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…)

If you’re in search of an evening to take in some cool art displays, check out the Dumbo First Thursday Gallery Walk.
Dumbo’s art galleries are open to the public later than usual on the first Thursday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. The galleries have special events and receptions for participants on the walk, and area restaurants and bars offer deals and discounts.
The event allows Dumbo to show off its arts community, an important part of Dumbo for decades. Artists began to move in after the deindustrialization of the area in the 1970s, and even after the neighborhood’s transformation in the past decade or so, many still continue to work or live in the area.
