Folks in South Brooklyn have been excited of late that the big, former Blockbuster Video site on Court Street is not going to become a McDonald's—as was feared—but a Union Market grocery store.
On June 5, Brownstoner reported that the property was sold off for $3.7 million to a firm called Broadmill Development. But what's going on here? Now, Massey Knakel Realty has the space listed for a whopping $5.495,000! "50 feet of frontage on Court Street. Excellent Cobble Hill retail corridor location," goes the description. "9,000 square feet of additional air rights. New 15 year lease with 10% rental increases every 3 years."
So Broadmill is flipping the property? With Union Market in it? According to the picture above (shown on the Massey Knakel site), the grocery store is already there!
