Brooklyn’s industrial waterfront is about to receive a $136 million cash infusion in order to re-envision and connect existing warehouses and public spaces as a hub for film and fashion.

The project, recently announced by the Mayor of New York and designed by WXY architecture + urban design, will create 300,000 sf of new garment manufacturing and film/television production spaces at Bush Terminal in Sunset Park.

The Sunset Park neighborhood and industrial hub sit on the waterfront in southwest Brooklyn.  The WXY architecture + urban planning master plan will develop the area to maximize quality manufacturing space and jobs, make the streetscape more pedestrian friendly, and add new plaza spaces.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation hopes the modernization of the area will help attract more industrial businesses and quality jobs to Sunset Park. The Bush Terminal expansion comes on the heels of the $115 million expansion of the Brooklyn Army Terminal, another of the district’s active industrial campuses.

WXY architecture + urban planning also provided its services for the Brooklyn Army Terminal expansion, which will bring 500,000 sf of new industrial space in September 2017.
