Danny Meyer’s second Shake Shack outpost in Brooklyn will open next month at 1 Old Fulton Street in Dumbo.

Community Board 2’s land use committee gave the green light for a small sidewalk cafe in front of the burger restaurant’s new spot on the corner of Water and Old Fulton streets near Brooklyn Bridge Park. The 3,200-square-foot space will hold four tables and eight seats on the Old Fulton Street side, where Shake Shack has already installed signing. Two Trees Management, which owns the space, asked $125 per square foot, according to previous reports.

The outpost marks the second Brooklyn locale of Danny Meyer’s popular burger joint. The other Shake Shack is located in Downtown Brooklyn at 409 Fulton Street. A third is currently under construction at 170 Flatbush Avenue near the Barclays Center.
