Muss Development has completed the final phase of Downtown Brooklyn’s Restaurant Row with the opening of Rocco’s Tacos this month.
With five locations in Florida and now its first in New York City, Rocco’s Tacos serves Mexican cuisine.
The restaurant chain’s multi-million dollar, new 14,500 s/f location at 339 Adams Street is the last piece to Muss Development’s redeveloped retail strip, which includes the 40,000 s/f, adjacent retail condo at 345 Adams Street — a former city owned-and-occupied office space converted into a high-end retail offering.
The retail condo is now home to culinary tenants Hill Country Market and Hill Country Chicken, Panera Bread, Orange Leaf, and Potbelly. There is also a Shake Shack located across the street. “The completion of this retail strip attests to our ongoing commitment to the remarkable and extraordinary evolution of Downtown Brooklyn. The vision we had for the neighborhood is now a wonderful reality and today is cause for celebration,” said Joshua L. Muss, president of Muss Development.
“Downtown Brooklyn has become one of the country’s most sought-after work/live/play neighborhoods through extensive redevelopment and repositioning, the emergence of the Barclays Center, and the arrival of NYU-Poly’s Center for Urban Science and Progress.”
Added Muss principal Jason Muss: “Our work on Downtown Brooklyn’s Restaurant Row was part of our larger campaign of retail investment throughout New York City.
“The completion of this retail strip is a major milestone. We are extremely happy with the outcome and continue to identify and capitalize on other retail opportunities.”
