The New York Observer reported today that Two Trees Management, the real estate firm owned by David Walentas will be opening their first sales office:
Big news in Dumbo! David Walentas’ Two Trees Management will soon open Two Trees Real Estate, the firm’s first general real-estate sales office. The office, set to open by early May, will broker listings in Two Trees’ developments as well as in other projects.
“There were so many calls to the main Two Trees office for listings in Dumbo that this just made sense,” Asher Abehsera, Two Trees’ vice president of sales and marketing, told The Real Estate on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr. Walentas’ firm basically created Dumbo whole-cloth as a residential neighborhood starting in the 1990’s, and he has expanded his development into other parts of Brooklyn, perhaps most notably with 110 Livingston in the borough’s central area.
I talked to the folks at Two Trees who confirmed that the new office will open in the former Overpass Flowers location on 65 Washington Street. Since Overpass Flowers closed as first reported by fellow Dumbo blogger Brooklyn Enthusiast in January 2007, Two Trees is looking for a “high end florist” for the neighborhood. Any upscale florists Dumbo should bring in?
