CBRE Will Lease Up Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Top Floors

The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) has signed a leasing agency agreement with a CBRE team led by EVP Brad Gerla for the Yard’s large-block creative office spaces on the top floors of Building 303 and Building 77. The team will handle marketing and leasing of 142,000 square feet, including Building 303’s ninth floor along with Building 77’s 15th and 16th floors.
“The Yard has established itself as a leading destination for cutting-edge companies attracted to our ecosystem of creative and advanced manufacturing tenants – and this momentum has continued despite the pandemic,” said Johanna Greenbaum, chief development officer at BNYDC.
Gerla said, “The top floors of buildings 303 and 77 offer exactly what the city’s creative workforce will want after the pandemic: wide-open floor plates, plentiful outdoor amenity space with amazing views, a collaborative campus environment and a location near where so much of the talent lives.”
