Downtown Brooklyn’s Albee Square Aims To Become Foodie Outpost

The outdoor Albee Square Public Plaza off Fulton Street Mall in Downtown Brooklyn has its sights set on becoming a foodie outpost. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is searching for a single market operator to select a number of food, wine, beer and crafts vendors to fill more than dozen spaces within the 27,000-square-foot space.

Kevin Tolan, Director of BID Services & Programs for the Partnership, tells that it’s looking to “activate Downtown Brooklyn’s public spaces while supporting local vendors,” with fresh food, prepared foods, and arts & crafts.

Albee Square Plaza at Bond & Fulton Streets celebrated its renovated completion a year ago, June 24. It is at the center of a burgeoning shopping district that includes retailers Aldo, Macy’s, and Aeropostale, along with incoming H&M, T.J. Maxx and Express. The locale also buttresses the mammoth City Point multi-use project, which will comprise retail, residential and Brooklyn’s first Century 21 clothing outlet.

Market operator applications are due August 6 with a pre-bid information session July 15 at the Fulton Mall Improvement Association’s offices.

    Am I wrong or isn’t (wasn’t?) there a Century 21 store in Bay Ridge? I’m hardly around there but could swear there was one a few years ago.

    There is indeed a Century 21 in Bay Ridge.

    I belive the Century 21 on 86 St. in Bay Ridge is the ‘original’ location…. it’s been there since the ’70s….

    It sounds great.

    I always hope that someone with an eye for beauty is hidden among all those with an eye for commerce, and that person insists that there are plenty of trees planted for shade, oxygen, beauty, and sound absorption!
