The Citi Bike bike share program is moving its headquarters to Sunset Park, The Wall Street Journal reported. Citi Bike has leased a 39,200-square-foot space at 53rd Street and Third Avenue for about $20 a square foot. The three-story space will have room for bike repair, a call center, and parking for vans to transport bikes. Initially the bike share program thought it would find space in Soho, but Sunset Park offered industrial space and lower prices.
