A Sustainable Urban Industrial District

The Sunset Park waterfront district is already a major contributor to NYC’s industrial sector. The Vision Plan is a roadmap for redeveloping this key asset to seize the opportunities of the 21st century and make it a prime destination for environmentally-sustainable industry. Over a long-term 10-year strategy, NYCEDC aims to:

  • Maximize the efficient movement of goods.
  • Protect and grow industrial employment.
  • Promote green practices.
  • Balance neighborhood needs.
Brooklyn’s transformation into a bastion of creativity and leader of industry will be remembered as one of the most dramatic urban renaissances in history.

Delivering Results

Growing and strengthening the Sunset Park waterfront will deliver substantial benefits for the people and economy of this community and NYC as a whole.

The Sunset Park industrial waterfront has enormous potential. With its strategic location on Upper New York Bay, extensive industrial infrastructure, access to a large local labor pool, and connection to major transportation networks, it’s in a strong position to be a lead player in the diversification and growth of NYC’s economy.
