Netflix is bringing a new TV production hub to Bushwick
Internet media giant Netflix is building a production hub in Bushwick with six sound stages, expected to host thousands of production crew jobs within five years, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced on Thursday.
The company has leased approximately 161,000 square feet to build the production and support space at 333 Johnson Ave., a three-story former printing facility.
BLD Architecture, on behalf of building owner Steel Equities, filed plans on Thursday with the NYC Department of Buildings to renovate and convert the site into television studios.
The hub will also include an expanded office in Manhattan at 888 Broadway that will directly create 127 new executive-level content, marketing and production development jobs over the next five years. Netflix in New York currently operates with 32 employees from an office in Chelsea.
