We’ve seen plenty of creative outdoor dining set-ups this year, but this just might be the biggest: Brooklyn’s Industry City launched 12,000 square feet of outdoor dining last week. The communal outdoor seating will be stretched across three courtyards, with five “breathable” tents as well as outdoor heaters to warm you up from the winter chill.

Industry City’s ownership, the same that developed NYC’s Chelsea Market and millions of square feet across the country, is hands-on with development, management, leasing, and events teams on-site.
WHAT'S HAPPENING AT IC
Peruse tenant stories and press, covering leasing, consumer, and art.
With office occupancy citywide hovering around 15%, Industry City in Brooklyn has been seeing roughly 50% of the campus’ employees come in to work. Jim Somoza and Kathe Kramer Chase, the campus’ leasing executives, have managed to keep some tenants coming to their offices. At the same time, they’ve largely avoided the slowdown in office and retail leasing that many other landlords have experienced during the coronavirus pandemic.
