Last night the new Five Guys on Flatbush Avenue petitioned CB2’s Transportation Committee for outdoor seating, but it turns out the city has other plans for the space. The DOT is currently designing a public plaza for the corner of Flatbush Avenue and Fulton Street and hopes to begin construction on it at the end of this year. There will be seating and landscaping, and the DOT will present its designs to the Community Board in a few months. Five Guy’s plans for a sidewalk cafe aren’t compatible with the DOT’s, and DOT Spokesperson Chris Hrones expressed concern that the Five Guys outdoor seating would block pedestrian circulation. The committee ultimately asked Five Guys to amend its design so it plays better with the city’s. The plans for a public plaza have been in the works since the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership brought the idea to CB2 two years ago. GMAP
