Brooklyn Chamber Relocates Offices to Industry City

The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is moving to Industry City after more than 100 years operating from Downtown Brooklyn. The new office at the six-million-square-foot manufacturing and innovation campus offers the organization a 30% space increase.

“Industry City is truly an economic engine for Brooklyn, and its diverse tenant mix of manufacturing, retail, hospitality, tech, fashion, design, and MWBEs reflects our business community,” said Randy Peers, Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce president and CEO. “Plus, its vibrant, amenity-rich environment is strategic for attracting top minds and talent to the organization.” 

As part of the move to its new home, the Chamber  announced enhancements to its “Good Help” small business staffing service that will complement existing programming at The Innovation Lab, Industry City’s community job training and entrepreneurship center that has served 5,000 local job seekers with skills and career placement services and provided recruitment and growth planning support to local businesses.
