Coworking operator BKLYN Commons has cut down on its space by 50% in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn.
The pandemic has forced the five-year-old firm owned by Jack Srour to give up 15,000 of its 30,000 square feet. The 45,000 square foot building is owned by Jack’s father Albert Srour.
The company has also reconfigured its space to accommodate pandemic-era requirements, such as creating new meeting rooms, private offices and open desks.
“Many of our members who downsized their staff, shared that they need less office space at this time to weather the economic storm caused by the pandemic,” said Johanne Brierre, BKLYN Commons head of growth. “We’re offering new options to meet their needs.”
