Andrew Kimball, who has spearheaded the transformation of the Brooklyn Navy Yard as president and ceo of the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corp., is leaving to pursue similar developments in the private sector. He is joining Jamestown Properties, the owner and developer of Manhattan’s Chelsea Market, GlobeSt reported. As Director of Innovation Economy Inititiatives, he will look for creative ways to repurpose old industrial buildings nationally. “Jamestown Properties presents a tremendous opportunity to transform the national conversation on the reuse and repositioning of industrial assets. As manufacturing shifts to light, sustainable tech-based uses, Jamestown is the perfect place to make a large-scale impact,” he said in a press release. No word yet on a possible replacement for the Bloomberg appointee.
