"The owners of Industry City have filed their long-awaited application to rezone the 30-acre complex in Sunset Park, kicking off the city’s months-long land-use review process," reports Rich Bockmann.

"Industry City CEO Andrew Kimball filed the company’s 135-page application with the Department of City Planning late last month, seeking in part to allow for 1.45 million square feet of new construction at the site," adds Bockman

"A rezoning of Industry City that could allow the waterfront complex in Brooklyn to expand and add new uses, such as classroom space, hotel rooms and retail stores, is about to begin," reports Daniel Geiger in a separate article.

"The owners of the 35-acre property have filed an application with the City Planning Commission, which oversees zoning matters, to begin the months-long rezoning process, known as the uniform land-use review procedure, or ULURP," adds Geiger.
