Industry City’s Kathe Chase On Transforming NYC’s Industrial Space

Kathe Chase has been at the forefront of New York City industrial conversions for 30 years. She was involved in the renovation of a former Nabisco factory into Chelsea Market in the 1990s, and with the conversion of the Falchi Building in Long Island City, Queens, into office and retail even before that.

In recent years, however, she has spent her time leasing up Industry City, a sprawling early 20th century manufacturing complex along the waterfront in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, owned by Jamestown, Belvedere Capital and Angelo, Gordon. During her tenure at Industry City, the 16-building, 6 million-square-foot campus has slowly transitioned from a derelict former warehouse district to an active office and retail development featuring landscaped courtyards with seating, shops and a food hall.
