Broadway Stages to discuss impact on the economy at SIEDC Business Conference

Staten Island, NY, April 24, 2017 – On Thursday, April 27th, Broadway Stages, the largest full-service television and film production company on the East Coast with over 40 sound stages in Brooklyn and Queens, will be joining the Staten Island Economic Development Corporation (SIEDC) at their annual business conference. Broadway Stages will be announcing their plans at a press conference scheduled for 11:00 a.m. in the Trevi Tent at the Hilton Garden Inn on Staten Island and will be introduced by Borough President James Oddo.

The conference is attended by corporate representatives, elected officials, individual philanthropists, and local business owners who are committed to improving Staten Island. Though Broadway Stages is not officially in Staten Island yet, the company is hoping to become a part of the borough’s family before the end of the year with the purchase of the shuttered Arthur Kill Correctional Facility.

“Our decision to make an investment in Staten Island is in line with our core belief, which is to become a partner in the community, not just another business,” said Gina Argento, President and CEO of Broadway Stages. “Part of the reason we have been able to grow as quickly as we have is because of the relationships we build in the local communities we operate in. It’s something we’re incredibly proud of and look forward to continuing to build those relationships in Staten Island.”

Broadway Stages plans to turn the facility into additional sound stages, while keeping some of the prison intact to provide authentic prison scenes for the shows and movies that film there. It will be a major boom for the local economy and is expected to create 1,500 local jobs. To date, the company has also invested over $2 million in the local economy by paying for security, electric, and general maintenance of the facilities.

About SIEDC:

SIEDC’s mission is to enhance a thriving Staten Island economy by promoting public and private investment, and encouraging the development of commercial and industrial property and projects in an environmentally friendly manner, all of which improve the quality of life and provide broad and diverse employment opportunities.
