Green Coworking Spaces in Brooklyn and Queens
Although each of these locations shares similar office features such as bright and open spaces, each has a unique feel and focus. For example, the Williamsburg location at 240 Kent Avenue just one block from the East River, features retail tenants that are mainly “green” or health related ventures. Much like the Chelsea Market in Manhattan, this location has ground floor tenants selling clothing, food, and vintage items. The tenants upstairs vary very much as well. However, there is still a communal feeling among the profusion of office uses in the building. Fashion, technology, and health industries take up spaces on floors containing conference rooms, lounge areas, and full open pantry, all while maintaining a collaborative feel.
The four floors at 155 Water Street in Dumbo hosts tenants such as web designers, lawyers, and movie producers. The entire space is powered by wind energy, energy efficient lighting, and recycled office furniture. At 147 Prince Street in Downtown Brooklyn there is a fashionable and creative feel to the space. It has a beautiful interior with large exterior windows, and floor to ceiling interior green tinted office and conference windows. What’s most notable about this location is its convenient proximity to several subway lines into and out of other New York City Boroughs.
