Historic Brooklyn Shipping Terminal Transforms Into Art, Design And Fashion Hub
With renovations well underway, Industry City christens a new event space with a design show.
The maker community in Brooklyn has experienced a surge in growth over the last decade. Individuals and small studios design and create everything from bicycles to high end fashion items. While there are sporadic events which offer opportunities for business owners to directly connect with consumers and sell, Brooklyn has lacked a dedicated venue to support local manufacturers, until now. The Factory Floor is a renovated 22,000 square foot space purpose-designed and built to host pop-up shops for local makers. It has potential to transform not only the local design community but also the surrounding neighborhood.
