Danny Meyer has opened the new 70,000 s/f headquarters for his Union Square Events at Industry City in Brooklyn.
The restaurateur joins officials from the property’s owners – Belvedere Capital, Jamestown, and Angelo Gordon – for a ribbon cutting and grand opening of the space at the 35-acre campus in Sunset Park.
Founded by Meyer in 2005, Union Square Events is part of the Union Square Hospitality Group, with Industry City serving as the company’s first home base in Brooklyn as it relocates from Manhattan.
Union Square Events will utilize its 70,000 s/f combined kitchen, tasting and office space (designed by Gensler) as its corporate headquarters. It includes a 33,000 s/f commissary kitchen along with a tasting room, 120-seat dining room for employees, and incubator programs for culinary entrepreneurs.
The company curates unique and customized catering and dining experiences for major companies, venues, and events including CitiField, the Whitney Museum, Delta Airlines, Facebook and more.
Meyer has brought New York City several notable restaurants including Gramercy Tavern, Daily Provisions, Shake Shack, The Modern, Union Square Café and more.
The strategic redevelopment of Industry City—launched in 2013 by Belvedere Capital and Jamestown—has generated significant leasing activity with more than three million square feet of space lease in the past six years.
