In an effort to beef up its office leasing business, TerraCRG hired veteran broker Chris Havens from Citi Habitats.

Havens has focused on Brooklyn’s office market for much of his career. TerraCRG is looking to capitalize on the office tenants it expects will flood to Brooklyn in the coming year, according to Crain’s.

“There is a big opportunity with all the inventory of office space coming to the market in 2017,” Ofer Cohen, TerraCRG’s CEO, told the publication.

TerraCRG, founded by Ofer Cohen in 2008, specializes in investment sales in Brooklyn. The firm recently began marketing BCB Property Management’s $50 million multifamily portfolio in Williamsburg for sale.

TerraCRG is now looking to start handling leasing for properties that go through its investment arm, according to Crain’s.

Havens — who led the leasing campaign at 1000 Dean Street in Crown Heights — told the publication he will focus on working with smaller tenants. Many believe that Brooklyn — once overshadowed by Manhattan — is becoming its own primary office market, driven by the borough’s growing residential sector. [Crain’s]Miriam Hall
