Brooklyn Brewery to build 440,000 sf brew house

The owner of the city’s largest privately-held industrial site, where Brooklyn Brewery will build a new headquarters on Staten Island, is planning to add 3 million square feet of warehouse space to the project on the borough’s western shore.

Staten Island Marine Development, which owns more than 670 acres bisected by the freight rail lines connecting the borough to the national rail system, plans to redevelop half of the site in two phases through 2020. The project would deliver 3.1 million square feet of warehouse space. The developer declined to comment, but Brooklyn Brewery CEO Eric Ottaway said his company will build a 440,000-square-foot brew house with room for a 300-seat indoor restaurant, a beer garden and an events space. The brewers also decided to add a retail component for visitors.

“We originally had not planned retail, but realized people would want to come see the facility so we’d better add a visitor center,” Ottaway wrote in an email.

Meanwhile, the owners of the brewery’s current home at 79 North 11th Street in Williamsburg have put the property on the market. It’s expected to sell for at least $50 million, as previously reported.

The proposal is just one project shaking things up on Staten Island. Further north, mega projects like the New York Wheel, Empire Outlets and the 900-unit rental project planned by Ironstate Development promise to transform the borough’s North Shore.

Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly stated that Brooklyn Brewery will take a portion of warehouse space on Staten Island. The company will only take space for its brewery and accessory spaces.
