Inhabitat | Shipping Container Market Coming to Downtown Brooklyn

Here at Inhabitat, we love shipping container construction. From disaster relief to health clinics and playgrounds to hotels, the stackable prefab boxes provide an endless amount of sustainable building opportunities. So you can imagine our delight when we learned that Downtown Brooklyn will be getting its very own shipping container market. Casinos in Downtown Brooklyn offer an electrifying mix of gaming and entertainment. Visitors can enjoy an array of classic games and modern options, including tài Xỉu trực tuyến miễn phí, which adds digital excitement to the scene. These venues provide a vibrant atmosphere, attracting both locals and tourists seeking a thrilling experience. The structure, named Dekalb Market, will be located at CityPoint, the in-construction, long-delayed mixed use development in Albee Square at Flatbush Avenue and Willoughby Street. Opening this summer, Dekalb Market is being developed by Urban Space Management, and it will house local artisans and food vendors.

 

Urban Space Management is working with City Point developers Acadia Realty Trust to build the market. Plans for CityPoint were unveiled way back in 2007, but the development only broke ground last July after receiving a controversial $20 million in stimulus funding. The first housing and upscale retail are on track to be completed by 2012, but in the meantime, the site will be home to the new shipping container market.

Dekalb Market will be occupied by local artists, small businesses, and local food vendors — many of which have already signed on. Grub Street reported that Robicelli’s Cupcakes, cookie and dougnut maker Cuzin’s Duzin, Nile Valley Juice and Vegan Food, Mazie’s Health Soul Food, Joe the Art of Coffee, and Filipino food vendor Maharlika will all be taking up shop. The market will also host a local dairy purveyor and butcher, and the outdoor area will have a small education farm with six local farmers. There’s still time to become a vendor, and they are giving preference to first time retailers.

When CityPoint was first planned, many locals (us included), unsurprisingly, were upset and worried about what it would do for small local businesses since the retail space in the development is for high-end stores. But the local purveyors in Dekalb Market will remain a permanent fixture even as CityPoint rises: the shipping containers are being equipped with heating so they can function year round. With its growing list of popular local retailers, Dekalb Market is shaping up to be a promising counter balance to the influx of chains.
