Brooklyn Chamber quits Fulton St for new offices near MetroTech
The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, at its Winter Gala at the El Caribe Country Club last Thursday night, officially announced that it will be moving to 335 Adams St., next to the New York Marriott Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, in the spring.
The new offices are also within the Renaissance Plaza development, developed and owned by Muss Development. Clemente Lisi, director of communications for the Chamber, said that in addition to meeting a need for more space caused by the Chamber’s growth, it will bring the Chamber to the heart of Downtown Brooklyn, a center for businesses.
The Chamber’s current offices, at 25 Elm St., near the Fulton Mall, he said. Earlier, the Chamber had its own building on Atlantic Avenue.
The Winter Gala featured a movie premiere-theme party that included a red carpet. The event was attended by a sellout crowd of 500 people, setting a record for a Brooklyn Chamber Winter Gala.
The evening featured Brooklyn’s most influential members of the film and television industry. The honorees included the Brooklyn College Graduate School of Cinema, Gina and Tony Argento of Broadway Stages, David and Douglas Steiner of Steiner Studios, and Katherine Oliver, commissioner of the NYC’s Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment.
