WeWork has filed a lawsuit against multiple landlords in downtown Boston and Washington D.C. The coworking firm is suing to recoup $18.7 million in reimbursements for unpaid renovations and tenant improvement bills.
WeWork is seeking $11.9 million in unpaid renovation costs in Suffolk County that it claims is entitled to from landlord Rockpoint Group. Additionally, the operator sued an affiliate for The Meridian Group for $6.8 million over tenant improvement allowances.
Currently, WeWork takes up three floors at the Rockpoint-owned 100 Summer Street in Boston. The company claims that its original lease with EQ Office allowed it to be entitled to $14 million in construction, of which it spent $13.3 million.
WeWork’s lawsuit against Meridian affiliate TMG 800 K Street LLC alleges that the $6.8 million in tenant improvement allowances it is seeking to be reimbursed was part of its 66,500 square foot lease at the Washington D.C. location.
