The Hub Brooklyn
« on: August 13, 2020, 04:55:57 PM »
This project looks AWESOME and what a great location.  This will bring some pedestrian level activity to the heart of the corporate office section of Brooklyn.
Quote
The application shows it could include two food vendor buildings, outdoor courtyard seating, and a design studio with two rooftops for special events.

While it does not specify the food vendor tenants, plans show they could be a coffee shop and street taco shop.

“The HUB is a quaint gathering place composed of open courtyards and covered patios,” a description of the project reads. “It’s a place to meet friends for coffee and artisanal fare, a refuge from the office grind, a spot to refresh after walking the Emerald Trail, perhaps cocktails and al fresco before the evening’s big event.”

Is the HUB site the fenced lot next to Arepa Please?  This will be quite an activation of the corner.
Coincidentally, I was driving into downtown on Park Street this afternoon.  Saw a semi-truck backing into the loading dock at WinLectric, blocking both directions of Park. Will that maneuver still be possible after the road diet?

The definition of infill right here. Watch DDRB complain about the design of a wall facing the six lane Forest Street.

Thanks, Lake.
It would be interesting to see their simulation of sunlight and shadow through the day and year.  I am assuming they did one to make sure they were creating shade in the right places at midday and afternoon.

Regardless of that, right now the thought of sitting outside and eating lunch right now is horrible with the weather. Regardless, please proceed!

I think I'm a bit less heat sensitive than others, but I've been eating outside all summer because of the 'vid, and it hasn't been too bad. River & Post, Mossfire, Memorial Park, Tijuana Flats, Vale, Burrito Gallery, etc. Aside from one incident at Mellow where my Macbook literally shut down to protect itself from melting in the heat, I kinda dig it  ;D

Shame it's so hard to find restaurants with ample outside seating downtown.

10 years ago, you had several waterfront restaurants with outdoor seating. Two levels of them actually. Never would have imagined in 2010 that we'd have significantly less in 2020, considering a national decade long boom period of economic growth.

Add Strings to your rotation.

Shaded outdoor seating with fans, great food & beverages.

^Is Strings open for lunch during the week, do you know?

Always looking for more Springfield options.

Crispy’s is my normal go-to to post up and work during lunch.

Great infill project! If the food hall project comes to fruition then there will be good options in that area for Brooklyn.
