01 May BROKKLYNREPORTER: Industry City continues its rapid growth of dining, business, and more
It has been another year of significant growth for Industry City (IC), with more on the way. Whether it’s expanded dining options, or the opening of a lab for veterans, businesses, and companies, everyone is clamoring to operate their business at the six-million-square-foot collection of warehouse structures situated on the waterfront.
IC includes 16 buildings, 35 acres and over 450 companies. According to IC, the Jamestown, Belvedere Capital and Angelo Gordon & Co.-owned property has invested over $250 million.
On-site employment has grown by an average of 100 jobs per month—from 1,900 jobs in 2013 to more than 6,500 jobs today, says IC.
This past November, IC cut the ribbon on its newest facility, the Veterans Future Lab, a state-of-the-art facility from the NYU Tandon School of Engineering that provides support to start-up companies founded by United States military veterans.
