Brooklyn’s first J.Crew is coming to Cobble Hill — specifically, the two-story building at 151 Court Street, near Pacific. The Real Deal reports that the clothing retailer plans to take 2,349 square feet over the ground, lower level and second floor. (The asking rent for the entire space was $520,000 annually.)

It appears the popular greengrocer on the corner, Pacific Green, will have to move.
