Investments in Bush Terminal
The City is investing $136 million toward:
- Major renovations to existing assets to create a 200,000-square-foot garment manufacturing hub, upgrading industrial space in a 160,000-square-foot building, and improving the overall site plan
- New construction of 100,000 square feet of state-of-the-art film and television production facility
- Pedestrian-friendly streetscape improvements and new plaza space, including improvements to the 43rd Street corridor within the campus to improve visitor access to Bush Terminal Piers Park, as well as utility upgrades to support the built improvements
The Made in NY Campus
The film and television production sector is one of the fastest growing, high-wage industries in the city, leaving many firms struggling to find new space for production. The Made in NY campus will provide high-ceiling sound stages and support space for ancillary uses for film and television production, video and photo shoots, and emerging media sectors such as AR/VR.
Similarly, while garment manufacturing comprises 30% of the city’s manufacturing jobs, the industry has faced decades of global economic pressures that have forced companies to look overseas for production. The Made in NY garment manufacturing hub will provide small white-box spaces ranging from 2,000 to 40,000 square feet to companies working in pattern making, marking and grading, cutting and sewing, and sample making. The hub will also include shared services and related uses to support the success of these garment firms and the larger Sunset Park garment cluster. The hub will support between twenty-five and thirty-five garment manufacturing tenants.
NYCEDC will also require new Bush Terminal tenants to utilize the City’s HireNYC and Workforce1 programs to connect New Yorkers with job opportunities.
Enhancing the Sunset Park Industrial Business Zone and Community
This project builds on the Industrial Action Plan released by Mayor de Blasio and City Council Speaker Mark Viverito, which included hundreds of millions of dollars of investments in City-owned assets to support thousands of good-paying industrial jobs. The development also furthers NYCEDC’s Sunset Park Vision Plan, which aims to make extensive investments in infrastructure improvements, professionalizing maritime and rail service, and increasing and diversifying job-intensive industrial uses along the Sunset Park waterfront.
Made in NY is a service mark owned by the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and currently, has applications in the film/television and fashion sectors.
Our 36-acre Made in NY Campus at Bush Terminal offers best-in-class industrial spaces for garment manufacturing, film/tv/media production, and related light industrial and creative uses. We currently have a variety of spaces available for lease.
