Public Realm Designs for Made in NY Campus Released

Last week, the NYC Economic Development Corporation (NYC EDC) released the designs for the garment manufacturing hub and public realm components of the new Made in NY Campus at Bush Terminal in Sunset Park. The campus will provide affordable facilities for garment manufacturing, film & media production, and related services and industries. The new campus is designed by W and nARCHITECTS and will include the conversion of a 200,000 sf building into workspaces and 5.3 acres of new public space. The public space, designed by W, will connect to the adjacent Bush Terminal Piers Park and will include waterfront access, enhanced streetscapes, pedestrianized plazas, and a water play feature. The Brooklyn Eagle covered the news and spoke to Jhaelen Hernandez-Eli, the senior vice president and head of design and construction at NYC EDC, who said, “It is rare to combine public space and a public realm with industrial space. This is one of the first industrial campuses in the US – to be able to reappropriate that kind of waterfront industrial space where people are making things is a unique opportunity.”
