Macy's has pumped the brakes on a renovation project for its flagship Brooklyn store and is mulling whether to sell the property and redevelop the location, according to a report in Women's Wear Daily.

According to the trade publication, sources said the department store could pull in about $300 million by selling the location. Property values in the New York City borough have been boosted by a major transformation that's underway, which has seen more white-collar workers move into the area.

A Macy's spokeswoman told the publication the retailer is "studying ways to improve the Brooklyn store," but has no comment at this time.
