FXFOWLE liked its own building so much it decided to become a tenant. The architecture firm is taking 40,000 square feet on a 15-year lease at the Downtown Brooklyn office tower it’s designing for JEMB Realty.

One Willoughby Square will be completed in 2021, the New York Post reported. A school will occupy 87,000 square feet at the base of the 36-story development.

Signature Partners represented the tenant in the deal.

“The more we thought about it, the more it dawned on us that we are the tenants,” FXFOWLE’s Dan Kaplan told the Post. “At first, it was a creative enterprise — for instance, if we were occupying the space, what would we want? Then, if we were occupying it, transitioned into, this could be a great home for us.” [NYP]Konrad Putzier
