Andrew Kimball, who spearheaded the development of the Brooklyn Navy Yard into an industrial, tech and media hub, will join Jamestown Properties as its director of innovation economy initiatives, GlobeSt reported. Kimball officially served as the president and CEO of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp., the group that oversees the 300-acre waterfront area.

After being appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2005, he helped grow the tenant roster to 6,400 employees in over 300 businesses — significantly up from the 2001 tally of 3,600 workers.

In addition, over 2 million square feet of new space are now being developed. A formerly asbestos-filled building getting a $10 million overhaul, as previously reported.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve in the Bloomberg administration,” Kimball said in a statement. “Jamestown Properties presents a tremendous opportunity to transform the national conversation on the reuse and repositioning of industrial assets. As manufacturing shifts to light, sustainable tech-based uses, Jamestown is the perfect place to make a large-scale impact.” [GlobeSt]Zachary Kussin
