Join us for an inside look at Industry City, a 6 million square-foot 21st Century innovation and manufacturing district that is situated on the waterfront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.
At its peak during the industrial height of the early 20th Century, industry City – originally known as Bush Terminal – became one of the most prominent and successful facilities of its type worldwide, employing nearly 25,000 workers per day and helping Brooklyn develop into a major international seaport.
Today, Industry City is on the cusp of a rebirth as a dynamic 21st Century innovation and manufacturing community, one that balances existing manufacturing tenants with those centered on creative and innovation economy fields. The property’s current owners – a partnership of Jamestown and Belvedere Capital, along with Cammeby’s International and FBE Limited – are concurrently transforming ground floor and lower levels into a pedestrian friendly series of shops, showrooms, event spaces and courtyards.
Following a walking tour of the property, we’ll hear from Cristal Rivera, Chief of Staff and Director of Community Engagement at Industry City, about how this partnership is creating a hub of opportunity in the Sunset Park waterfront, a beacon for job creation, and a nexus of creativity and innovation.
