Earlier this year, developer Steiner Equities noted that it was planning a big expansion of its studio space at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Today, the Post runs down some details of Steiner's next move: a $100 million growth plan at the Navy Yard. The developer--which is putting up 80 Metropolitan where it demolished the Old Dutch Mustard Building--will be doing a "Hollywood-style back lot" on 20 acres in the Navy Yard and upping their presence in the facility from 16 to 36 acres. The studio already has the biggest soundstage in the Northeast. Interestingly, the studio will include "a large scenic reconstruction of New York City streets, cutting down on costly street closings for city location shoots and making it easier for city-based productions to film in the Big Apple rather than head to California." Or to Tribeca or Williamsburg or the Upper East Side or Park Slope, as the case may be. Studio tours of a fake New York City at the Navy Yard!
