Convene and Brookfield Properties have partnered up to open up a new 73,000 square foot multi-use space in Lower Manhattan.
The Brookfield Place location will be managed by Convene’s hospitality staff and offer a full-service events venue.
Brookfield found a gap to fill in Lower Manhattan’s large event space market, so it enlisted Convene to build and manage the corporate and cultural events venue that will have seating for about 500 people. It will also include smaller meetings and events spaces, as well as a retail cafe.
Convene’s Brookfield Place location is the company’s sixth in Brookfield’s portfolio and 30th location nationwide.
“We recognized that sophisticated event and flex meeting space was a component that would enhance the Brookfield Place experience for office tenants and visitors alike,” said Ben Brown, Executive Vice President, Brookfield Property Group. “Convene’s unique plans for this space, coupled with its exceptional hospitality services, will be a game-changer for Brookfield Place on all fronts.”
Last July, Convene locked in $152 million in a Series D funding round that has allowed the company to continue its expansion worldwide.
