Scarce are the environments in New York where big concepts, magisterial visions, and bright ideas can thrive at a scale to reverberate around the world.
The former HQ of the Whale Oil Company, these vast structures also once housed a torpedo assembly line. The Whale is adjacent to the Brooklyn Army Terminal and the New York Harbor in Sunset Park.
The Whale has been thoroughly re-commissioned, refreshed, and re-engineered for the visionary, the big thinker who delights in exchanging square footage for square yardage.
The building’s large windows provide the lens through which an enlightened few will see the future of business, as well as picturesque views of the Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor.
