Marty Boosts City Point, Court Street Retail


Borough President Marty Markowitz used his State of the Borough address last week to promote several real estate initiatives in the Downtown Brooklyn area. First off, he called upon the city's Department of Finance to vacate its offices at 210 Joralemon Street (across from Borough Hall) to clear the way for some major retail tenants and to commit as one of the anchor tenants at the yet-to-be-built City Point complex where the old Albee Square Mall used to be. “We can open up that corner of Joralemon and Court streets for major retail – solidifying Court Street as a bona fide New York City shopping destination," said Marty. "Which stores would thrive there? How about Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th? It’s all possible." The Brooklyn Downtown Partnership's Joe Chan voiced support for the DOF move. The Beep also did some cheerleading for three of his pet projects, Atlantic Yards, the Loews King Theatre and the proposed Coney Island Amphitheatre.
