Coming To Brooklyn…The Urban Outfitters Mall

#urbanoutffiters #takingovertheworld #onehipsterneighborhoodatatime

The hipster capital of the world is being blessed (or some may think cursed) with a massive four-story Urban Outfitters Mall. Yes…I said Mall. Ok, I know a lot of local residents are probably pissed at this but when you hear about the design/layout of the store and the building's initiatives, it's actually pretty cool.

The first floor aka the Market Space, will showcase local independent designers work. The second and third floors will be dedicated to men's and women's clothing, as well as electronic and home goods. The third floor will also have The Gorbals restaurant and bar with a complimentary roof top space for eating and drinking. Gallery 98, the lower level of the building, will host pop-up shops with a rotating case of labels, starting with adidas Original Blue.

Now that I've added some color to the Urban Outfitters Mall, what are your thoughts on the retail chain? Do you think it'll affect the mom and pop shops? Raise rent prices? Or do you think this is a new, innovative and cool addition to Brooklyn?

Check out the video below and see what the Brooklyn Hipsters thought about their new retail neighbor.
