Mayor Michael Bloomberg will pick Albert Laboz’s United American Land to redevelop the Brooklyn Municipal Building in Downtown Brooklyn as a retail destination, sources told NY1.

The city has been in the process of relocating its offices in some prime Downtown Brooklyn buildings, including the municipal building at 210 Joralemon Street, in an effort to spur retail growth in the area and cut costs. Borough President Marty Markowitz had hoped for an Apple Store in the 37,000-square-foot space, but according to NY1, a high-end supermarket or furniture store is the most likely tenant for the space.

The city also has plans for retail at 65 Court Street and 345 Adams Street.

Laboz, who is chairman of the Fulton Street Mall Improvement Association, is also building an H&M store and 100 loft rentals at 497 and 505 Fulton Street. [NY1]
