Williamsburg might gets its own Chelsea Market-type mixed-use development, called theArtisan, according to an email cited by Curbed.

Brokerage Ripco Real Estate said in a mass email that it is looking for tenants to fill about 6,000 square feet of retail space on the basement and ground floor of 109 South 5th Street, between Berry and Bedford avenues. The collection of shops and restaurants will be designed by the Chelsea Market’s architect, Tadao Ando, and an office building that can house approximately 50 companies will sit above the retail space, the email said.

theArtisan’s owner, a “Stier 109 LLC” in city records, is seeking “a creative blend [of tenants] to include a restaurant, cafe, gallery, artisanal market, florist, accessories, craft beer … [and a] wine and liquor boutique,” the message said.

In April, Jamestown Properties, the owner and developer of the Chelsea Market, said they were thinking about transforming the Falchi building, at 31-00 47th Avenue in Long Island City into a similar type of marketplace, as The Real Deal reported.

Jamestown also received city approval to add an additional 285,000 square feet to the actual Chelsea Market, a 1.2 million-square-foot building, between Eighth and Ninth avenues. The City Council unanimously approved the expansion in April. The move had been controversial, with residents arguing that the area did not need additional office space and that construction might damage the landmarked building. [Curbed]Mark Maurer
