Earlier this year, Urbane, along with partners BRP Companies, NYCEDC, HPD, and HDC, together announced the opening and rebranding of Flatbush Central – formerly known as Flatbush Caton Market. As an essential pillar of the community for more than 20 years, this long-awaited upgrade revitalizes the locally adored market far beyond just a name.
Excitement surrounding the announcement has ignited the Flatbush community and beyond. The new Flatbush Central Caribbean Marketplace includes upgraded amenities and programming such as expanded space for vendors; a shared commercial kitchen, bar, and lounge; and 5,000 square feet of supplemental community space. Check out some of the coverage below to learn more about the recent opening and rebrand, along with what the future holds for the new and improved market.
