4. Industry City
Previously known as Bush Terminal, Industry City in Sunset Park was once a thriving development providing top-tier industrial services and support to its tenants throughout the early 20th century. Moving into the 21st century, it is now a joint venture between Jamestown, Angelo Gordon and Belvedere Capital, who have planned to invest about $1 billion over the next 12 years. While emphasizing its rich industrial heritage, Industry City aims to attract a tenant mix that creates synergy between traditional manufacturing, artisanal craft, and innovative technologies.
The 6-million square foot collection of warehouse structures are now home to some of New York City’s most innovative businesses, including the city’s first legal commercial-drone flight. Industry City has also hosted popular events such as the Brooklyn Flea + Smorgasburg and Mister Sunday.
This month, Brooklyn NETS unveiled its brand new practice facility at the Hospital for Special Surgery Training Center in Sunset Park. The new official training site for the Nets will be a 70,000-square-foot space on the eighth floor and rooftop of Industry City.
