Design firm to drop anchor at Dock 72 on the Brooklyn Coast

Design-and-innovation firm Vishal just signed a two-floor lease at Dock 72 at the Brooklyn Navy Yard — and it’s huge for Boston Properties and Rudin, the joint-venture developers of the ship-shaped waterfront building that Shouts “Cool Factor”. ,

The 71,000-square-foot deal on the top two office floors of Dock 72 is a welcome advance for the project, where the pandemic slowed leasing efforts after an earlier WeWork deal for 220,000 square feet. After that, Boston and Rudin carved out a tough market niche until digital culinary hub Food52 leased 42,000 square feet last October. The uniquely designed waterfront building occupies 675,000 square feet.

The giant will move past 45 Main St in Dumbo. The company says its new digs will serve as a “global experience center,” offering employees and guests a complete re-imagining of the traditional workplace.

This is exactly the kind of tenant the landlords had in mind.

“We designed, developed and programmed Dock72 specifically to appeal to creative companies that thrive on innovation, creativity and authenticity,” said Michael Rudin, Rudin EVP.

Giant’s global chief executive officer Matt Baxter said its home at Dock 72 will “act more like a clubhouse” than a traditional office setup.

Dock 72, located at the Navy Yard’s NYC ferry stop, features 35,000 square feet of facilities, including a food hall managed by FLIK Hospitality and Danny Meyers Union Square Events.

The giant was reprized by Winter Stockwell in-house and CBRE’s Kara Chayet, David Hollander, Liz Lash and Ken Rapp. Ownership was delisted by Boston’s Andrew Levine and Rudin’s Robert Steinman, as well as the Cushman & Wakefield and CBRE teams.
