When we designed the conversion of 1000 Dean into offices, we assumed that most of the demand would be from smaller tenants and indeed that has been the case to date. But there are three large units in the building, none of which have been formally listed yet, that we wanted to tell Brownstoner readers about before distributing more widely.
As some of you may recall, we signed a lease early on with 3rd Ward to house the food incubator that the Bushwick-based company was planning to build. Well, we all know how that story ended. We’d carved out over 40,000 square feet of space in the main building of 1000 Dean for 3rd Ward — about 28,000 on the ground floor and another 18,000 or so on the second floor. Both spaces are now available, separately or together. We’re hoping that the second floor space, which takes up the eastern side of the building, will be turned into a coworking office. Both spaces have 14 foot ceilings, lots of windows and beautiful round columns.
The other biggie is the former one-story loading dock just to the west of the main building on Dean Street. It has has very high ceilings and currently sports three large garage door openings and curb cuts. It’s got about 8,000 square feet of space and connects at the back to the main hallway of 1000 Dean, which in turn connects to Berg’n, the Brooklyn Flea-run beer hall and food court that fronts on Bergen Street. It would be great for a theater, a food production use or a company that wanted to be able to engage the public at street level for any reason.
All three spaces are asking for rents in the high $20s per square foot per year. Interested parties should contact Chris Havens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
