PARK SLOPE – William Macklowe Company and GreenBarn Investment Group—joint developers of a major residential and retail complex at 120 Fifth Avenue in Park Slope—announced today that they have signed a 3,500-square-foot lease with Wells Fargo to operate a new community banking facility.

Billy Macklowe, CEO of William Macklowe Company, said, “Creating access to essential retail goods and services, like banking, is a crucial component of our approach to development. We are excited to be partnering with Wells Fargo to deliver a new community-oriented bank for the convenience of our neighbors and future residents. Construction of our residential and retail development is advancing on schedule, and we expect that the new bank will open in late 2024.”

Once completed, the 180-unit residential rental development will include 45 units of affordable housing, a total of approximately 67,000 square feet of retail/commercial space, and a below-grade parking garage.

The Wells Fargo branch joins two anchor tenants at 120 Fifth Avenue: Lidl, an international grocer that will operate a community supermarket in the new complex, and a CVS pharmacy. Together, these three tenants account for over 41,000 square feet of the planned retail/commercial space.
