NEW YORK, November 26, 2018 – Colliers International Group Inc., the fastest-growing publicly-listed global real estate services and investment management company, announced today that it had been appointed to lead leasing efforts for WeWork at the highly-anticipated Dock 72 project in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The venture makes Colliers the exclusive leasing agent for WeWork’s six floors, totaling 220,000 square feet, in the 16-story, 675,000-square-foot office building currently under construction. The space, called WeWork at Dock 72, is being designed for entrepreneurs and creators who are incubating the next generation of leading technology, media, food and modern manufacturing companies.
Colliers has a growing reputation in New York as an innovative and entrepreneurial organization with the ability to develop creative strategies that successfully and quickly connect tenants with the spaces they need.
“We are very pleased to have been selected as the exclusive representative for WeWork at Dock 72. This adds to our growing agency practice in the New York and Tri-State Region,” said Ted Koltis, President of the Agency & Consulting Practice, Eastern Region for Colliers. “WeWork is obviously an incredibly innovative company that’s reshaping commercial office space for the next generation.”
Dock 72, developed by Boston Properties and Rudin Development, is one of the largest ground-up New York City developments outside of Manhattan in decades. The property features 360-degree waterfront views of Manhattan and Brooklyn, 35,000 square feet of common indoor amenities, 10,000 square feet of outdoor amenities, 18,000 square feet of private terraces and a 15,000-square-foot wellness center.
Free, WiFi-equipped shuttle service with a stop right outside of Dock 72 runs every ten minutes between the Navy Yard and major subway lines in DUMBO and Downtown Brooklyn, all less than a mile away from the building. Buses, Citi Bike, Car2Go and dedicated building parking all provide alternative options for easy commuting. A new East River Ferry stop at the Navy Yard is scheduled to open early next year. The building is tentatively scheduled to open to tenants in the first half of 2019.
Featuring distinctive architecture and cutting-edge design, the building is meant to spark creativity and promote productivity. With two outdoor terraces, multiple private offices, interconnecting staircases, open conference rooms and world-class amenities, companies of any size will find a custom space to fit their needs in WeWork at Dock72. The space features soaring 14-foot ceilings, unparalleled views and abundant natural light throughout.
