Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors is growing its footprint at LIVWRK’s office conversion at 160 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook.

The company inked a deal for an additional 6,500 square feet above its existing Brooklyn showroom, according to a source close to the deal. The additional square footage will be used as office space.

About a year ago, Tesla signed a lease for a 40,000-square-foot showroom and service center on the ground floor of the property, marking its first entry into Brooklyn.

The converted building was formerly home to the Golten Marine Terminal. LIVWRK purchased it for $21.5 million in 2014. Asking rents at the property are in the mid-$40s per square foot, sources said.

A representative for LIVWRK declined to confirm the deal, and a spokesperson for Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Tesla has been gobbling up space left and right as it expands its network of charging stations across the New York area. In September, it inked a lease with Romanoff Equities and Property Group Partners for 7,800 square feet at 860 Washington Street in the Meatpacking District.
