It’s winter. But Williamsburg, Brooklyn is still sizzling.


The red-hot New York City cultural district is lining up more jobs for the local hipsters, courtesy of 25 Kent, Williamsburg’s newest office and manufacturing building. It’s billed as Brooklyn’s first “ground-up, speculative commercial building” in 40 years. The latest proof of Williamsburg’s gentrified revival, the imposing glass-and-brick warehouse structure adds an architectural landmark to the neighborhood as well as prominent tenants like Kith, Refinery29’s 29 Rooms, and large-scale markets Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea.
