New York Works: NYCEDC and DCLA Announce 50,000 Square Feet of Artist Workspace at Brooklyn Army Terminal

With spaces ranging from 250 to 4,000 square feet, ArtBuilt Brooklyn meets the needs of a range of art-based businesses, from individual artists to small-scale production facilities. By providing tenants with access to long-term affordable workspace, the new space will give artists and organizations the platform they need to grow and succeed in New York City. ArtBuilt Brooklyn will complement a cluster of existing artist spaces at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, including Chashama, which currently operates 60,000 square feet of visual artist studios.

“The creative and cultural economy is synonymous with the identity of New York City. Investments in these industries are investments in our competitive advantage,” said NYCEDC President and CEO James Patchett. “By welcoming ArtBuilt to the Brooklyn Army Terminal, we’re not just creating much-needed affordable artist space; we’re creating good jobs across industries that have pushed New York City forward for decades.”

“New York’s creative community is an extraordinary source of energy and vitality for our city. But for artists to continue to thrive and produce work that connects with communities throughout the five boroughs, we need to keep New York a place where they can afford to live and work,” said Cultural Affairs Commissioner Tom Finkelpearl. “ArtBuilt’s new space in the Brooklyn Army Terminal is a step toward addressing the need for affordable workspace, providing a dynamic new base of operations for dozens of artists and creative workers. Through collaborations that expand the supply of affordable workspace, this Administration is committed to ensuring that working artists continue to call our neighborhoods home for generations to come.”
