Iris Café, a beloved Brooklyn Heights establishment, will reopen under its original owner—who will also introduce, within the same waterfront storefront, a new, nearly 8,000-square-foot specialty grocery store called Town Market. Iris Café and Town Market will be joined by the boutique OV Pilates Studio, owned by a local resident. The new tenants will be housed in One Brooklyn Bridge Park and The Landing at Brooklyn Bridge Park, both adjacent to Quay Tower.

Neighborhood favorite Iris Café, formerly located on Columbia Place, will reopen on the southern side of One Brooklyn Bridge Park and will be connected to the new Town Market, which will offer locally sourced options. The opening is slated for the second half of 2020.

The Landing at Brooklyn Bridge Park, located directly across the street from Quay Tower at 15 Bridge Park Drive, houses 140 rental units. OV Pilates Studio has leased 885 square feet at The Landing offering both private and small group lessons. The developers are building out another 2,400-square-foot retail space there for a Montessori-based “forest preschool”.
