Although rumors go back to 2011, it’s been official news since early 2012 that T.J.Maxx was going to be setting up shop on the two lower floors of 505 Fulton Street, the 300,000-square-foot mixed-use building in Downtown Brooklyn. Owned by United American Land, the developer with multiple holdings on the Fulton Mall as well as the Municipal Building, the historic building will have more than 200,000 square feet of luxury residential space on the upper floors. When we passed by on Tuesday afternoon, it was apparent that work on the T.J.Maxx space was going full-bore, with windows out and portions of the lower facade temporarily removed for repair. The landmarked Romanesque Revival structure is also known as the Offerman Building. For some history on the building, click here. For a closeup of the current construction work, see below.
