Garment District Rezoning

Not to go all "Chicken Little" on ya, but the bell is tolling...  As early as April, the real estate/leasing door will be opened much wider to other types of businesses in what will one day be formerly known as The Garment District.

Sharing an article articulating just what is going on right now...

  1. I'm in the Pacific Northwest and find this sickening. Is there no organized opposition? The Brooklyn plan seems to be about manufacturing. What about all the rest?

    1. I don't think "opposition" is really an option when it comes to this. If anyone has other ideas, feel free to share... but it would seem that if the landlords can attract higher rents, and the garment related companies can't pay that much, maybe it is time to move to an area where the garment district can reinvent themselves. I don't think I'm alone in thinking that a district where only the oldest/strongest/least unique of companies can survive. Variety is what gives the whole community energy, and it can move to a new place! I say this optimistically, because I think it could really be a fantastic infusion of new energy!
