Camp David is continuing its partnership with the Council of Fashion Designers of America in collaboration with Industry City. The winners of the CFDA's Elaine Gold Launchpad award will receive an appointed office in Industry City and studio space at Camp David.
Camp David has completed plans for their expansion in Industry City. Adding 20,000 square feet to the communal office space, and opening the doors for 240 additional members to join, the 4th Floor will provide greater flexibility, reflecting Camp David's continued commitment to hospitality and providing beautiful surroundings in the workplace.
Camp David offers a calming respite from Manhattan and a better way to work. For members of its community, Camp David provides a place for elevated dialogue, observation, research, production and innovation. Inside the walls of Industry City, and as a home to world-class thinkers, the scope of work being done at Camp David spans the vocational spectrum, from fashion design to fine arts, activism to architecture, security services, virtual reality, and beyond.
Industry City is a 6 million-square-foot mixed-use complex comprised of 16 buildings spanning 35 acres on the waterfront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The property's ownership – led by Belvedere Capital, Jamestown and Angelo Gordon & Co. – is transforming the complex, while cultivating a diverse tenant mix that fuses today's burgeoning innovation economy with traditional manufacturing and artisan craft. To date, the transformation has included over 400 million dollars of infrastructure improvements, the addition of destination courtyards, experience-driven dining, retail and other amenities or event programming. This work is paving the way toward a vibrant and diverse community of forward-thinking companies that support good-paying jobs for workers across skill and experience levels. Since the new partnership was forged in August 2013, businesses based at Industry city have grown by an average of 100 jobs per month, increasing employment from 1,900 jobs in 2013 to 7,500 jobs today.
