A new rendering has appeared at 27-35 Jackson Avenue for “Jackson Plaza,” advertising ground floor retail between 1,800 and 6,000 square feet of available space.
The building used to be occupied by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
A DOB permit for “PROPOSE[D] CHANGE OF USE ON PARTIAL FIRST FLOOR FROM OFFICE TO RETAIL STORES” was approved back in July, 2019.1 The former ground floor brick façade will be replaced by a transparent windowed façade, as seen in the rendering below. Plywood fencing is currently covering the ground floor space.
DY Realty Group is handling the leasing of the new spaces.
Here’s more details from New York YIMBY, who spotted the original permits back in 2015:2
The two floors feature ceiling heights of 18 and 14 feet, respectively, and the building offers 170 feet of frontage along Jackson Avenue and 75 feet along Hunter Street. Office tenants will fill the top two floors, which will remain the same. The lower floors will get a new glass facade and a renovation to suit the new tenants.
