This tour offers behind the scenes access not available to the public. Each tour includes visits to 3-4 makers. Industry City is a stunning design, tech, media, food and beverage hub. It is a 16 building, 6 million commercial square foot redevelopment, with 5 acres of open space and it is the largest privately funded adaptive reuse project in the country. With amazing restaurants, shops, artist studios, co-working spaces and more, locals and visitors alike can explore for hours on end. Originally built in 1906 as a intermodal shipping facility to support manufacturing and distribution of products, it served as an important industrial site, but over the years manufacturing evolved and left the city, the site fell into disrepair. In 2015, the buildings that comprise Industry City were purchased by the same developers as Chelsea Market.
