As part of the redevelopment of the Made in New York (MiNY) Campus at Bush Terminal in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood, nonprofit Slow Factory will join the MiNY Garment Manufacturing Hub as the first anchor tenant.
The MiNY Garment Hub will serve as a space to grow jobs and expand workforce training in garment manufacturing, fashion design, and other affiliated businesses. Additionally, the Garment Hub will create 460 fashion jobs onsite and train 500 people.
“New York City was already the fashion capital of the United States, but the redevelopment and creation of new fashion jobs at the Made in NY Campus in Brooklyn will only solidify our place as the city of swagger,” said Mayor Eric Adams.
Slow Factory will establish a dedicated multidisciplinary institute, which will deliver educational programming and workforce training, a product studio, and a research and development lab all under one roof.
