Century 21 Signs Lease at City Point

The fashion retailer, born in the borough, will open their first Downtown Brooklyn location.

Discount retail chain Century 21 signed a lease at the City Point development, making it the first new department store on Fulton Street in 50 years.

In January, it was reported that for a 50,000-square-feet space in the building, and that Century 21 was expected to follow suit.

The first Century 21 store opened in 1961 in Bay Ridge, with a large flagship location in lower Manhattan. The City Point location will be the company's eighth store.

City Point, when completed, will be two residential towers with 680 units, spanning 1.3 million-square-feet. The development will include 675,000 square feet of retail and commercial space. The project is being built in three phases with construction on the second phase to begin this summer.

When will Century 21 open?

Great question, Sylvia. A source at CityPoint says the store will not open until 2015—when the second phase of the CityPoint project is expected to be completed.

The aesthetic of that building is so off that one has to wonder how the architect (if it was a trained architect) got the job. Hopefully it will be re-sided as soon as the site starts to make a profit.

Is there going to be parking under this property? Target and Century will bring a lot of cars to our neighborhood of small one way streets. I will miss the DeKalb Market, the expanded food offerings are outstanding so far this season!!
