The city is putting $3 million into creating a centralized hub for the local media industry to collaborate and grow, and will locate it in Dumbo. Yesterday Mayor Bloomberg announced that the “Made in NY” media center, as it will be called, will move into 18,000 square feet in the landmarked former coffee warehouse at 20 Jay Street. Anticipated tenants will be developers, entrepreneurs and artists in the television, film, advertising, new media, marketing, gaming and branding industries. Two Trees will develop the site and the Independent Filmmaker Project, a nonprofit, will co-develop the building and operate it. Brooklyn-based architecture firm MESH Architectures will design the space. The incubator will help foster “media projects by offering low-cost work space and other support,” according to The New York Times. The Manhattan-based tech and new-media incubator General Assembly is also involved and will help put on educational programs and networking events for content creators and entrepreneurs. The site should open in spring of next year, said The Real Deal.
