A roundup of new bars and restaurants planned for the neighborhood:
At 420 Troutman Street (between Wyckoff and St. Nicholas), Hugo McCloud has filed with the City to convert part of the former factory space to the “420 Cafe”, a small eating and drinking establishment with an occupancy of 26. This space was most recently occupied by AWS Fabrication, which has moved down the street to 389 Troutman.
Up the block Troutman Holdings is converting part of 423 Troutman to an eating and drinking establishment with an occupancy of 74. This building - formerly owned by the George Hirn refrigerated truck company - is across the street from the new 500-person event space being developed in another former Hirn building.
Nearby at 234 Starr Street (between Wyckoff and Irving), developers have filed to convert part of a former manufacturing building to a 240-person eating and drinking establishment with a roof deck.
Finally, several blocks southwest at 985 Flushing Avenue near Central Avenue, part of the former Marcy Supply Home Improvement store is being redeveloped as an eating and drinking establishment. According to a Massey Knackal press release from October the other half of the former store will be redeveloped as a bookstore.
