Bushwick is a neighborhood badly in need of commercial space. The neighborhood is booming but large sections of this mecca for artists and free-thinkers still consist of dilapidated warehouses.
Enter 65 Porter Avenue. The longtime home of Voila Bakeries was purchased in 2014 to be converted into street-level commercial spaces ranging from 620 to 5,000 square feet. Each space will feature 18-foot ceilings, glass frontage, and brand-new plumbing and electrical. There is also the possibility of adding mezzanine space or rooftop add-ons.
Situated right between the Morgan Avenue and Jefferson Street L stations, mere blocks away from Roberta’s, the unofficial hub of the neighborhood, this area has been exploding in terms of residential growth. Now is the time for commercial tenants to take advantage. There’s enough demand that bars and restaurants in the area are already doing well. But with this new commercial property at 65 Porter Avenue, there’s plenty of space for the types of enterprising businesses that make Brooklyn what it is.
The developers behind the building see it as a potential home for businesses organic to the neighborhood. Artisanal food vendors. Hyperlocal restaurants. A venue or an event space for up-and-coming artists or bands. There’s even the option of converting the roof into an urban farm. Brooklyn start-ups catering to local, ethical customers. A destination for visitors to the neighborhood.
With views of Manhattan and an undeniably hip, artistic vibe, this is an area that will not stay undeveloped long.
