Philadelphia Inquirer Shrinks Its Office Space by Two-Thirds: None of the Offices Will Be Assigned to Individuals

From a Philadelphia Inquirer story by Jacob Adelman:

The Philadelphia Inquirer is negotiating a lease at the midcentury landmark at 100 S. Independence Mall West for a move that would shrink the newspaper’s office footprint by almost two thirds.

The Inquirer will occupy 34,000 square feet on the sixth floor of the property, about 60% less space than it currently leases at the former Strawbridge’s building at 801 Market St., Inquirer vice president Lydia Hamilton said.

Most Inquirer staff have been working from home since the early days of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020. The company employs 370.
