Jehovah”s Witnesses have relocated their world headquarters from Brooklyn, New York – where they have been since 1909 – to Warwick, Upstate New York. The construction project is already completed – months ahead of schedule! On Monday, April 3, 2017, the world headquarters at Warwick will open for tours.

World Headquarters Relocation from Brooklyn to Warwick, New York
In July 2009, Jehovah’s Witnesses purchased a plot of land in the state of New York, U.S.A., with plans to relocate their world headquarters. The 253-acre property is located about 50 miles northwest of the existing facilities, which have been in Brooklyn, New York, since 1909.Some 800 Bethelites will live and work at the new facility, which will include an office building, a services building, maintenance buildings, and four residence buildings. A modest museum documenting the modern-day history of Jehovah’s Witnesses is also planned for the site.
Branch offices in other parts of the world now share in the printing of Bibles and Bible-based literature, which was once exclusively done in Brooklyn. In 2004, printing and shipping operations in the United States were moved to Wallkill, New York, about 90 miles northwest of Brooklyn. Cost too is a consideration. It is expensive to operate and maintain the aging and scattered facilities in Brooklyn. By relocating to a compact facility, Jehovah”s Witnesses can make better use of donated funds.

The Construction Site: Map with Descriptive Labels
Available since several months are the first very interesting Google satellite images of the Warwick construction site and the Tuxedo construction support site. The images were shot on 12th October 2014. At the Warwick site we can see the progress of the residence buildings and the service building. The vehicle maintenance building and the visitor parking garage are nearly “completed”.
