Free Downtown Work Space Offered to Small Businesses Displaced by Sandy

By Irene Plagianos DNAinfo

The owners of the World Financial Center are offering up free work space — complete with Wi-Fi and stellar views — for small businesses and nonprofits displaced by Sandy.

Brookfield has outfitted 250 workstations with tables, chairs, Internet and cellular access on the 26th floor of their 250 Vesey St. building for those uprooted by the storm.

The offices, which are available for up to six months, are currently home to 16 organizations and businesses from lower Manhattan and Chelsea. A Brookfield sposkeswoman said there are currently about 25 open seats and encouraged businesses to continue to apply for space, since more spots will become available as the companies return to their buildings.

Brookfield is one of several property owners donating work space, power and Internet to those still recovering from the storm through a program started by the New York City Economic Development Corporation.

Organizations in need can contact Mark Kostic at mark.kostic@brookfield.com or 212-417-2516. Visit nycedc.com for a list of other spots available in the city.
