Brooklyn’s Sunset Park Comes Alive

Commercial Observer—March 4, 2015

People who have long watched Brooklyn real estate might feel a peculiar sense of déjà vu: A neighborhood with an old, industrial building stock on the waterfront is suddenly roaring back to life thanks to young, hip, tech—and other creative—tenants.

You’d be forgiven if you thought we were talking about Dumbo.

No, we mean Sunset Park—specifically, the sprawling manufacturing complex, Industry City, which sits on the Brooklyn waterfront.

Creative companies call Industry City home

The tenant mix at Industry City ranges from Alexandra Ferguson, which makes eco-friendly pillows and accessories in its 4,000-square-foot factory, to Blue Marble Ice Cream which has its own ice cream-making plant, to ReCaFo a food purveyor making "real Caribbean food." The Brooklyn Nets are slated to move into its new state-of-the-art Hospital for Special Surgery practice facility this year.
