Starbucks Deems Fulton Street Mall a Worthy New Locale

While it’s certainly no problem getting a morning java fix in Brooklyn Heights, a new Starbucks is coming to Fulton Mall, at 348 Fulton Street, next to Bank of America and across from Shake Shack. Obviously, the ubiquitous chain is demonstrating belief in the rapidly gentrifying Downtown Brooklyn nabe.

In May, the Heights’ Bucks relocated to 134 Montague Street from its former location at 112 Montague. Meanwhile, The Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports that the new location has posted signage and appears to be nearly ready to open inside. It’s located in a one-story building that most recently was home to men’s clothing store Porta Bella, and has 1,334 square feet of floor space.

Already over the past month or so, the area’s onetime primary shopping mecca has welcomed the Gap Factory Store, with Century 21, TJ Maxx, H&M and the massive multi-use City Point on the way.

    Unbelievable. But hey… I guess it was just a matter of time…

    There’s already a Starbucks in MetroTech on Jay St near NYU-Poly and another at Court and Joralemon. This is going to be about 500 yards from either of those.

    It will still do well I reckon. I know others don’t, but I love the gentrification currently going on on Fulton Street.

    Why is the opening of a Starbucks newsworthy?

    This is a neighborhood blog not the NY Times. Any new retail business opening up is worthy of mention but in this case even more so because a Starbucks opening is emblematic of the changes happening on Fulton Street.
