The Fort Greene Association published an update on all things Downtown Brooklyn and noted that City Point has just about wrapped on Phase One of development. The 50,000-square-foot retail building just needs some tenants now! Still no word on opening dates or what retailers will be taking space, but the building is scheduled to open this spring. As for the next-door Albee Square Plaza, the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership issued an RFP “seeking proposals for a temporary (moveable, but not mobile) subconcession at Albee Square.” Proposals for food and beverage concepts are due March 23rd.
