StreetLevel: Schermerhorn Supermarket Deal Falls Through

Well, this one’s not a crowd pleaser. Turns out plans to put a 12,000-sf supermarket into the biggest ground-floor space at the State Renaissance Court building have been tabled. The building’s owners have instead cut up the space and rented half of it to the Red Cross; the other 6,000 square feet are still on the market along with four other smaller (around 1,000 sf) storefronts. Those small spaces are being eyed by “neighborhood businesses” like liquor stores and pizza parlors, says State Renaissance Court developer Hesky Brahimy. The would-be supermarket owner was a retail novice, says Brahimy. The developer still hopes to attract some sort of gourmet grocery to the remaining large space in the building. “A grocery is what’s most needed around here,” says Brahimy, though “we’ll entertain all offers.”
