Jamestown Properties, the owner and developer of the Chelsea Market, will bring a version of the market to the Falchi building in Long Island City. In April, Jamestown indicated that plans were in the works to convert the building, at 31-00 47th Avenue, to a market with artisanal vendors, as The Real Deal reported.

Jamestown has already signed up food purveyors such as Artisanal Premium Cheese to occupy the ground floor of the 638,712-square-foot building, the New York Daily News reported. Representatives for Jamestown declined to comment to the newspaper.

Amy’s Bread — which already has an outpost at the Chelsea Market — is also in talks to take space at the building, according to the Daily News.

“We’re hoping to do it,” owner Amy Scherber told the newspaper. “There’s not enough good food around [Long Island City].”

Jamestown paid a partnership consisting of Joseph Chetrit and principals of the Brooklyn-based commercial brokerage and landlord Kalmon Dolgin Affiliates about $80 million for the property last year. [NYDN]Hiten Samtani
