Reed is the president of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, the nonprofit economic development group he joined a year ago. (Reed will also be featured at our upcoming and sold-out State of Brooklyn Startups at the DUMBO Startup Lab.)
- Office space vacancy in Downtown Brooklyn is around 5 percent. That’s half of what it was a few years ago.
- Reed opted not to make a wish list of companies he’d like to see in Brooklyn, because he didn’t see it as his place to try to pick winners.
- Reed wants a 24/7 community in the borough. One key ingredient for that, he believes, would be more dorm space for the borough’s college students.
- The Brooklyn Tech Triangle has a goal of reaching 4 million square feet of space devoted to creative and technological endeavors. Reed projects that they have attained somewhere between two and three million square feet already.
- He sees a future in a Brooklyn centric component to NYC’s transit infrastructure.
