Recently Ignitia Office was featured in the Wall Street Journal in an article by Keiko Morris. Keiko is a reporter who specializes in commercial real estate in New York. The piece was published in print and online after interviews with ownership from 1000 Dean Street and Co-Founders Josh Bobrowsky & Stephen DeRosa.
The article from the Journal is Below
“Co-working firm Ignitia Office plans to set up its first location at a renovated loft building in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, where creative firms have clustered.
Ignitia Office will take 17,000 square feet on the ground floor of 1000 Dean St., a 150,000-square-foot building that was once used to service Studebaker automobiles, said Marc Agger, a principal at Brownstoner Development LLC.
Brownstoner is part of a joint venture including BFC Partners and Goldman Sachs Urban Investment Group that redeveloped the four-story building.
Most of Ignitia’s co-working space will be devoted to private offices, said Josh Bobrowsky, co-founder and chief executive. The building worked perfectly for Ignitia because of its 9,000-square-foot food and beer hall called Berg’n, Mr. Bobrowsky said. Ignitia signed a 15-year lease.
“It allows us to have a total ecosystem in one space,” Mr. Bobrowsky said, referring to the food and beer hall. “It’s a unique offering you don’t find anywhere.””
