WNET is looking to leave its home of 10 years at 450 W. 33rd Street in Manhattan, according to a real estate report in the New York Observer. The station has hired Studley, a tenant advisory service, to scout out a 100,000-square-foot spot. It now leases about 200,000 square feet on one and half vast floors in the building near Penn Station. “Updating the existing framework would be very expensive,” WNET spokesperson Kellie Specter told Current. Specter said the station is exploring the option of moving, “as a lot of companies are doing right now,” for cost savings. It might also stay put and lease out half of its space. WNET’s lease expires in 2018.
