The Brooklyn Paper uncovers a pretty spectacular ad for a new tenant for an entertainment complex across from the Barclays Center. The landlord, who was originally a major opponent of the Atlantic Yards project is seeking a "'Dave and Busters' type entertainment/Restaurant operation" for his 35,000 square foot space, promising 80,000 customers a night.
He writes, of the three story space, "How about neon or digital behind glass, aimed at the crowds streaming into the Barclays Arena? Our architect calls it a 'Sexy space'....we call it a freakin GOLDMINE for the right user!" Needless to say, the neighbors are not pleased.
