DOBBS FERRY, NY—Grocer Brooklyn Market is coming to Westchester County.

The specialty retailer has filed for building permits and plans to open a new location at the new Rivertowns Square development off the Saw Mill River Parkway in Dobbs Ferry.

The Williamsburg, Brooklyn-based retailer plans to open a new 18,000-square-foot store at the Rivertowns Square development by the end of this year. The new store deal was announced by Greenstone Realty, the exclusive leasing agent for Rivertowns Square. With the deal, Greenstone Realty reports that Rivertowns Square is now 85% leased.

“We had the opportunity to choose from several supermarkets and gourmet food stores to join the other great tenants at Rivertowns Square, but we chose Brooklyn Market because they consistently demonstrated their ability to deliver quality at every turn and provide customers with incredible service in all of their eight locations,” says Martin Berger, managing member of Saber Dobbs Ferry and the center’s owner/developer.

The Brooklyn Market’s Dobbs Ferry location will feature full butcher, seafood and gourmet counters with specialties from its Brooklyn and on-premises kitchens. The store will also offer a full selection of gluten-free products.

In addition to Brooklyn Market, Rivertowns Square includes an iPic Theater and City Perch restaurant at iPic Theaters, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Chop’t Creative Salads and Ulta Beauty & Cosmetics, plus a new Hilton Hotel, which is expected to open by year’s end. More than a dozen new stores and restaurants are currently under construction and The Danforth luxury residences will be ready for occupancy soon, Greenstone Realty reports.

Rivertowns Square is a new mixed-use development at the Lawrence Street exit of the Saw Mill River Parkway (exit 16). The project is being developed adjacent to the existing Chauncey Square, which includes New York Sports Club, Starbucks, GNC, Verizon and Oasis Day Spa.

“With the growth of e-commerce, Rivertowns Square is exactly what retail shopping centers will try to be in the future—driven by great food, great entertainment and great hospitality. We have the perfect anchors with iPic Cinema and their City Perch restaurant, Hilton’s Garden Inn hotel—and now the incredible Brooklyn Market,” says Robert Greenstone, chairman of Greenstone Realty.
