Industry City Tallies 870K SF of Leases Since March 2020
The 16-building Industry City complex in Brooklyn has leased more than 870,000 square feet of space since March 2020. This figure accounts for nearly 200 leases in under two years to businesses—emerging and established—throughout the retail, office, industrial, and manufacturing sectors and within the fashion, design, biosciences, automotive, and education industries, among many others.
“Industry City’s campus environment provides companies and brands of all sizes an ecosystem that fosters growth and a business community that helps them thrive,” said Andrew Kimball, Industry City’s CEO. “This approach to landlord-tenant partnership, combined with unique indoor and outdoor amenities, has been more important than ever over the past 18 months.
“The fact that this 870,000 square feet is comprised of close to 200 leases is both something we’re incredibly proud of and a testament to why this model works. We’re look forward to continuing this strong trajectory into the new year.”
