Signage for Pre-K appears at 27-35 Jackson Avenue

Back in January, signage appeared for retail availability at 27-35 Jackson Avenue, and last week more signage appeared at the space.1 In November, Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer announced that a new 180-seat pre-kindergarten center would be opening in the space by fall of this year.2

Pre-K signage has now appeared on the building, announcing pre-registration for fall of 2017 for children that were born in 2013, as seen in the photo below. More information can be found by emailing 30Q389[at]schools.nyc.gov.

Signage appears for Sapps with ‘late August, early September’ opening targeted

Permanent signage has appeared at the future home of Japanese eatery “Sapps” at 27-26 Jackson Avenue as the restaurant gets closer to opening.

“We’re looking at a late August or September opening,” owner Shih Lee said to The Court Square Blog over the weekend.

The project is being done by Lee and Eric Lehrer, and Lehrer shared photos of construction on the interior back in March.1 More recently, construction crews removed the plywood fence that covered the site back in June to reveal the outside facade.2

“Just like Sapporo East had a great run, we want to take it to the next level,” Lehrer said in an earlier interview with The Court Square Blog.3 “Court Square has been around before the boom and the 5 Pointz was a big part of that. We want to integrate the history and character of the neighborhood into Sapps. I think it’s part of our philosophy to remember the good things from the past and hold on to it and take it into the future. We want to remember all the good it did for the neighborhood.”
