Time Inc. announced Thursday morning it has signed a long-term lease to move more than 300 of its employees to Industry City.
The Manhattan media giant said those moving to Brooklyn would include teams dedicated to Editorial Innovation, Technology and Content Solutions in addition to an automotive vertical that will also have a first-floor showroom. Altogether, the company is taking 55,000 square feet in the complex.
Consider it another small victory in Industry City’s billion-dollar plan to become a major technology hub.
“We are excited that our talented technology, advertising and creative teams will become a part of Industry City’s revitalization,” Time Inc. CEO Joe Ripp said in a statement. “This environment – known as an ‘innovation and manufacturing district’ – is an ideal space for building new products, reimagining content creation and developing advertising solutions.”
Time joins other companies in Industry City, including MakerBot, the Brooklyn NetsShyp and others. The complex recently nabbed a certification for having super-fast internet.
