HITN, a television network geared toward Hispanics, is more than doubling its presence at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

The nonprofit is expanding from 21,000 to about 61,000 square feet at the navy yard’s Building 292, according to Crain’s. This expansion includes roughly 15,000 square feet of rooftop space and is meant to boost the size of the network’s production facilities, let it produce more original content and handle filming, editing and broadcasting for other companies.

HITN currently has 57 employees and estimates it will add between 50 and 60 more jobs in the expansion.

Building 292 stands four stories tall and takes up 250,000 square feet on the 300-acre Brooklyn Navy Yard campus. [Crain’s]  – Eddie Small
