The Brooklyn Army Terminal: New York’s Next Manufacturing Hub? - The New York Times
The massive, 100-year-old industrial space in Sunset Park could have lured more tech start-ups, but instead its focus is on New Yorkers who make things.

Grimy, Glorious, Gone. The Divergent Paths of 7 Train Stations - The New York Times
The middle of the country has a tortured romance with its train stations, often grandiose structures that shaped local history but stopped serving a purpose. The announcement this summer that Detroit’s crumbling train terminal — among the best-known symbols of that city’s decline — would be turned into futuristic offices brought new attention to the problem of what to do with aging depots.

The Factory That Oreos Built - Smithsonian
If walls could speak, the brick at New York’s Chelsea Market would have more than a few stories to tell.

Alphabet (the parent company of Google) purchased the building in March of 2018 for $2.4 billion—an earth-shattering figure even in New York City’s real estate market—but this isn’t a glittering, 21st-century beacon, a symbol of the ingenuity of Silicon Valley. In reality, the looming brick structure remains largely the same as it did more than a century ago, when it served as headquarters for the iconic snack company Nabisco.

Old Buildings Are U.S. Cities’ Biggest Sustainability Challenge - HBR
In the United States, buildings consume 41 percent of the nation’s total energy use, through lighting, heating, air conditioning, elevators, and the thousands of items plugged into their sockets. In large urban centers such as Chicago and New York, the figure surpasses 70%. As the world seeks to forge a path to a clean energy future, the simple fact is that we need to reduce the energy used by cities and their buildings.

Artful Brownfields: Transparency through Creativity - ideas + buildings
There is something mysterious about brownfields. They are part industrial and part natural; something that we as designers sometimes romanticize. They are, however, less picturesque to the communities that grew up around the pollution, contamination, related health issues, job loss, and deterioration. How can we as designers and community engagement specialists close this perception gap and employ design to give transparency and humanity to the process of remediation and redevelopment?

Manufacturing a turnaround: Former American Axle plant on East Side finds a new direction - The Buffalo News
When American Axle & Manufacturing shut its East Side plant more than seven years ago, the outlook was bleak.

The plant had operated, under different identities, in the Delavan-Grider neighborhood for about 85 years. Good jobs vanished with the closing. And with American Axle gone, who would need a manufacturing complex with more than 1 million square feet?

Why Hiring Lags Behind Even as U.S. Factories Hum -
Across the country, companies have been slow to add capacity to meet growing demand as the U.S. economy has picked up. And even when they are investing, they often take pains to add as few jobs as possible. Xerox Corp. has broken ground on a $35 million expansion of a sophisticated plant making high-tech toner for printers and copiers. It decided to make the investment at an existing Xerox facility in Webster, N.Y., about 12 miles outside Rochester, in part because it would require adding fewer jobs than at the other sites it considered. Fertilizer maker Mosaic Co. had planned to build a $700 million ammonia plant. But last fall it dropped those plans and decided to buy the product from a supplier instead.

The hulking industrial buildings that line Sunset Park’s waterfront once bustled with manufacturing and military activity.

But the city, which owns more than one-third of the space, and private developers are revamping these properties to appeal to a more nimble manufacturing tenant.
