Downtown Brooklyn Retail Space

A skyline to remember

Once known for its historic brownstones and landmarks, Downtown Brooklyn now rivals Manhattan in architectural airspace and public improvements thanks to a successful 2004 rezoning effort. This ever-evolving neighborhood houses all of Brooklyn’s landmark civic buildings, the best cheesecake in all of New York City (Junior’s), and Brooklyn's top Downtown Brooklyn commercial retail space including the heavily traversed Fulton Mall retail corridor. Flatbush Avenue cuts through the heart of Downtown Brooklyn and offers residents access to Barclays Center and surrounding areas. 

Downtown Brooklyn has changed dramatically over the past two decades as impressive new condos have reshaped the skyline and brought a fresh mix of people and businesses to an area once known for courthouses, colleges, and office buildings. The Brooklyn Bridge, which connects the neighborhood to Manhattan’s own civic center, serves as a reminder of the area’s rich history. The neighborhood was recently chosen as the location for The Brooklyn Tower, a mixed-use, primarily residential skyscraper that, when completed, will be the first “supertall” structure in the borough.
