Brooklyn Brewery to build new headquarters in New York

WCN Editorial Team 18 May 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Brooklyn Brewery is expanding its operations by constructing a new brewery, headquarters and rooftop restaurant and beer garden at the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77 in New York.

Brooklyn Brewery, which opened its first brewery 20 years ago in Williamsburg, will lease a total of 700sq m of the building, which is now undergoing an $185M refurbishment.

The revamp of Building 77 will transform 9,300sq m of storage space into a manufacturing, tech and design hub.

Brooklyn Brewery’s CEO Eric Ottaway said that in addition to the Navy Yard site, the company is hoping to build a large brewery in Staten Island to handle production that is now done in Utica, New York. The brewery will maintain its brewing operations in its original site in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, until its leases expire in 2025.

Ottaway added that the company is hoping to extend that lease beyond 2025 and maintain a presence in Williamsburg.

Brooklyn Brewery will produce 50,000 barrels annually and will employ 124 people, with the long-term goal of creating an additional 100 jobs.

Upon completion in early 2017, the development will create a total of 3,000 jobs.
