NEW YORK —?Three nonprofit groups, including the Garment Industry Development Corp., has submitted a grant proposal to the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. seeking funding for a program designed to keep apparel manufacturing downtown.
The proposal calls for a $25 million grant to create New York Fashion Space, which would be a nonprofit real estate development corporation that would run buildings dedicated to apparel manufacturing tenants. According to Linda Dworak, president of the GIDC, the goal would be for the company to run one or more buildings with a total space of 300,000 square feet that would provide room for about 2,500 apparel jobs.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
