Steiner Studios expanding

Brooklyn facilities plan renovation

A little more than two years after opening its doors, Brooklyn’s Steiner Studios is expanding.

Studios’ chairman Douglas Steiner and prexy-CEO Andrew H. Kimball plan to renovate a 289,000-square-foot, seven-story World War II-era building that stands at the entrance of the 15-acre Steiner Studios media campus. It will be added to the studio’s space at the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Renovation of the building, which is expected to begin in the next few months, will double the Steiner space, bringing it to 600,000 square feet.

“Our thinking with the expansion is basically that firms are getting pushed out of Manhattan due to higher rents by residential convergence and also by the expansion of the Javitz Center and the rezoning of the far West Side,” Steiner said. “So those firms can find a home here.”

New building will consist of smaller soundstages for second-unit production, commercials, musicvideos and still photography. Also, it will house post-production facilities, flex-warehouse space, wardrobe facilities and office space, all of which will be available to production-related companies on a short- or long-term basis.

Expansion is expected to bring an additional 550 jobs to the Navy Yard, Steiner said.

Pics shot on the Steiner stage include “The Producers” and “Fur.”
