Brooklyn Tech Triangle, A New Music Video and A Newer Idea

We are all keeping our eye on the public and private initiatives surrounding the Brooklyn Tech Triangle.

President of Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, Tucker Reed, has in essence, proposed a reverse eminent domain of City owned buildings in Downtown Brooklyn to fuel the area’s need for startup real estate:

“With a footprint of over 1.2 million square feet of commercial space surrounding Cadman Plaza, municipal-owned and occupied buildings such as the Brooklyn Municipal building at 210 Joralemon Street, 65 Court Street and the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse at 271 Cadman Plaza East could be repurposed to create a new urban campus for entrepreneurs and start-ups as well as new retail opportunities to activate the ground level experience. By reactivating these assets, government could avoid having to spend additional money to renovate these aging facilities, while modernizing its footprint in newer, more efficient buildings built by partners in the private sector.”
