The Boerum Hill post office, which is relocating from 542 Atlantic Avenue, will not be moving into a newly renovated warehouse at 594 Dean Street, across the street from a big piece of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, after all. A few weeks ago, Crain’s reported that a coworking company, Industrious, had signed a lease for a 19,000 square foot space at the Dean Street warehouse, pictured in the rendering above.
So what happened to the post office? Rob Perris, District Manager for Community Board 2, told the Atlantic Yards Report the postal service switched plans because it “discovered belatedly that the proposed location isn’t in 11217.” (Seems kind of strange the post office didn’t know the zip code.) We’ll keep you posted when we hear what the new location will be.

Update: This story originally said the post office would be moving to 290 Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope. The owner of that retail condo, Janet Yagoda, contacted us to say our story is incorrect. When we asked her if she is talking to the post office and a lease has not yet been signed, she said “no comment.”
