The rooftop at 45 Main Street

Like Two Trees’ other commercial locations in DUMBO, 45 Main has become a spot for cutting edge firms in the creative/tech industry. Building amenities — which include shared conference rooms on every floor and state-of-the-art rooftop decks, along with flexible lease terms, customizable pre-builds and penalty-free expansions — cater to the mix of forward-thinking startups and established brands that populate Two Trees’ offices.

“The most important factors in a space are openness and comfort,” says Stearn. Also topping his list of priorities were private conference rooms for client presentations and common areas where he and his team could unwind and refuel.

Two Trees worked closely with Stearn’s team to bring the brand’s vision to life. When presented with their desired layout, which included island workstations, Two Trees suggested the Ethernet be piped and powered from the ceiling as opposed to running it along the floor. The landlord also took care of the tenant’s drywall, rerouted the ventilation, moved the lighting, and installed a wet pantry and coat closet. (more…)

An inspiring company needs an inspiring office. For holistic wellness media company MindBodyGreen, a run-of-the-mill office would not do.

They found a promising loft space with soaring ceilings and Manhattan Bridge views from Two Trees, which offers a variety of spaces in Dumbo, flexible leasing terms, and competitive pricing to accommodate creative companies like MindBodyGreen. (more…)

Dumbo Artists Workspaces

Dumbo has come a long way from its 1970s days, when its industrial lofts attracted artists looking for more space and cheaper rents. Now the neighborhood is a hub for tech and design firms, and its luxe apartments with their views of the New York skyline command rents that make much of Manhattan look inexpensive by comparison.

Rising rents have a tendency to send artists scurrying, and Two Trees Management, the real estate firm that helped make the neighborhood what it is today, knows that better than anyone. Two Trees was there at the beginning, and with their Cultural Space Subsidy Program, they are determined to make sure art still has a home in Dumbo.

According to an article in the Observer, Two Trees has selected nine artists to receive subsidy grants for below-market workspaces in Dumbo, as well as the pioneering New York nonprofit arts organization Art in General.   (more…)

A recent post here on DumboNYC offered an inside look at 60 Water — the new rental building in the heart of Dumbo — including photographs of the views from the apartments’ floor-to-ceiling windows and new renderings of its stunning rooftop garden.

One of the main selling points of living in 60 Water, however, is its prime Dumbo location. Visitors and residents alike will find treasures in all directions, and among the most notable of these is Brooklyn Bridge Park, an expansive 85-acre waterfront oasis that offers an incredible array of activities, entertainment, and green spaces that is practically in 60 Water’s back yard.

60 Water, in the heart of Dumbo, offers NYC's best views from its studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments.

Brooklyn Bridge Park covers the 1.3 mile stretch from Atlantic Avenue in the south to Jay Street in the north. Back in the 17th century, the area served as the base for the ferries that provided access and trade to the community, and warehouses and stores quickly sprang up in the industrial boom that followed. Since the 1950s, however, freight traffic to the Brooklyn waterfront dwindled, and the piers and warehouses were abandoned for years.

In 1985, the idea for the park was born, and with a lot of nurturing and fundraising and support its construction started in 2008. Today it is a thriving and vibrant destination filled with lawns and sports fields, playgrounds and music venues, concessionaires and events, and new plans and projects in the works all the time.

With so much to offer and explore, the park is a world unto itself. Here are some of its not-to-miss highlights. (more…)

If you’re up high enough, one of the best things about Dumbo is the view.

The panorama includes the East River, the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, the Staten Island Ferry, and the Statue of Liberty. Apartments that look out on to this vista are the most sought-after in the neighborhood.
