As L train anxiety sweeps North Brooklyn, hospitality groups and retailers have turned their attention to the booming South Side of Bushwick. The Central Avenue Corridor is benefiting from its JMZ proximity and the influx of residential and office tenants entering the area via Savannah Capital’s 95 Evergreen, the 364 Unit Rheingold Development Site, and Cayuga Capital’s 163 units complex on Bushwick Avenue, while remaining only a short 10 minute walk to both the Morgan and Jefferson L train. We highlight two unique listings represented by the MSNYC Retail team below.
173 Jefferson Street
This former Church has been acquired and is being re-positioned as a USE GROUP 6, liquor license eligible space with approximately 2500 square feet of ground level retail space with an accessory 2500sf legal use group 6 basement space. The rear 1000sf sits below no residential or building above making for easy ventilation or potential skylight/indoor-outdoor seating.This space presents itself as Bushwick’s next destination bar or restaurant, the landlord’s desired ‘best use’ for the property.
86 Central Ave
This single story warehouse, now a mecca for local street artists looking to make their mark on the neighborhood sits on the corner of Jefferson and Central. With approved plans to convert into three storefronts, the corner space is the only one remaining for lease with the other two taken from local businesses looking for expansion opportunity. There is potential for rooftop seating and the owner is willing to partner with his future tenant to make this space one of Bushwick’s most unique.
