The Wall Street Journal reports that tech company MakerBot Industries has leased the full 21st floor of One MetroTech Center in Downtown Brooklyn. According to officials, MakerBot is the first technology company to move offices into Downtown Brooklyn. “We’re going to put the tech in MetroTech, literally,” said Bre Pettis, one of the MakerBot’s founders. The move, along with the recently announced NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) slated for 370 Jay Street, is a major boost to Brooklyn’s burgeoning Tech Triangle.
Glenn Markman, Executive Vice President at Cushman & Wakefield, exclusively represented MakerBot in the deal.
