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 is designed as an urban campus that brings established tech leaders together with innovative startups in a collaborative workspace. Each floor of the building is designed to be adapted to future tenants’ specific needs. Smaller companies can occupy subdivisions of a floor and benefit from cross-pollination, while larger, established companies can occupy a full floor to create a cohesive work environment.

A pedestrian avenue runs through the building, doubling frontage, opening the building to its context, and creating a lively social core. 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.
