All Along the Watchtower: Witnesses’ former Bible-printing plants are morphing into techie-friendly complex
'DUMBO Heights' Will Have a Beer Hall and Be Bike-Friendly, Developer Jared Kushner Promises
Tech tenants and non-techies alike are lining up for office space down the hill in DUMBO – in former Bible-printing plants that belonged until recently to the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
“Four hundred thousand square feet is pretty much spoken for,” Jared Kushner, who is remaking the buildings he bought with investment partners for $375 million last year into a hip office campus called DUMBO Heights, said at the Brooklyn Historical Society Tuesday.
Top executives at numerous companies – the folks in the “C-suites,” Kushner said – live in Brooklyn Heights and want to work near their homes.
