DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Popular Sichuan restaurant Han Dynasty is expanding its empire with a new outpost at the City Point complex in Downtown Brooklyn

The chain will be opening its third New York City location — its first in Brooklyn — inside the massive new development at 1 DeKalb Ave. by 2017, City Point announced Thursday.

Han Dynasty will set up shop in a 3,200-square-foot space on the complex's concourse level, next to DeKalb Market Hall, which is also set to open in 2017 after some delays.

Customers can sit down at the 100-seat restaurant, or take their food to go by ordering at an “express kiosk” outside the eatery, according to Gothamist, which first reported the story.

The Brooklyn outpost will be the seventh for the restaurant chain, which also has locations in New Jersey and Philadelphia.

Copenhagen-based design retailer Flying Tiger will also be opening a 2,900-square-foot shop at the development next year, according to City Point.

“We... have no doubt the two will be very successful, as both brands bring unique offerings to the community,” developer Christopher Conlon said in a statement.

“Just like Brooklyn, City Point is for everyone with its mixed tenancy of entertainment, shopping and dining options.”

Han Dynasty and Flying Tiger will be joining major retailers like Trader Joe’s, Target and Century 21. 

While some of City Point’s new businesses have delayed their openings, including Trader Joe’s and Austin-based theater chain Alamo Drafthouse, others are on track to open this fall.

Century 21 is slated to open later this month.
