‘Brooklyn Heights Plaza’ At Court & Joralemon Solicits Major Retailer

It was more than two years ago that NYC Mayor Bloomie & BK Borough Prez Markowitz announced a proposal to develop 39,500/sf of retail on the ground & second floors of the Brooklyn Municipal Building at the corner of Court & Joralemon Streets, as city offices were moved to upper floors.

Now, the newly renamed “Brooklyn Heights Plaza” has posted a giant “Coming Soon: Brooklyn’s Retail Future” sign, via Ripco Real Estate, with scaffolding in place to begin converting the space.

The realtor promotes the commercial site as such: “Brooklyn Heights Plaza sits in the middle of the best income demographic for the entire borough. Neighboring retailers include Starbucks, MAC, Trader Joe’s, Urban Outfitters, Barney’s CoOp, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor Loft.” Ripco’s managing brokers are Peter Ripka and Jason Pennington.

As BHB reported in December 2010, the Brooklyn Municipal Building, designed by McKenzie, Voorhees & Gmelin and completed in 1927, was deemed “a fine piece of design” in Francis Morrone’s iconic “An Architectural Guidebook to Brooklyn.” (Photos: CT/Bottom: Claude Scales)

    I thought it had already been announced that it was a Sephora…?

    After the ridiculously stupid and offensive comments that the CEO of Whole Foods made I will never walk into one of their establishments.

    I still wonder how much longer until Brooklyn’s first Apple store. There’s still an empty lot on Atlantic Ave. (a block away from Trader Joe’s).

    As for the possibility of a Whole Foods, I think they’re still planning to build on 3rd Ave, despite the flooding from Sandy, so I don’t think we’ll get a WF in the area anytime soon.

    I found the “Fascism” remark kind of comical; most anti Obama-care critics accuse it of being Socialism. Anyway, Whole Foods is a total ripoff.
