Jehovah's Witnesses world headquarters is doubling its size.

Jehovah’s Witnesses gave News 12 a tour of the 249-acre wooded property in Sloatsburg to show where they are planning to build their massive production studios.

“It will consolidate our other studios that we have around New York, and it will have six state-of-the-art audio and video production studios on site and the residents who will work in those facilities," says  Matthew Mordecki, Jehovah’s Witnesses/Lighthouse.
It will be located off Sterling Mine Road.
“We have our world headquarters about three minutes just down the road from here. That’s 1.5 million square feet. This is about 1.7 million square feet," says Mordecki.
Mordecki says the campus will be environmentally friendly, producing a lot of its own energy.
“We also have things like geothermal wells that will help us with our energy solution. We’ll have our own solar field here that will feed battery back up and have our own microgrid on site," says Mordecki
People who work at the studios will also be able to live on campus in the residences that will be built along with fitness and dining facilities.
The public will also be able to get a peek at their work.
Planning for the project started in 2019. They hope to have it completed by 2026.
