Two stores, a pet boutique and a wine shop, will be the first tenants in retail space at One Brooklyn Bridge Park:
New York Observer: Brooklyn Bridge Bark, a high-end pet boutique, has signed one of the inaugural leases for 1,760 square feet of ground-floor space on Park Drive in a long-term deal. “One Brooklyn Bridge, being right next to the Pier 6 Dog Run in this gorgeous park,” said John Squires, president of Brooklyn Bridge Bark, in a statement, “is a prime location that lends itself to … playful exchange and social activity.”
Meanwhile, Waterfront Wines and Spirit, which specializes in boutique European wines and organic beverages, has leased 1,170 square feet on Joralemon Street in a long-term deal. “The building is an ideal location for a boutique wine store,” said Donald Killinger, a partner in the company along with Maio Martinez.
The Observer article quotes one of the brokers involved in both lease deals as saying there is much interest in the remaining retail spaces, especially those for restaurants.
