About Industry City

 
Bounded by 2nd and 3rd Aves., and 32nd and 39th Sts. in Sunset Park, Industry City is a six-million-square-foot swath of industrial buildings within the 24-acre Bush Terminal, built in the early 1900s when the borough’s waterfront was a bustling port and trading center. Now owned by Industry City Associates, the complex bears traces of the past — like rail tracks for trains that used to service the terminal — and industrial businesses that employ thousands of people casting the complex as a space that blends Brooklyn's industrial past with its rising creative class, with space for artists to work alongside industrial tenants.

"The idea is to establish new paradigms for industrial redevelopments, models that don’t displace existing communities but rather incorporate cultural and industrial production side by side.”
