The outdoor Albee Square Public Plaza off Fulton Street Mall in Downtown Brooklyn has its sights set on becoming a foodie outpost. The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is searching for a single market operator to select a number of food, wine, beer and crafts vendors to fill more than dozen spaces within the 27,000-square-foot space.
Kevin Tolan, Director of BID Services & Programs for the Partnership, tells DNAInfo.com that it’s looking to “activate Downtown Brooklyn’s public spaces while supporting local vendors,” with fresh food, prepared foods, and arts & crafts.
Albee Square Plaza at Bond & Fulton Streets celebrated its renovated completion a year ago, June 24. It is at the center of a burgeoning shopping district that includes retailers Aldo, Macy’s, and Aeropostale, along with incoming H&M, T.J. Maxx and Express. The locale also buttresses the mammoth City Point multi-use project, which will comprise retail, residential and Brooklyn’s first Century 21 clothing outlet.
Market operator applications are due August 6 with a pre-bid information session July 15 at the Fulton Mall Improvement Association’s offices.
