We’ve been wondering what this space would be since the sign above appeared at 306 Malcolm X Boulevard months ago. It looked like a restaurant but we heard it was a real estate development company. Lo and behold, it is — Boaz Gilad’s latest, in fact, Brookland Capital. (He is president.)
Looks like Gilad may have bought the building. In January, it sold for $920,000 to an entity called 306 M X B Realty Corp. When we dropped by recently, there were a dozen or more guys milling around inside a narrow office. A few doors closer to Decatur, construction was under way on a reception area and conference room, below. The reception desk is made of a wood salvaged from old beams, and there is a huge conference table and a chandelier in the back of the space.
Another sign of Bed Stuy’s hotness? GMAP
