    Forest City denied the accusations and told The Real Deal that it will fulfill its commitments to the community. [more]

    UPDATED: 4:26 p.m., July 10: A lot across the street from the Barclays Center, with frontage on Dean and Bergen streets, just sold for $6 million, Brownstoner reported. The new owner plans to conduct a complete renovation that will result in 16,500 square feet of retail space and 11,000 square feet of office space, a spokesperson told The Real Deal. 

    Neil Dolgin and Grant Dolgin of Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates represented the seller, the Ulano Corporation, while Robert Klein, also of KDA, represented the buyer, Singh, in the transaction.

    The parcel includes a warehouse at 592-594 Dean Street, along with a parking lot that spans 587-597 Bergen Street. Excluded from the deal was a one-story warehouse at 606 Dean Street, which backs up to the parking lot.

    According to a proposed rendering cited by Brownstoner, developers were looking for capital to purchase the site and to “conduct needed renovation and construction of the property.” The materials noted that the entire project would run $8 million.

    At the time of writing, no plans had yet been filed with the Department of Buildings. [Brownstoner]Julie Strickland

    Stribling & Associates is expanding into Brooklyn, but its pick for the new office, in Boerum Hill near the Barclays Center, is somewhat unusual: a former furniture shop at 384 Atlantic Avenue, the Wall Street Journal reported.

  • Barclays Center

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg highlighted the 2,000 jobs created by the Barclays Center in his State of the City speech yesterday, but the bulk of these positions are part-time and without benefits, DNAinfo reported. In fact, only 100 are full-time. However, most Barclays Center employees are union members of SEIU 32BJ, according to Forest City Ratner spokesperson Ashley Cotton. “There are no health benefits because they’re part-time employees,” Cotton told DNAinfo. “However, we feel, and hopefully they do too, that there’s a benefit to being part of a union.” [more]
