, dubbed “HQ by WeWork”: at490 Broadway, 149 Fifth Avenue, 115 East 23rd Street, 38 West 21st Street, 8 West 40th Street and 13-15 West 27th Street.

A WeWork spokesperson said the company has agreed to lease 440,000 square feet of space for HQ by WeWork and is in “final stage negotiations” for another 550,000 square feet.

“We couldn’t get the privacy of our own space [in a WeWork], so we started having that conversation about this new offering,” Reich told reporters. When his 25-person company moved into its new Flatiron office in April, “it was turnkey—everything from Voice Over IP, the TV, even little things like Bose speakers so we can play music throughout the day. If it weren’t for WeWork doing it, I would have had to find someone to do it, and then I become an office manager, which is the opposite of how I want to spend my time.”
