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

“Affordable studio space in Sunset Park is good news for artists. The new 50,000 square feet of space at Brooklyn Army Terminal will extend a citywide initiative to help artists and small firms struggling with high rents and displacement. Artists and art-centered companies are a vital part of the City’s economy and the lifeblood of our creative culture. I celebrate the selection of the local non-profit, ArtBuilt Brooklyn, to manage the site, and that some studios will be as small as 250 square feet. City-owned properties should dedicate a portion of their space to artists whenever practical, and I support finding more opportunities for low-cost, reliable studio space in Sunset Park,” said Council Member Carlos Menchaca.

“I welcome ArtBuilt as the newest artist studio and workspace at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. This new tenant will help support individuals and small businesses including fine artists, woodworkers, theatrical set designer/builders, and others. New businesses in the Sunset Park community should result in spending and activity with community residents. With new tenants, we should also look to better transportation and services to help get people to and from the Terminal,” said Assistant Speaker Felix W. Ortiz.
