Newmark is pleased to announce that it has been retained as the exclusive leasing agent for the remaining 90,000 square feet of office space at four properties located at Dumbo Heights, a 1.2-million-square-foot office and retail complex in Dumbo Heights, Brooklyn. The properties, owned by Kushner Companies, RFR Realty and LIVWRK, are located on the waterfront in the heart of the Brooklyn “tech triangle.”
Totaling 1.2 million square feet, Dumbo Heights is an ideal corporate location, and fits perfectly into the ethos of the Dumbo Heights neighborhood itself. The property has quickly attracted major companies, such as WeWork, 2U, Etsy, Prolific Interactive, and Frog Design. Offering excellent access to several major transportation corridors, the campus is steps away from the Brooklyn F stop, which directly links to Midtown South, and is centrally located near the A/C and 2/3 trains. Conveniently, the complex is also near bus stations and includes bike-friendly lanes across the Brooklyn Bridge to and from Manhattan. In addition to transportation, Dumbo Heights is a hub for fresh eateries, including Bluestone Lane, Mulberry & Vine, Untamed Sandwiches, Taco Dumbo, and Randolph Beer. Other amenities include Yoga Vida and Shadowbox.
77 Sands, the second of the five buildings comprising the Dumbo Heights campus, stands 12 stories tall and features a typical floor size of 18,800 rentable square feet. A block of space totaling 75,000 RSF offers companies the chance to join a collaborative campus of innovating, cutting edge companies. One of the few remaining blocks of space in Dumbo Heights, 77 Sands offers extra-height ceilings (10’0”-15’6”), excellent natural light with four sides of windows, and a brand-new roof deck overlooking the incredible Brooklyn campus.
Slightly smaller in size, 55 Prospect Street offers pre-builts that range from 1,000 to 5,000 square feet. Each tenant leasing these spaces has access to shared conference rooms, newly designed pantries, and a common roof deck, which overlooks the Brooklyn Bridge into Lower Manhattan. The spaces are ideal for growing firms that are looking for a high-end space but wish to avoid long-term leases and expensive build-out costs.
“It is clear why Dumbo Heights is rapidly becoming the area’s most sought-after destination,” said Newmark Managing Director Whitten Morris who will head the leasing efforts with his colleague, Associate Joseph Sipala. “This campus offers exciting conveniences with its office, retail and lifestyle amenities while offering a collaborative work environment that cutting-edge companies are seeking. With the added benefit of its modern amenities, any tenant would thrive in this environment.”
