All paths leading to Brooklyn’s Pioneer Building

The Pioneer Building at 41 Flatbush Avenue is offering 20,000 s/f of retail within a three-minute walk of 13 different subway lines.

Located at the intersection of the BAM Cultural District, Fort Greene, and Boerum Hill in Downtown Brooklyn, the Pioneer Building is a ten-story, 260,000 s/f Class A office building at the nexus of the most comprehensive transportation point in New York City.

The nearby Atlantic Terminal-Barclays Center subway station alone offers access to nine different subway lines, plus four others within a three-minute walking radius.

The space is near the Fulton Street Mall and Atlantic Terminal Mall, as well as several other national retailers in the area. Additionally, over 11,000 residential units and 1,200 hotel rooms have been recently completed or are in the pipeline for the surrounding area.


Owned by Quinlan Development Group and Building & Land Technology (BLT), the space will be available for possession this summer.

CPEX’s Brooklyn Retail Leasing Team, consisting of Ryan Condren, George Danut, and Keat Chew, is exclusively marketing the available retail. Targeted uses include gourmet markets, cafés, fitness operators, traditional retail, and restaurants or gastro pubs.

“Within a less than four block radius of the Pioneer Building, over two million square feet of new development and nearly 3,000 new residential units are coming online. This is a rare and unique opportunity for retailers to capitalize on one of Brooklyn’s areas of greatest density,” said Condren.

“The confluence of residential density, commuter and pedestrian traffic, and existing 24/7 amenities in the area make the Pioneer Building part of Brooklyn’s newest epicenter.”

Quinlan and BLT purchased the property in March 2015 and are completing a $30 million redevelopment to convert the storage facility into a 24/7 Class A office building with ground floor retail.
