StubHub, one of the world’s largest online destinations for ticketed live events, will establish its new headquarters at 3 World Trade Center in Manhattan’s Financial District. In an effort to consolidate its commercial footprint, the company will close multiple locations in Midtown, and instead occupy 44,000 square feet of 3 World Trade Center’s 59th floor.
Designed by Rogers Stirk Harbor + Partners, 3 World Trade Center was completed in 2018 and now features asking rents around $125 per square foot, according to a statement from Silverstein Properties which represented the landlord in lease negotiations with StubHub.
“The World Trade Center is an ideal home for innovative technology companies like StubHub that want new space with great amenities close to where their workforce lives,” said Jeremy Moss, EVP of leasing at Silverstein Properties. “The WTC campus is 95 percent leased, and midweek occupancy is up to 70 percent at 3 WTC.”
Tenants at 3 World Trade Center now have access to INSPIRE, a new hospitality company from Silverstein Properties that offers premier social and wellness programming ranging from yoga classes, happy hours, and culinary experiences, to lectures and massage sessions. The building also features a 5,000-square-foot terrace and lounge on the 17th floor with panoramic views of Lower Manhattan.

What’s the ‘latest’ on 2 WTC ?
Silverstein retains the right, but not the responsibility to develop the site.
My unfortunate hunch is 2 WTC never gets built. It should have been done instead of 4 WTC – the shortest of the Trade Center towers, back when 1 WTC was being built 14-15 years ago. That way, we would have had both 1 and 2 WTC towers to approximate the look of the original WTC twins. Instead, today we have a “missing tooth” between 1 and 3, 4 WTC that may never be filled with the 1,300+ tower that was planned.
IMHO… One WTC looks better without a bulky tower alongside. It’s a single focal point in lower Manhattan and should remain that way. Now, if 2 WTC was planed as a twin without a spire, I’d be all for it.
Hopefully they go back to the original “diamond” 2 WTC & get it built. Good to hear Stubhub is downtown.
