Landlord Pink Stone Capital has filed a lawsuit against Breather to remove the flexible office firm from a SoHo building.
This news follows soon after Breather revealed it would be closing down all of its locations as part of its efforts to become an online flexible office platform.
The lawsuit filed this week claims that Breather owes $79,000 in unpaid rent at its two-floor, 12,777 square foot location on 54 Thompson Street since July.
Pink Stone terminated the lease this month, requesting that Breather leave on the first of the month, but it has still yet to leave.
“We were in negotiations a little over a month ago over payment of money, they ended now, and no one is calling us back,” said Adam Leitman Bailey, an attorney representing Pink Stone.
Although Breather has announced plans to close all of its locations, Letiman Bailey said he anticipates the company will not give up the location easily.
“They put a lot of money into this location very recently,” said Letiman Bailey. “It does not make any business sense to walk away from it.”
