3D Printing Firm Quadruples Space in Navy Yard Move

ABS Partners Real Estate has secured 4,164 square feet of white box space for 3D printing firm GCreate at the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77. The firm is relocating from Bushwick.

“In the 3D printing sector, many firms are simply outgrowing their starter office spaces,” said ABS’ Abdul Shaibu, who represented GCreate with his colleague Ben Waller. “It can be a challenge to find spaces that are affordable and convenient to the ‘startup’ talent pool, while meeting the logistical requirements of a manufacturing company.” He added that GCreate quadrupled its space with the Navy Yard move.

GCreate is coming to a one-million-square-foot property that’s in the final stages of its transformation from World War II-era office and storage facility, to an urban manufacturing hub at the center of the Yard. The $185-million Building 77 renovation is part of a larger $1-billion expansion underway at the Navy Yard.
