Could a glass wedge grow in Brooklyn?

The old Triangle Sports building at 182 Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope could soon give way to something very, very new — a glowing glass wedge.

In 2014, RedSky Capital — which has a portfolio of properties in Williamsburg and counts Brooklyn’s first Apple store among its tenants  — picked up the shuttered building for $4.1 million, and it has remained unoccupied ever since. Rumors of big name tenants like Sephora and Apple for the triangle have yet to pan out — but now, it seems something even bolder could occupy the site.

Brownstoner got their hands on renderings this week that show a futuristic all-glass wedge on the property. Few other details about the future of the site are out there, but we do know that RedSky is hunting for a single tenant.

“Right now we’re focused on working to maximize the space,” RedSky vice president Shari Neissani told DNAinfo. “It’s a unique shape but we’re used to thinking outside of the box.”

Despite the boldness of the rendering, no plans have been filed yet.
