The redevelopment at 1000 Dean Street, Crown Heights, was planned with what’s been described by DNAInfo as an “enormous, Wonka-esque test kitchen” with 3rd Ward as an anchor tenant. That now seems unlikely, with the maker space’s closure.

From the latest update:

“We don’t really know yet what’s happening,” a source close to the 1000 Dean St. project told DNAinfo New York. “It really sucks for us.”

Their enormous, Wonka-esque test kitchen and culinary incubator won a $1.5 million grant from the New York City Economic Development Corporation. As of Friday, nothing about the award or the partnership had changed, an EDC spokeswoman confirmed.
