The concert company that runs Brooklyn venues the Music Hall of Williamsburg and Rough Trade NYC is planning a venue that can accommodate 2,000 in an industrial part of Williamsburg.

The party facilitators plan to build the cavernous club in a sprawling former steel factory on Frost Street between Debevoise and Morgan avenues. The concert hall is going to draw big-ticket acts, an executive predicted.

“We have venues for musicians at every stage of their careers,” said James Glancy, owner of Bowery Presents. “This will be our venue for shows that are moving on to larger audiences.”

The venue will have a similar layout as the Music Hall of Williamsburg, with a large open theater ringed by a balcony and smaller bars, as well as an enclosed outdoor courtyard for smokers.
