The lease fills out the remaining retail space in the 50,000-square-foot retail condominium at the building, also known as the Brooklyn Municipal Building.

Maison Kayser, which serves up baguettes and fruit-topped pastries, will be joining Last Call Neiman Marcus, the discount offshoot of the high-end brand, as well as Yoga Works and Sephora.

The bakery will be on the Court Street side of the space, according to TRD, with an official address at 57 Court Street.

Paul Berkman of JLL represented the baker, while Jason Pennington of Ripco Realty represented the landlord, United American Land. Neither Mr. Berkman nor Mr. Pennington were available for comment.

Maison Kayser will take 3,000 square feet on the ground floor, and 1,500 square feet on a lower level, TRD said.

The bakery has eight locations in Manhattan either operating or slated to open soon, according to its website. Those are concentrated to Midtown, Lower Manhattan, and on the Upper East and Upper West Sides.
