Over 70% of Prebuilts Leased at One World Trade Center

The Durst Organization and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey today announced Aaptiv Inc., a leading digital health company, has signed a five-year lease for a 16,962 square foot prebuilt on the 49th floor of One World Trade Center. Aaptiv is moving from their offices in NoMad. The prebuilt program at One World Trade Center commenced in 2014 and is currently 72% leased.

“We are excited to have Aaptiv join the One World Trade Center community,” said Jonathan (Jody) Durst, President of The Durst Organization. “Our prebuilt program has been a tremendous success over the past four years. We can offer tenants premium offices in a short period of time and flexible lease terms, which is requisite for rapidly growing companies.”

“We are excited to reach this next phase of growth. Only two years ago, Aaptiv did not have an office, so this is a proud milestone for our company,” said Ethan Agarwal, founder and CEO of Aaptiv. “Aaptiv is about bringing a world class wellness experience to our hundreds of thousands of members, and this additional office space will allow our team to continue to grow and execute more effectively.”

Aaptiv was represented by Executive Vice President Jason Schwartzenberg and Associate Will Stark of JLL. The landlord was represented by Senior Managing Director Eric Engelhardt of The Durst Organization and Tara Stacom, Justin Royce, Peter Trivelas, Barry Zeller and Connor B. Daugstrup of Cushman & Wakefield.
