$380 million Dock 72 project bringing 4,000 jobs to Brooklyn Navy Yard
BROOKLYN, N.Y. — The de Blasio administration and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation joined partners Rudin Development, Boston Properties, Inc. and WeWork to break ground May 5th at Dock 72, marking a major milestone in the 200-year history of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The transformative, 675,000 square-foot building will bring $380 million in private investment and 4,000 living wage jobs to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Dock 72 will serve the rapidly emerging technology and creative industries in Brooklyn, and the project will be one of the largest New York City commercial buildings to be constructed outside of Manhattan in decades.
“We are, quite literally, doubling down on good jobs at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. This project is going to help bring ideas, innovators and start-ups to the yard, where they can scale up their businesses, hire more New Yorkers and manufacture their products right here in Brooklyn,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.
