WeWork is exploring subleasing its global headquarters in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, according to people with knowledge of the matter.

The co-working company is considering options for its West 18th Street location ranging from seeking tenants for specific floors to renting out the entire building, said the people, who requested anonymity because the deliberations are private. The SoftBank-backed company hasn’t made a decision, one of the people said.
