First Shop Opens at Empire Stores.

The huge warehouse in DUMBO at 53-83 Water street has been slated to become Empire Stores, a giant shopping center, for a while now and we thought it would have been finished by now based on reports we’d heard earlier. They aren’t set to complete the space until 2017 but their very first shop is now open for business.  It’s the high end furniture store, West Elm.  Read more here. There are a few other known tenants (including a rooftop beer garden!) and the rest will unfold over the next year so stay tuned!
