Nets Corporate Headquarters Moving to Downtown Brooklyn

January 5, 2012

New Corp Headquarters of the Nets

Now that the New Jersey Nets are officially the Brooklyn Nets, it is a no-brainer that their corporate offices, which handle the business side of the team, should also be situated in Brooklyn. Beginning next month 15 Metro Tech Center will be the new corporate headquarters of the Nets.

A long-term lease was signed this week for the entire 11th floor of the 19 story building situated in the heart of downtown Brooklyn. The 35,145 square foot space will be the centralized location for the 150 employees of the team and of the Barclays Center, the playing venue for the Nets which is still under construction.

The CEO of the Nets and Barclays Center, Brett Yormark said in a statement that,

“MetroTech is a terrific environment in the heart of Brooklyn’s business district and a convenient location for our corporate headquarters. We look forward to being part of the continued renaissance of downtown Brooklyn.”

The Nets are scheduled to inaugurate their new arena at the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season.  Jay-Z is going to kick off the grand opening of Barclays Center later on this year, while David Diamante will be the official announcer of the Nets. (Diamante owns a Fort Greene cigar shop owner.)

“Having the corporate offices of Brooklyn’s first professional sports team since 1957 downtown will be a ‘net positive’ for the neighborhood,” said Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz.
