Lowdown: We've been watching this old industrial building since it was gutted and now we know thatit was once a Polish babka bakery run by Sophia Zablowski. This is because the babka baker has become part of the marketing spin for the development. ("Authentic Loft Living Arrives in Brooklyn!") The windows have been removed, the interior is being gut renovated and those shiny luxe penthouses with terraces you see in the rendering are being added to the top. The building is being marketed as "within three blocks of the coveted three," which are Bedford Ave., the L Train and McCarren Park, which may be the first time recently we've heard the L referred to with a word that doesn't start with F. Coveted?
