The low-rise brick structures housing the Brooklyn Bowl and Brooklyn Brewery — spanning 61-71 Wythe Avenue, in northern Williamsburg — are on the market, reports Crain’s Business. Although leases don’t expire for a couple more years, if community space is included, up to 170,000 square-feet of mixed-use commercial and community-use development rights could be utilized. The assemblage is being valued at over $50 million.

But fortunately it is finally being replaced, and YIMBY now has the reveal for the new building, designed by C3D Architecture.
