First it was Eataly, and then it was Le District. Now, a Japanese–themed food market is set to open at Industry City in Brooklyn.

Dubbed Japan Village, the 20,000-square-foot space in Building 4 will actively imitate other gourmet food halls in Manhattan, according to Crain’s.

“Japan Village is going to offer visitors and tenants at Industry City an experience they can’t get,” Andrew Kimball, the chief executive of the 16-building, 35-acre complex in Sunset Park, told Crain’s. “That’s what excited us about this. It’s unique.”

Kimball said that he hopes the food hall will draw new visitors to the once derelict manufacturing campus. Takuya Yoshida, who operates the popular Sunrise Mart supermarket chain, is a managing partner of Japan Village.
