Williamsburg’s Kent Avenue is set to get a massive new office building. Heritage Equities filed plans today with the city’s Department of Buildings to construct a 400,000-square-foot property on an 80,000-square-foot full-block site at 19 Kent Avenue, at North 14th street.
If all goes as planned, the building will be Brooklyn’s first spec office building since before World War II, according to Brownstoner. Bounded by North 13th, North 14th, Kent and Wythe streets, the building will be neighbors with the Wythe Hotel and hip event space and bowling alley Brooklyn Bowl. The office will, unsurprisingly, target creative and technology tenants.
The property is being marketed by aptsandlofts.com’s Chris Havens, who told Brownstoner that renderings and other details would be available early next year. [Brownstoner] – Hiten Samtani
