A design firm has signed the biggest office lease in Brooklyn since January, taking the top two floors of Rudin and Boston Properties‘ ship-inspired Dock 72 building in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Huge inked a 12-year deal for 71K SF at the 16-story building, the landlords announced Monday. Huge is the biggest deal at the 670K SF property, which opened in 2019, since WeWork signed a 220K SF pre-lease to kick-start construction.
Marketing and design firm Huge is setting sail for new, slightly smaller offices at Dock 72 next year, in a huge win for the Brooklyn Navy Yard building.
Huge inked a 12-year deal to relocate from about 80,000 square feet at 45 Main Street in Dumbo to 71,000 square feet across the entire 15th and part of the 14th floor of Dock 72, the New York Post first reported. Huge will become the third tenant to join the Rudin Management Company and Boston Properties building since it opened in 2019.
The design-and-innovation firm Huge signed a two-floors lease at Dock 72 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard — and it’s huge for Boston Properties and Rudin, the joint-venture developers of the ship-shaped waterfront building that shouts “cool factor.”
The deal for 71,000 square feet on Dock 72’s top two office floors marks a welcome advance for the project, where the pandemic slowed leasing efforts after an earlier WeWork deal for 220,000 square feet. After that, Boston and Rudin drew blanks in the tough market until digital culinary hub Food52 inked a 42,000-square-foot lease last October. The uniquely-designed waterfront building has 675,000 square feet.
Food52, an online cooking and home brand, is moving its New York offices from Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood to Dock 72 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The company will occupy the full 13th floor, about 42,000 square feet of space, at the 16-story property, which was the first major ground-up commercial office building to be constructed in Brooklyn in over a decade when it opened in October 2019.
Food52, an online cooking and home website, plans to consolidate its Chelsea offices at Dock 72 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard — the building’s second tenant and first since it opened in 2019.
The culinary brand snagged a 12-year lease for 42,000 square feet spanning the entire 13th floor in Rudin Management Company and Boston Properties’ 675,000-square-foot glass office building, the New York Post first reported. The firm plans to relocate from Manhattan during the second half of 2022, according to Rudin.
