Background

On October 8, 2021, the Economic Development Authority (EDA) became owners of the properties located at 7944-7996 Brooklyn Blvd N. The properties include a vacant CVS which the EDA now owns the land underneath, a liquor store at the south end of the property, and the Northwind Plaza strip mall which is home to 10 existing businesses. The purchase of these spaces will allow the EDA to work with the existing businesses on the property to ensure their rents stay accessible as property values in the area increase. Along with stabilizing the property for existing tenants, the EDA will be developing a Small Business Center in the former Xperience Fitness space located at 7970 Brooklyn Blvd N. . Sign up below to tell us more about your business, receive more information about the space, and to be notified when space is available. Once complete the space will feature coworking style offices and limited retail that will provide accessibly priced space to businesses and entrepreneurs in the community.

The Small Business Center is the product of community’s vision for a place that caters to micro businesses and entrepreneurs in a way that is culturally relevant, accessible, and flexible. Construction for the project is tentatively scheduled to begin in winter 2022 with completion planned for late fall 2022. If you’re interested in learning more about Small Business Center including how you can reserve space for your business, please contact Daniela Lorenz at Daniela.lorenz@brooklynpark.org.
