We posted on our Twitter page last week that the retail space on 76 Front Street is being prepared for two retail spaces. As of yesterday, the leases were signed to two business familiar to those who live in Dumbo:
- 72 Front Street (2,000sqft) – Journey Home is relocating from 166 Water St.
- 76 front Street (2,200sqft) – PS Bookshop is relocating from 145A Front St.
Both businesses are located in the 68 Jay Street building, and the new Front Street location will probably give them more foot traffic on the corner of Washington and Front. According to the leasing director we spoke to, Journey home should be ready for move-in around November and PS Bookshop will be ready in December. Other recent 68 Jay Street retail level changes include Egg Baby signing a lease on the corner of Jay and Front St and NOS Boutique opening up a store on Jay St. Wonk, which is located at 68 Jay St is moving to its Williamsburg location on October 1.
