Interior photos have been added to the listings for 341 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, the eight-story, 63-unit rental building that will sport Crown Heights’ first Starbucks, even though leasing won’t start until July 10. Curbed was the first to spot the photos, which look pretty good, in our opinion. The Meshberg Group-designed development will also have a Capital One branch on the ground floor.


Apparently the rumors are true: Starbucks is joining Capital One in the ground floor space at 341 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, according to DNAinfo. This will be the coffee giant’s first store east of Flatbush Avenue. Most of its Brooklyn locations are concentrated in Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn, along with two in Park Slope and several scattered around Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst and Flatbush.

We don’t know what they’re paying for their 4,500 square feet of space, but the asking rent for Capital One was $100 a square foot. Both the bank and the coffee retailer are slated to open in the fall. And the eight-story, 63-unit building is ready to start leasing in July with rents ranging from $2,575 for a one-bedroom to $3,700 for a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment.

We wonder what this will mean for the other Franklin Avenue coffee retailers, which include Pulp and Bean (two locations), Little Zelda, Breukelen Coffee House, as well as nearby Crosby Coffee and Glass Shop. What impact do you think the new coffee shop will have on the neighborhood?

A “now leasing” sign has gone up on the new building at 341 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, but no listings have appeared yet. is handling rentals in the building, which was originally supposed to be rentals, then switched to condos, then back to rentals again earlier this year.

The eight-story building has 65 apartments and was designed by Meshberg Group. At one time, Gene Kaufman was the architect, but the property changed hands.

Capital One Bank will move into 3,000 square feet of the ground floor commercial space, as previously reported. In March, a second, unnamed business was in talks to rent the rest of it.



Yesterday morning DNAinfo reported that the section of the mural surrounding the development site on Eastern Parkway and Franklin Avenue was in the process of being taken down. The photo above shows what the Eastern Parkway section of the site looked like as of around 2:30 p.m. yesterday. The mural was supposed to come down starting Tuesday, but that did not happen. The latest rendering for the 62-unit project, which was recently purchased by new investors and may see the beginning of construction in earnest sometime soon, can be seen here, though it’s possible that it is out of date. The section of the mural on the Franklin Avenue side of the site is still intact. While some in the community no doubt feel sad about the mural being removed, it is terribly exciting that a long-stalled hole in the ground will one day—hopefully sooner rather than later—be the site of new construction in which families can live.

The empty lot at 341 Eastern Parkway where a development has been slated to rise since 2007 is now for sale. According to Crain’s, the owners of the 4,000-square-foot lot aren’t asking a specific price but are seeking bids by the end of the month. The site has already been approved for a 77,000-square-foot, 8–story development with 63 units. As the article points out, demand is definitely up in the neighborhood, so perhaps a new developer will swoop in quickly.
