Bakery Ovenly, "shaved cream" spot Snowdays coming to Flatbush Avenue near arena, new residential buildings (& Parm)

Real Estate Weekly reports on two new leases on Flatbush Avenue near the Barclays Center, where some fallow spaces, once occupied by medical services, will now be--natch--food:
TerraCRG has completed a retail lease with Ovenly, an award-winning Brooklyn bakery now embarking on a strategic expansion.
TerraCRG’s leasing team, led by Peter Schubert, arranged the 750 s/f ground floor retail lease at 210 Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope, across from Forest City Ratner’s first residential building in Pacific Park opening next month.
Ovenly is based in Greenpoint. “Ovenly’s quality product, store design and approach to doing business meshes perfectly with our vision for the Barclays Center corridor,” landlord Michael Pintchik told the publication.

Also, as the publication reported:
Eastern Consolidated has arranged a 10-year, 980 s/f lease at 214 Flatbush Avenue... for Snowdays, a unique shaved cream dessert shop that is expanding into the outer boroughs.
“We knew we wanted a space near the Barclays Center because the arena and neighborhood are attracting both the young professionals and families that are patronizing Snowdays’ other shops,” [Eastern Consolidated's Joe] Robinson said.

What is shaved cream? Well, according to Snowdays:
Shaved cream is the new category in frozen desserts. It is an evolution of the Taiwanese and Korean shaved ices, which has taken over the west coast and is now moving quickly across the nation. Shaved cream pairs the fluffy texture of snow with the taste and creaminess of ice cream.
Note that Italian-American restaurant Parm was in 2014 said to have a lease at 208-210 Flatbush, but as of last year was reportedly coming to 202 Flatbush, "a couple of months after" opening in Williamsburg, which happened this past September. All three would be near neighbors.

Screenshot via Google Maps: 216 Flatbush Avenue, once home to Fish & Sip, is now Don Chingon. To the immediate right
is 214 Flatbush, destined for Snowdays. Ovenly is presumably coming two doors down, while Parm would be at red awning.
