Slate is ditching the West Village for Brooklyn. The web magazine signed a 21,000 square-foot lease at the Forest City Ratner’s Metrotech Center on Downtown Brooklyn, where it will move in April along with Slate Group’s podcasting arm Panoply.

Slate currently shares a space with the Washington Post at Brickman Associates’ 95 Morton Street in Hudson Square. Slate and the Post were once part of the same company, but when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos bought the Post in 2013, Slate didn’t change hands with it.

“We’re following our staff — New York’s creative class no longer lives in Manhattan,” a Slate spokesperson told Advertising Age.

Brooklyn is home to only a handful of media companies. Vice Media sits at 90 North 11th Street in Williamsburg, while Time Inc. recently announced it’s moving some of its employees to Sunset Park’s Industry City development. [Advertising Age]Konrad Putzier
