481 Van Brunt St. 8A 8000 sf Commercial Flex
$ 26 SF/YR - available
481 Van Brunt St. aka 493-497 Van Brunt St., Brooklyn
481 Van Brunt St. unit 8-A is a rare availability in our Beard and Robinson Stores property with immense potential for an incoming business with a multifaceted operation. Located on Red Hook’s main commercial strip, unit 8A is adjacent to BWAC (Brooklyn Waterfront Artist’s Coalition), Apotheke Soap & Candles, German Kitchen Center, Token NYC, and many other creative businesses that have made the Red Hook Waterfront their home. In ground floor units at this property, businesses can manufacture their goods for wholesale distribution and integrate retail use, offering their products directly to consumers.
Across the street, Food Bazaar is a 45k sq. ft. supermarket bringing in an ever-increasing amount of visitors and daily shoppers. In warmer months foot traffic is substantial, with visitors patronizing local businesses like Widow Jane Distillery and Red Hook Winery for tastings, and a variety of restaurants that have earned city-wide acclaim. Unit 8A is also just a few steps away from our waterfront walkway, boat marina, and Pier 44 Waterfront Garden, all great for taking respite from the stress of a workday.
Often exaggerated as a significant issue, transportation to and from Red Hook is easier than you’d think. Your business’ employees have many options whether it be to come to work via NYC Ferry, bus, biking down the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, or by car. While the subway isn’t the best way to travel here, it is within walking distance. On the other hand, in terms of the distribution of products, 481 Van Brunt St. is close to the BQE, Battery Tunnel, and other major NYC thoroughfares, so a business can quickly receive and distribute goods daily.
Jeremiah P. Robinson and William Beard completed the Beard and Robinson Stores in 1872 during a surge in dockside warehousing after the Civil War.
Today these former warehouses, also known as “stores,” are bustling with manufacturing, retail, and creative businesses taking full advantage of the property’s historical value and inherent qualities supporting merchants of all types.
Brooklyn’s Red Hook Waterfront is truly a peaceful place to work, with many of our tenants continuing their occupancy for 20 or more years. We value long-term relationships and are more interested in cultivating a vibrant business community rather than demanding the highest price for our spaces.
Call us at 7186240160 or email us at email@example.com if you are interested in this space. Please note that our available units are for long-term tenancies only.
