BROOKLYN BREWERY DEVELOPMENT ADVISORY SERVICES (2014-Present)
The Brooklyn Brewery has engaged BJH to assist it in siting and developing a new 400,000 to 1,000,000 barrel brewery. The Brewery is seeking to expand capacity primarily to serve overseas markets in Northern Europe where demand is growing exponentially. Ideally, the Brewery is seeking to locate within close proximity to the Port of New York and New Jersey, and at a site that either has rail or where rail can easily be activated. BJH’s project scope involves undertaking location analysis, including performing tax and economic development program and benefit level comparisons across jurisdictions, as well as negotiating with land owners, determining timeframes and processes for obtaining discretionary land use and other development approvals, interfacing with public partners, and analyzing capital requirements and potential for investor returns.
