Food hall similar to Dekalb food hall that options at different price points...more local businesses and not chains. Good retail stores for clothing don’t exist here either. Or a Trader Joe’s for grocery. Could be a mix of chain and local. In terms of entertainment, I would look at LIC culture lab as a good way to have open air space for concerts. There is no “destination” areas for entertainment here unfortunately yet.

Steinway Street used to be a shopping destination but isn't anymore. Injecting new retail, especially in the part of Steinway that currently has almost zero retail might make all of Steinway a shopping destination again. Since the south part of Steinway has easier access to subways, more people will be coming by mass transit and after they arrive and shop they'll be looking for places to eat throughout the neighborhood.
Seems like a big win to me.

That street needs to be revitalized. It reminds me of downtown Brooklyn 10 years ago and now that area has great movie theaters, food halls, and shopping (retail, grocery, etc).

I would most certainly support this. Would give people an opportunity to live in a newly renovated community w a short commute to Manhattan and at the same time being able to live in similar apartments to Manhattan at lower prices. Also bringing jobs to the community is a huge asset for this depressed area…
