Rubenstein Partners has rolled out HqO, an end-to-end tenant experience operating system for office buildings, at 25 Kent, its 500,000-square-foot office and manufacturing building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Through HqO, 25 Kent will give tenants access to building programming, amenities, and special retail and food offerings from the surrounding neighborhood. 

“As companies and their employees are looking for more than just a workplace, but a sense of communityproviding access to programming within the building, such as wellness programs and collaboration spaces, is critical among many others,” said Kayte Singleton, associate property manager at Rubenstein Partners. The HqO platform offers a heightened experience for tenants and demonstrates how landlords can actively mold the future of the office.” 

The white labeled building app will offer tenants exclusive access to on-site food and beverage offerings, delivery services through HqO’s Marketplace partners like Avo and on-site fitness classes.
