The previous locale of Starbucks at 112 Montague Street has now sat without a commercial tenant since May 2012—soon approaching a year. The coffee shop originally vacated the premises in May 2012 because of roof leaks and plumbing issues, and today, the interior appears in the same condition it was when ‘Bucks moved up the street to 134 Montague.
Broker Massey Knakal is giving the space another push, with a giant new banner that covers the entire second-floor window. The realtor’s webbie listing notes that the property offers 2,500sf on the ground floor and 2,000sf on both the second and basement levels, with “all uses considered.” No price is on the website.
Its listing describes the property as “prime retail space in the much sought after corridor of Montague Street, located in the heart of Brooklyn Heights. Located in an upscale and prominent neighborhood offering historic architecture, Montague Street provides for a short walk to the famous waterfront Promenade, where stunning panoramic views of the lower Manhattan skyline welcomes Brooklyn residents and tourists alike. Montague Street is filled with a rich mix of national and local retailers; providing great food, shopping and community connections.”
It remains hard to believe that there isn’t a suitable tenant for such a primo commercial space… unle$$ it’s truly that prohibitive. (CT)
