If you’re on the hunt for a retail space for your business, how about this cozy and quaint pop-up shop in DeKalb Avenue station in Fort Greene? The MTA and marketing company The Storefront are offering up the underground space for lease, daily, weekly or monthly occupancy starting immediately. The 96-square-foot space in a highly-trafficked location could be yours for just $2,676 a month.
The MTA has already facilitated the transformation of one former news kiosk at the Lorimer G and L station in Williamsburg into the Newsstand, a shop selling independent media and art prints with occasional artist performances. The kiosk in the DeKalb Avenue station sees tremendous foot traffic – around 17,791 commuters pass through the station daily – making the spot extremely desirable.
The MTA hopes to find tenants of the creative persuasion and are seeking “local makers, artists and designers” as their ideal candidates. Regular news stands and food vendors unfortunately will not be considered.
Aside from the DeKalb Avenue spot, the MTA announced six more available pop-up locations: two in Grand Central, two in the 1 train station at 50th Street and one in Woodside at the 61 St.- Woodside station. The DeKalb Avenue station spot is the only currently available in Brooklyn.
