Footwear design and production company Estas Brands is relocating its New York office from Midtown Manhattan to a 15,000-square-foot space at Industry City in Sunset Park. The new space will include what’s reportedly the first ever footwear sample making and “hands on” footwear education facility in New York, to be known as Brooklyn Design Lab.
A vertically-integrated factory group, Estas is moving its New York-based employees to the new space upon its opening in the first quarter. Additional hiring for the new space is expected later in 2019.
“The Brooklyn Design Lab headquarters model, which inspires a cross-pollination of ideas across departments, mirrors the Industry City ecosystem at large,” said Industry City’s Kathe Chase.
Brielle Milano and Jeff Fein of Industry City’s internal leasing team represented Industry City, where rents range from $15 to $40 per square foot. Estas didn’t have a rep on the transaction.
