Since December, word has been circulating about Bushwick's planned retail market that will eat an entire block bound by Bogart Street, Harrison Place, Morgan Avenue, and Ingram Street. The Massey Knakal broker marketing the property has described it as a "grittier Chelsea Market." Now, said broker has added the above rendering to the mix, showing what this magical mall could be?a jazzed up warehouse with an unidentified tower plopped on top. Bushwick Daily spotted the marketing flyer, which notes that the ground floor offers 80,000-square-feet and an addition could add the same amount.
The site is currently occupied by a single-story warehouse and located in an M1-2 manufacturing zone, which allows for hotels and for the construction of a tower like the one pictured in the rendering. However, the rendering is not representative of what the site will be. The broker is just trying to put ideas in people's heads. And it seems like it's working?supposedly several hotel developers have expressed interest and a few retail tenants have already signed leases.
