Publishing industry grows in Brooklyn.
"We are delighted that these publishers have found a niche here in DUMBO, which is a coveted and vibrant community--a mecca for intellectual innovation," said Louise Ehrmann, Esq., associate director of leasing with Two Trees. "These firms, along with publishing companies such as Waterfront Media, The L Magazine and Surface Publications, are making DUMBO a strong location for alternative publishing companies."
All of these companies have taken space at 55 Washington St., which boasts 13 foot ceilings, river views and floor-to-ceiling windows. Both Ehrmann and Caroline Thebaud represented Two Trees in the transactions with Blow! Magazine, Cabinet Magazine and Soft Skull Press. Chris Havens handled the lease with Wax Poetics.
Blow! Magazine is an entertainment magazine from Equal Writes Publications. The hip hop periodical will occupy almost 1,500 s/f of office space during its approximately one-year lease.
Hailed as "daringly provocative," Soft Skull Press is known for its wide variety of contemporary books on topics ranging from politics and poetry to music and art. The firm has taken a five-year least for 1,000 s/f of space.
Cabinet Magazine has signed a three-year lease for 800 s/f of space. The publication caters to the intellectually curious reader with its quarterly magazine of art and culture.
Wax Poetics, which has agreed to 1,049 s/f of space for a term of three years, publishes avant-garde material on music and art.
