We first heard about the H&M in the Fulton Street Mall over a year ago, but it sounds like another few years will pass before the Swedes officially invade downtown Brooklyn. Reports WWD: "The 30,000-square-foot, bilevel store is being built from the ground up by developer Albert Laboz of United American Land and was originally slated to open in 2010, but construction delays due to its proximity to a busy subway station is pushing the opening back to fall 2011." Fulton Mall is not exactly lacking in fast fashion outlets, but a shiny new anchor store might be a nice complement to its rather neglected Macys.
