“We’re thrilled to transform Bush Terminal into the first-ever Made in New York Campus,” said said James Patchett, President and CEO of NYCEDC (New York City Economic Development Corporation).

“These state-of-the-art facilities will provide space for TV/film and media production and garment manufacturing. Through this effort, we will create quality jobs, help advance gender equity, diversity and inclusion in the media production industry, and strengthen the local Sunset Park community.”

Developers have until 2 November this year to submit proposals, with innovative design models and methods of promoting gender equity among the factors that will be prioritised during the selection.

New York is one of the top movie and TV production hubs in the US. In the spring of 2017 the state filming incentive was extended through to 2022 and this spring the city overtook Los Angeles as host of the highest number of drama pilots for the season.
