The Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation (BNYDC) announced Tuesday the launch of leasing for 130,000 square feet of manufacturing and creative office space at Building 212, part of a project in the works at Admiral’s Row, formerly the site of a row of 19th century wood frame homes that once housed naval officers. Along with the announcement came new renderings of the five story building that will be home to a much-anticipated Wegmans supermarket scheduled to open this fall.

Everyone rejoice! East Coast foodie favorite Wegmans is finally coming our way, inking a deal to open its first ever NYC location in the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The New York Times reports that the supermarket giant will take up a whopping 74,000 square feet, anchoring the new shopping complex slated to replace Admiral’s Row. Wegmans beat out three other proposals vying to enter the scene but was ultimately chosen because of the lack of affordable grocers in the area, and the store’s commitment to bring 600 jobs to the area, 200 of which will be full-time—double what other proposals promised to deliver.
