Court Street Listing Looks Like Union Market Is Already There


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!

now that I am better I plan to photograph the many Brooks certified walks you have given us in recent months. Man, I can't wait.
Thanks for your prayers and support.

Union Market > MacDonalds and Blockbuster...

Good for them!
