Atlantic Ave. P.O. moving to Flatbush Ave. (Brownstoner)
"The Boerum Hill post office is relocating from 542 Atlantic Avenue to 290 Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope, according to the Atlantic Yards Report. Last we heard, the post office was going to move into a newly renovated warehouse at 594 Dean Street, across the street from a big piece of Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park. But a few weeks ago, Crain’sreported that a coworking company, Industrious, had signed a lease for a 19,000 square foot space at the Dean Street warehouse.
So what happened to the post office? Rob Perris, District Manager for Community Board 2, told AYR the postal service switched plans because it “discovered belatedly that the proposed location isn’t in 11217.” (Seems kind of strange the post office didn’t know the zip code.) The new space is a former Chase bank branch in the ground floor of a condo building between Prospect Place and Park Place, above."
