Samson Stages Expanding in Brooklyn with Multi-Level Red Hook Facility

Samson Stages will expand its local movie and TV operations by creating a 330,000 square foot building with new studios and soundstages on the waterfront in Red Hook, Brooklyn. The $400-milliuon project will be located at 744 Clinton St., the current site of Sunshine Lighting.  

Designed by BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group, the new Samson Stages Red Hook Studio is envisioned as a dynamic vertical village, where the building structure is created from the stacking of eight stages. 

In addition to the eight stacked stages, there will be green terraces across both levels. Parking will be available within the depth of the building and Clinton Street will include a lobby entrance and cafe.  

“The new addition to Samson Stages will create jobs, will give the neighborhood a new waterfront park, and will continue to make New York the center of TV and film production,” said Sam Geiger, CEO of Samson Stages.
