The Boerum Hill post office’s new home will be located at 594 Dean Street in Prospect Heights, a former warehouse that’s being converted to retail space. The new location, between Carlton and Vanderbilt Avenues, is about a 10-minute walk away from the old one at 542 Atlantic Avenue, according to Postal Service officials quoted in a story in The Brooklyn Paper. We found the above rendering for the new post office on the construction fence; click through the jump to see the building under construction.
The converted building will have 20,712 square feet of commercial space and 4,300 square feet for a community facility, according to alteration permits filed last year.
Post office officials also confirmed the Pratt Station post office will move three blocks away to a new condo building at 609 Myrtle Avenue at Kent Street, as previously reported.
