The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership wants to make over Flatbush from the Fulton Mall to Barclays Center, DNAinfo reported. The group is asking local politicians for their support and help drumming up about $7,000,000 for the project. The improvements would extend Phase I of the Flatbush Avenue streetscape project, which is now complete (and cost $23,000,000) from Dekalb to 4th Avenue.
Upgrades would include new sidewalks, benches, plantings, streetlights, and a new median. Phase I of the project brought similar changes to Flatbush Avenue Extension between Tillary and Fulton, pictured above. The DOT has been working on streetscape improvements on the other side of Flatbush in Park Slope since 2010.
