JEMB Adds Three Tenants to Roster at 1 Willoughby Office Tower
JEMB Realty Corporation has secured three new leases at 1 Willoughby Square, Brooklyn’s tallest office building. The new tenants will join FXCollaborative, the building’s architect and anchor tenant. The new leases bring 1 Willoughby Square to nearly 50% leased, and include the following:
Propel, a fintech company, will relocate from its existing Brooklyn offices, taking 10,000 square feet.
Walnut Ridge,a family office with nonprofit and philanthropic initiatives, will occupy 5,000 square feet.
Ms. Foundation for Women, founded by Gloria Steinem, will occupy 11,000 square feet. The tenant was represented by Lindsay Ornstein and Stephen Powers, co-founders of OPEN Impact Real Estate, and Casey Noel, VP of Transwestern Real Estate Services.
“The activity at 1 Willoughby Square highlights a broader trend of Brooklyn-based companies looking to elevate their workspaces to encourage employees to collaborate in-office,” said vice chairman Neil King of CBRE, who represented ownership.
