WeWork Negotiates Rent Disputes in North Texas After Bankruptcy in a Post-Pandemic World


Commercial real estate is still adjusting to a post-pandemic world. Coworking giant WeWork finds itself grappling with its bankruptcy and trying to negotiate rent disputes in North Texas. 

Its first location in the area was established at 1920 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas in 2017. 

Rental Demands and Disputes 

Parkview at McKinney’s ownership, represented by Invesco Advisers Inc., withdrew its motion demanding hundreds of thousands of dollars in rent from WeWork.

This move came after reaching a “stipulation” with the coworking firm, indicating ongoing negotiations to resolve the matter amicably.

Similarly, the ownership consortium of Williams Square in Irving, comprising Apollo Global, Vanderbilt Office Properties, and Hillwood Urban, had filed a motion seeking unpaid rent in late January.

The motion cited the landlord’s necessity to access a line of credit due to WeWork’s outstanding dues.

However, like Parkview at McKinney, Williams Square’s ownership also reached a stipulation with WeWork, hinting at proactive engagement to settle disputes.
