Space Carved Out for 3rd Ward at 1000 Dean Available for Lease

The 40,000-plus square feet of space that had been earmarked for 3rd Ward’s food incubator at 1000 Dean Street is still available for lease, according to Brownstoner, the blog run by the building’s developer, Jonathan Butler.
As previously reported, Bushwick-based studio and design incubator 3rd Ward shuttered suddenly last year and immediately called into question its future at 1000 Dean Street, where it had committed to establishing a culinary incubator at the new development.
The space is divided between 28,000 square feet on the ground floor and 18,000 square feet on the second floor. The units are available separately or can be combined, though the landlord is still hoping the second floor space will be turned into a co-working office, according to Brownstoner.
“We’ve done an informal RFP with co-working spaces,” Mr. Butler told Commercial Observer last year.
An additional space, an 8,000-square-foot former loading dock, is available and is marketed as ideal for a theater or food production-use.
Asking rent for all three units is in the high-$20s per square foot.
