Cushman & Wakefield announced that Mitzi Flexer, Director, and Alan Napack, Senior Director, represented both ownership, Workable City Development, and tenant, the Brooklyn Firefly, in a 3,500 square foot lease for indoor and outdoor restaurant space at 7003 Third Avenue in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
The Brooklyn Firefly, backed by world-renowned artist and Bay Ridge native, Michael “Mr. Kaves” McLeer and Brooklyn restaurateur, Ray Medina, will occupy 2,000 s/f of indoor space and 1,500 s/f of outdoor space in what was formerly the home of well-known eateries, Yellow Hook Grille and Lento’s.
The operators — both Bay Ridge locals — will offer patrons an authentic Brooklyn experience in a casual setting featuring live music and a place for local artists to display artwork. The menu will consist of pizza, beers from area brewers, in addition to a wide range of wines and liquors.
“The location presented the principals with an ideal opportunity to bring an authentic Brooklyn concept back to Bay Ridge, a neighborhood both Kaves and Ray know very well due to their deep roots in the area. The space is located on a high visibility corner and is perfectly suited for a restaurant.” said Napack.
“The Bay Ridge retail market is in the midst of a resurgence and we’re seeing a robust amount of interest, especially when you consider the neighborhood’s value compared to Park Slope and Williamsburg.” said Flexer.
