"Immediately upon closing, these transactions are expected to significantly strengthen HBC's balance sheet, enhance our liquidity, and advance our core strategies by monetizing the Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue building and increasing the productivity of key locations, which taken together, is expected to enable us to drive ongoing value creation". The deal will see the space transformed after the 2018 holiday season to become WeWork's NY headquarters. The retail space will be reduced from 650,000 sq. ft.to 150,000 sq. ft. and will be confined to the bottom floors.

"We believe the partnership with WeWork to redefine retailing and reactivate less productive space throughout the company's global real estate portfolio will put us in a leadership position and add significant value to HBC shareholders", M. Steven Langman, managing director of Rhône, said. "The trend of urbanization is something we must all recognize and understand", he said.
