Across six million sq ft of classic New York industrial architecture, Industry City is a unique retail experience attracting designers, makers and content creators alike.
Located on the Brooklyn waterfront, the creative complex is a collection of 16 industrial buildings dating back as far as the 1890s. Due to its prominent location, structure and immense scale, the building, known then as Bush Terminal, (after its founder Irving T. Bush) flourished.
Employing nearly 25,000 workers, Bush Terminal quickly become one of the most successful facilities of its type enabling Brooklyn as a major international seaport. But as urban manufacturing started on its steady decline, many of the buildings manufacturers began closing their doors. Bush Terminal then suffered through a period of dereliction and decay for over 40 years.
Today, new ownership is breathing new life into the fabric of the building. Rebranded as Industry City, the building again fulfills its purpose as a thriving centre of commerce and local employment creating over 2,000 new jobs and contributing to the rapidly emerging innovation economy.
Throughout Industry City, a diverse tenant mix fuses today’s burgeoning innovation economy with traditional manufacturing and artisanal craft including garment manufacturers, tech entrepreneurs, designers, and film and media production companies. Now powering a new generation of makers and manufacturers, the complex also offers a unique retail experience with brands such as ABC Home and Carpet, RH Outlet and Flavor Paper.
