The second floor of 320 Court Street will soon be providing floatation therapy.
One of the enormous tubs that were delivered to 320 Court Street in February
Some readers though they were birthing tubs, some others thought they were for swinger parties.
Those who guessed that they were floating tanks seem to have been correct.
Someone just forwarded me a copy of a the-year commercial lease agreement that was signed back in October 2013 between James McGown's Brooklyn Renaissance, LLC and Float Ventures, LLC., a business which will be offering floatation therapy.
Strangely, the agreement states that the landlord acknowledges that Float Ventures, LLC. "is reliant upon a lack of noise" and that he will "shall undertake reasonable efforts to ensure that the other tenants of 320 Court Street utilize their respective premises to minimize disruption to the Business due to sound."
That may be a bit difficult considering that there is a loud pub directly underneath the floating tanks.
James McGown is auctioning off 320 Court Street together with some of his other Brooklyn properties at a pre-foreclosure" auction, which will be held at the Brooklyn Marriott Hotel today, March 27th, 2015 at 10 AM.
A description of the 320 Court Street building estimates its value at $9.4 million. It states that the storefront is owner-occupied and will be delivered vacant, so perhaps the noise emanating from Buschenschank.
According to a source, Float Ventures is putting the finishing touches on the second floor space and plans to open soon.Meanwhile, a PMFA reader sent along the photos above of the second floor of the building bathed in black light. He writes:
"They’ve built out three interior private rooms, and the door was open to one of them- someone was working in there. There’s some weird shape in the room but for the life of me, I couldn’t even really figure what shape it was. I imagine it’s something that goes over one of those big tubs. Combine that with the black light, and it seems a little weird."
For fun, the reader also sent along a clip of the classic Altered States, Ken Russell's film featuring LSD and sensory deprivation tanks.
