A restaurant, Sephora, an Apple store….so far, none of the rumors have panned out. The prominent but somewhat awkward triangle of land at 182 Flatbush in Park Slope has remained empty since the owners of Triangle Sports shut up shop after 96 years in business and sold the property to RedSky Capital for $4.1 million in 2013.
A stair and catwalks wend around a three-story core branded with giant corporate logos on the sides. (The images show headphones, a cartoon character, and basketball players — presumably signifying brands along the lines of Sony, Disney and Nike.)
Another option shows the 4,790-square-foot building doubling in size thanks to a three-floor addition (each floor of the current building is about 1,600 square feet).
An old setup from broker TerraCRG shows the stucco-over-brick building back when it was still Triangle Sports with its prominent cornice and wrap-around signage.
Funds permitting, one could re-create the 19th century details as well. The building may date to the 1850s, according to a 1917 Brooklyn Eagle article.
