Here's Park Slope has a scoop on Michael Pintchik's retail plans for a stretch of Flatbush between Sterling & Eighth Avenue. These will involve the overhaul of four of his properties, including the former Blockbuster space & a building occupied by a dialysis center. This part of the avenue, we are promised, will turn from "worst to first". Pintchik is (in)famous for his development of Bergen at Flatbush, (see Jeremiah Moss's Bobos on Bergen for an astute analysis of the block), and his new tenants further north will include a Weight Watchers & a "great restaurant .... something that everyone's familiar with and that everyone will love". Hmm. What could that mean?
