The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is working to open up more space for the smallest startups, with its eyes on the Fulton Mall. They are looking to renovate 10,000 square feet and sublease it to fledgling firms, as Crain’s reports.
Apparently, many of the upper floors of retail spaces along Fulton Street are vacant, according to Curbed. This move is part of the larger Brooklyn Tech Triangle strategic plan, and funded by the New York Economic Development Corporation. The hope is that it will show the way to other landlords that money can be made by rehabbing some of this unused two and three story space.
