Full-service commercial real estate firm ABS Partners Real Estate, LLC., announced that it has opened its fourth office located at 99 Scott Avenue in the Bushwick neighborhood of Brooklyn.
The new location is the firm’s first in the borough of Brooklyn and acts as the headquarters for the ABS Brooklyn and Queens sales and leasing team, which is led by Ben Waller.
“ABS is experiencing a surge of activity in the Brooklyn market, making it an excellent time to establish a local presence in the neighborhood,” said Waller.
“ABS remains accessible to all of our clients and is in a strong position to offer advice, market knowledge and information gathered first-hand as a result of our local activity in each market.”
Speaking about the new office, ABS President and Co-Managing Partner, Gregg Schenker, continued, “ABS’ growth is directly attributed to the confidence our clients have placed in us and the professionalism of the ABS team.”
In addition, ABS Partners announced that Corey Cohen has joined the team to continue growing the firm’s presence in Brooklyn and Queens. Corey joins ABS from The Roebling Group, where he was a managing partner specializing in residential and commercial leasing in Brooklyn, specifically in Williamsburg, Greenpoint and Bushwick.
“Corey will be a terrific asset to our team and property portfolio in North Brooklyn, which includes exclusive leasing assignments at major office and retail projects in the area, like The Bushwick Generator at 215 Moore Street, a 100,000-square-foot warehouse conversion, and The Venus Knitting Mills at 117 Grattan Street, a 71,000-square-foot commercial loft building,” added Waller.
Along with its new office at 99 Scott Avenue, ABS Partners has three additional offices in the New York Metro area; its headquarters at 200 Park Avenue South in Manhattan, 550 Mamaroneck Avenue in Harrison, NY and 480 Barnum Avenue in Bridgeport, CT.
Last month, real estate crowdfunding platform CityFunders launched an investment listing for 99 Scott Avenue. The service is seeking a $1 million contribution from investors for the 22,000 s/f building that was previously used as a manufacturing warehouse.
The property, which comes with 30,000 s/f of parking space, was purchased by Bushwack Capital last December for $8.3 million.
Bushwack, the beneficiary of the fundraising effort, plans to convert the building into an event venue that contains a restaurant, a beer garden, a winery and some office space
