When GFP Real Estate acquired this century-old warehouse building, they were making a bet that creative companies would want office space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Over the past 20 years, Williamsburg has transformed from an industrial and immigrant area to one of the city’s hottest destinations for young people, with apartments, trendy boutiques, restaurants, music and art, but no office buildings until recently.
GFP completely transformed the industrial building into a stateof-the-art workplace for tech-savvy tenants. It offers full-floor boutique lofts that enable flexibility and efficiency while retaining the architecture’s historic character. GFP selected View Smart Glass to maximize daylight in the space, which has relatively small window openings but high ceilings. It will also save energy and improve the comfort and wellness of occupants.
