The original Downtown Brooklyn location of Junior's Most Fabulous Cheesecakes and Desserts is being put on the market by owner Alan Rosen, whose grandfather founded the iconic eatery. But don't worry—Rosen plans to negotiate a deal with the eventual buyer where the restaurant is able to lease the new building's ground floor, retaining its flagship location. In the meantime, Junior's will open another location in the neighborhood, netting twice the cheesecake for DoBro.
Although there is no official asking price, the Post's sources expect the property, which is being marketed by Massey Knakal, to fetch between $45 and $55 million, depending on the terms of Junior's' deal. According to the Daily News, the site has the air rights to allow it to rise over 20 stories.
