Modern Meadow moves to New Jersey
Modern Meadow, a start-up making lab-derived animal materials, including leather, will move its headquarters from Brooklyn, N.Y., to Nutley, N.J. The 7,300-m² site, on a former Roche campus, will also house lab space and a pilot manufacturing facility. Modern Meadow engineers cells to grow collagen, which self-assembles into fibrils that in turn are converted into leather. New Jersey pitched in tax credits worth up to $32 million. Modern Meadow says it will grow its Brooklyn-based design and research studio.
