Wegmans in Brooklyn Navy Yard Getting Closer to Reality as Signs Go Up

    by

    It’s looking like the highly anticipated Wegmans will actually open in the Brooklyn Navy Yard this fall. A recent stroll past the site showed signage up, hiring banners in place and sidewalks going in.

    According to a Wegmans press release issued in May, the opening day for the store is planned for Sunday, October 27. The 74,000-square-foot store will also include a second-floor bar.

    Plans for a supermarket at the Navy Yard had been discussed at least as far back as 2009, and the proposal went through three RFPs and two other developers over the years. Ultimately, real estate developer Steiner NYC filed plans for the entire complex in 2016.

    The building, one of several under construction at the six-acre former Admiral’s Row site, was designed by S9 architecture and topped out last summer.

    The lone surviving 19th century house from the historic Admiral’s Row is still under cover as restoration work continues. The Timber Shed, the other historic structure incorporated into the development, was disassembled and moved off site until it was reconstructed this spring.
