The Nets are looking at a number of sites for their new training facility. According to a Brooklyn website, in addition to visiting site near Brooklyn Ikea in Red Hook, team representatives visited a school bus depot, also in Red Hook, recently. The site, at 62-64 Ferris Street, is next door to the Brooklyn Cruise Ship Terminal in a former industrial area.
The Nets are looking primarily in Brooklyn, but are not close to making a decision, which will be based on cost, access to Barclays Center, team offices and area airports. Team reps are being assisted by Cushman & Wakefield, the big real estate firm and a Barclays Center sponsor. The facility is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars and take up to two years to site, design and build.
