Family-owned commercial, residential, industrial and retail real estate firm Muss Development has its eye on development outside of Manhattan these days. Principal Jason Muss spoke with GlobeSt.com about the company’s projects in Downtown Brooklyn and aligning them bordering neighborhoods, including Brooklyn Heights.
Regarding his long-term vision for Downtown Brooklyn, Muss said:
We believe this is the connecting neighborhood to other great neighborhoods in Brooklyn, like DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, brownstone Brooklyn, Fort Greene, the Barclays Center (and) downtown Manhattan. With the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, there is a tremendous amount of mobility, and we will continue to service Downtown Manhattan in addition to Brooklyn.
The idea of tourists coming to Brooklyn has become a real incredible thing over the last five to 10 years. We have the World Trade Center, the Statue of Liberty, Prospect Park and the amount of pedestrians that walk along the Brooklyn Bridge and pass our hotel is really incredible. Downtown Brooklyn will continue its strength.
