Greenpoint Manufacturing and Design Center (GMDC) has renovated a 50,000 square foot industrial building to create a manufacturing facility for several small-scale manufacturers.

Located in Crown Heights Brooklyn just a few blocks from public transportation, the facility will provide affordable space, for woodworkers, custom frame builders, metal workers, ceramic artists, and other artisanal trades. The renovated facility will achieve LEED Silver certification.
