Modern Spaces launches new Brooklyn office

Brooklyn Daily Eagle

Real estate brokerage Modern Spaces recently launched its first Brooklyn office at 135 Kent Ave. on the Williamsburg waterfront, where it shares a 4,100-square-foot space with Sweetleaf coffeehouse.

In addition to the more than 150 brokers, clients and guests in attendance, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz helped kick off the celebration by presenting a proclamation to co-founders Eric Benaim and Ted Kokkoris.

Attendees received  orange Modern Spaces- and Brooklyn-branded Frisbees and sunglasses. And they enjoyed both The Bosco photo booth, by a Brooklyn-based supplier of state-of-the-art photo booths — where guests also received Brooklyn-themed props like fedoras, gold chains, cut-out mustaches and oversized specs to wear as they posed for pictures — and the music of DJ Ayers.

Brooklyn-brewed beer, hors d’oeuvres by Cubana Social and specialty drinks by Sweetleaf were also part of the celebration.

Designed by Benaim, the new office is environmentally-friendly and “old Brooklyn”-inspired with furnishings of reclaimed wood and salvaged materials,  and a Brooklyn street art-style mural by local Williamsburg artist Skewville.
