Taylor has started their own firm, Taylor Mason Capital, and meets with Andalov first. This location, with brick interior walls and a view of the Manhattan Bridge is the new Empire Stores, a converted coffee warehouse in Dumbo that is home to places like the West Elm corporate office, the offshoot location of the Brooklyn Historical Society, and restaurants and bars for the public. You can see inside the construction of Empire Stores here, on a tour we did with architect Navid Maqami, founder and principal architect at S9Architecture.
