    There’s a feeling of deja vu in Sunset Park and adjoining dockside facilities. More than 100 years ago, the shipping industry helped build Brooklyn into a juggernaut of manufacturing. Today, waterfront dock space is springing back to usefulness.

    Still, it’s not every day that you can lease private dock space in the New York metropolitan area.

    But you can at 50 21st Street. This 600-linear-foot, 30-foot-deep berth on Gowanus Bay offers access to the nation’s largest consumer marketplace and one of the busiest ports in the U.S.

    South of the South Brooklyn Marine Terminal and east of the Red Hook Container Terminal, 50 21st is part of Sunset Industrial Park, an 18-acre site with 400,000 square feet of warehouse and office space.

    The Industrial Park’s traffic pattern provides easy access through two curb cuts on 3rd Avenue, and a road circling the interior of the property.

    Directly north of the property is Home Depot, with adjoining retail along 3rd Avenue. Other well-known retailers nearby in Brooklyn include IKEA, Lowes and Whole Foods.

    Along the waterfront to the south, existing properties are used primarily as office, industrial and distribution facilities. Best of all, the dock is available at a better-than-market price.

    Prospective tenants are invited to contact 50 21st.
