Mega Glass and Sashes, the family-run glass store on Fifth between St. Marks and Bergen, is on the market.
The storefront is up for lease at $13,500 per month, Park Slope Stoop found. The listing touts the proximity to the Barclays Center as well as stores like Lululemon, Bump, Sun in Bloom, and 67 Burger, and notes that "all uses will be considered."
Mega Glass, which specializes in windows as well as custom-cut glass, has been owned by the Garrastegui family since 1972, and before that it was owned by the Swir family for 60 years, since 1912. This place has been a glass workshop for a shockingly long time, and it's evident: I had the chance to check it out a few years ago, and it really seems as if the only changes that have been made in the ensuing years have been the addition of a TV and a laptop; even the glasscutting tools are essentially the same ones that were used in the beginning. It's one of the few craftsman's workshops left in the neighborhood, let alone in a prime spot on a major avenue. Shame it most likely won't be around for much longer.
