Brooklyn Grange is developing green spaces at Kearny Point in New Jersey

Kearny Point in New Jersey

“We know what these industrial spaces can become and how they can be reinvented. We’ve seen the evolution of the Navy Yard. When we talked to the people at Hugo Neu about their vision about Kearny Point, we really got it. It resonated with us.”

Inhabit has some serious adaptive reuse candy – if you are into that sort of thing.

We are! Especially if the setting is in an shipyard in Amsterdam.

The waterfront along Amsterdam North is a vast industrial area that was once the city’s largest shipyard. Known as NDSM (aka “City of the Arts”), the area is now full of large warehouses and open spaces that have been transformed into experimental projects and shelters. Within its grounds, the brilliant Noorderlicht (Aurora Borealis), which is housed in a former greenhouse, serves as a meeting place for creatives working in the area and offers a wide variety of tasty organic seasonal dishes.
