25 Kent

25 Kent is bringing Silicon Valley to Williamsburg.

Entrepreneurs chart their own path. It’s time their offices did the same. That’s why this office building isn’t an office building. It is a campus designed for New York City’s tech scene. Large floor plates are designed for established companies like Google and Uber while the lower floors’ smaller layouts serve startups, maker studios, and creative businesses. A public avenue runs through the building to create a new public space. Red brick and factory-sized windows nod to the historic architectural character of Williamsburg.

When complete, 25 Kent will be the first speculative office property in Williamsburg in 50 years and cover a full city block.
