Brooklyn Might Get Its Very Own 'Wichcraft

The newly-chosen architects for the last undeveloped property in the Downtown Brooklyn-BAM Cultural District just released a set of renderings for the project, and they include plans for this 2,700-square-foot Craft restaurant. Judging by the font in the image, it looks like it could be a 'Wichcraft rather than a Craft proper, but only time will tell. Either way, this will be Tom Colicchio's first venture into Brooklyn.

Construction on the new development, which will go up on Lafayette Avenue between Rockwell and Ashland Places, is slated to start mid 2015.
UPDATE: A rep sends word that this will indeed be a 'Wichcraft, not one of the other Craft restaurants. She also confirms what owner Jeffrey Zurofsky tells Grub Street: this is just an early proposal, but "there's nothing firmed up ... there's no lease."
