New York to have new campus for the film and fashion industry
Feb 23, 2017 – New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has announced a new $136M project at Brooklyn’s historic Bush Terminal in New York.
The project, known as ‘Made in New York’, will create nearly 18,600 sq m of garment manufacturing space, and a 9,300 sq m film and television production facility.
The ‘Made in New York’ campus aims to synergize creative manufacturing uses and provide affordable, ‘best-in-class’ industrial facilities for garment manufacturing, film and media production, and related services and industries.
The campus is part of the mayors’ plan to create 100,000 good paying jobs by 2026, including 40,000 within the next four years.
Mayor Bill de Blasio said: “Good paying jobs are the bedrock of strong city. We will continue to invest in the ‘Made In New York’ brand and in New Yorkers. This is still your city, today and tomorrow.”
The project is expected to be complete in 2020, and create about 1,500 permanent jobs and 800 construction jobs.
