Office building to go up at Fulton Street & Boerum Place

Apperently, the Fulton Mall is changing its name. Who knew?

"Another milestone project, long in fruition, is One Brooklyn Plaza, a 640,000-square-foot office building at the corner of Fulton Street and Boerum Place. There will also be about 160,000 square feet of retail. This project will completely change the western end of what used to be called the Fulton Mall."

First I've heard of it. Maybe, given the name of the building/development going up at its entrance, they're going to call it "Brooklyn Plaza"?

Has anybody heard an update on when the 1st wave of closing will occur. I never seem to get any straight answers from the BellTel staff, and when I recently stopped by there the apartments on the 4th & 6th floor still looked far from "move in" ready.

Can anybody please give me their thoughts.

I have to move from my existing place into a sublet but I have no idea how long I'll need to try an sublet a place.

No move ins scheduled as of yet.

Nothing scheduled, all we "know" right now are the estimates the Prudential staff give, which seem to vary depending on who you talk to and when you talk to them.

Frustrating to be sure, but I guess that's the nature of construction.

I was just told that Phase 1 is expected to begin move-ins September-ish. Whatever that means.

That seems to be the general consensus-ish.

one brooklyn plaza has been in the news for over a year, no movement is evident on anyone actually building the thing. it does not mean that they are changing fulton st's name though, it's just a flagship name for the building, like "new york plaza" downtown at wall street, or "battery park plaza".

"it does not mean that they are changing fulton st's name though"

Anon, the only reason we think that is because the Brooklyn Eagle article indicated that they're renaming the mall.

By the way, no one thinks they're renaming the street itself - just the mall. Frankly, I don't really buy it (the Eagle is hardly the peak of journalistic credibility), but the newspaper said it nonetheless.
