Brand New Office Space Construction in The Heart of Brooklyn
Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last fifteen years or so, you have likely witnessed or heard about the massive revitalization of the Williamsburg waterfront. From the construction of luxury condominiums, to the booming restaurant and social scene along the strip of excessive destination-worthy hotels and bars, this once gritty haven for artists and creatives has been completely transformed to lure high earning city-folks for their growing families and wallets. Though the transformation wasn’t sudden, one thing that has historically lacked in this primarily residential and tourist ridden neighborhood is office product. However, within the last couple of years, several notable developments have commanded a tremendous amount of attention from both local and household named tenants. According to Jeremiah Kane of Rubenstein Partners, the lead developer of 25 Kent Avenue, the newest premier office building in the borough, “In a lot of ways, Williamsburg and Greenpoint were ‘live’ and ‘play’ neighborhoods and ‘work’ was missing.” With their completion and unveiling of 25 Kent, an eight story, 500,000 square foot office tower, they are trying to offer a solution to the way people work in this northwestern Brooklyn hotbed.

At first glance, 25 Kent seems like a welcomed-addition to the Williamsburg streetscape. Clad in glass and brick, it doesn’t look unworldly among its primarily industrial neighbors. At the same time, the innovation and ingenuity is evident in rather inconspicuous and inoffensive ways. The building looks like it is MEANT to be there, not an afterthought. As a matter of fact, the structure clearly pays homage to the past and present manufacturing streetscape with red brick masonry and blackened steel- as if you were expecting Carnegie Steel Company to be housed there. However, once entering the asset from the main lobby, it is clear that 25 Kent is a world-class office tower with all of the bells and whistles of brand new construction.
