SHEEPSHEAD BAY – Starbucks will take over space previously occupied by AT&T dealer, and plan to open the 1,525-square-foot space in the first quarter of 2020, expanding your options for a decent cup of coffee in the neighborhood.
Earlier this week, Muss Development LLC, who developed 1 Brooklyn Bay in partnership with AvalonBay on Sheepshead Bay Road, signed the paperwork for a long term lease with Starbucks Corporation for the Sheepshead Bay Road storefront steps from the B/Q stop.
“Sheepshead Bay has seen a major resurgence in the last twenty years,” said Muss Development President Jason Muss.
“As the residential market continues to boom in this diverse neighborhood, there is an increasing demand for retail services. As the first Starbucks in the area, it will be a great addition to the community and to the residents of 1 Brooklyn Bay.”
Starbucks will sit at the entrance to 1 Brooklyn Bay, Muss’s new Perkins Eastman designed condominium tower and the tallest residential project in South Brooklyn, that offers a plethora of amenities and 2.5 acres of private grounds with a pool, bocce court, barbeque pits, and dog runs.
Asked why Starbucks, Muss said that “they were the best and most in-demand tenant available for the space. Local tenants are well represented on Sheepshead Bay Road – Starbucks adds something currently unavailable in the area and will serve as a great amenity to the neighborhood.”
Despite the many empty storefronts, Sheepshead Bay Road does offer some excellent dining and the New York Times raves about Café Dushanbe, Lagman House and Belarussian Xata. Emmons Avenue, where you can quickly feel like you have arrived in the Mediterranian is not far either, and check out one of their latest additions – Sushi by Bou.
