The New York City Council has approved a new $550M mixed use development project in Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY. In a major step forward in the city's recovery Acme Smoked Fish, one of Brooklyn's oldest manufacturers will be an anchor tenant for this project.
The Acme factory will be a 4 story approximately 95,300 square foot fish smoking and packing plant. There will be an adjacent 454,600 square foot commercial development with plenty of natural light, open workspaces and wonderful unobstructed water and Manhattan views. The project will also have 33,800 square feet of ground floor retail space. The project will also feature a pedestrian gateway for the Greenpoint and Williamsburg communities linking McCarren Park and the future Bushwick Inlet Park by adding ½ acre of tree lined open space.
The project named 10 Wythe is a collaboration between Rubenstein Partners the developer and Gensler the architectural firm which worked on nearby 25 Kent office and manufacturing building. The name 10 Wythe comes from it's 3 acre location on the block bounded by Wythe Avenue, Gem Street, Banker Street and Meserole Avenue.
Adam Caslow co CEO and 4th generation owner of Acme Smoked Fish says “from it's skilled workforce to it's vibrant culture being in Brooklyn has always been central to the company's success and we're thrilled to now have the opportunity to not only remain here in the borough but to also expand our operations as we continue to grow with the neighborhood, we've called home for generations”.
The project has the approval of community groups, labor advocates, non profit organizations and economic development entities.
According to Leah Archibald Executive Director of Evergreen Exchange, North Brooklyn's leading industrial and manufacturing advocate “this project is the gold standard for how we can preserve and grow industrial use in the 21st century economy while growing economic equity locally”. According to Randy Peers, President and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, the borough's leading economic development and small business advocate “approving this plan is good for driving business in Brooklyn and creating economic opportunities that benefit the community, plain and simple”.
Acme sponsors a weekly “Fish Friday” program in which consumers can order a selection of the company's smoke fish and then pick it up at a “curbside pickup” arrangement at Acme's current headquarters on Gem Street, also in Greenpoint.
