Winick Realty Group Leases First Manhattan Retail Showroom for Reines Gallery 

aaron-fishbein-002Winick Realty Group’s Aaron S. Fishbein announced that Reines Gallery has signed a lease for its first retail showroom in New York City. Zvi Reines, who has worked overseas and maintained a studio showroom in the past, will occupy 1,400 square feet at the base of River Lofts, a luxury residential condominium located at 92 Laight Street in TriBeCa.

“The space is very unique as it sits at the corner of Laight Street and the West Side Highway,” said Fishbein, who represented the tenant in the lease transaction. “With the all-glass storefront, it’s a strategic branding opportunity that takes advantage of the tremendous vehicular traffic and pedestrian waterfront traffic. Given the location and art which will be showcased, it will be a very intriguing destination.”

The gallery is set to open in approximately four weeks and will present a dynamic program of exhibitions from a diverse group of artists that includes paintings, prints, photography, sculpture, decorative and ceremonial objects, including selections of Judaica, books and manuscripts. Custom framing, printing and art-related services will also be offered.

“I look forward to opening Manhattan’s first Reines Gallery at 92 Laight Street,” said Reines “We are confident that this will immediately be an exciting destination for the neighborhood, the art community, local and international clients.”

Landlord AA Olympic LLC was represented by Roxanne Betesh and James Costello of Sinvin.

Winick Realty Group NJ broker Alison Cohen, the broker for  18|8 Fine Men’s Salons in New Jersey, represented the salon in both transactions.

The salon is set to occupy 2,300 s/f of retail space at The Hills at Bedminster, a heavily-trafficked shopping center that features the upscale co-tenants and customers the brand had been seeking. The only availability in the center, this space had previously housed a UPS store and 18|8 is currently reconstructing the space to accommodate a salon with private stations and sinks. “They really like to offer a personal touch,” said Cohen.

18|8 also signed a lease for 1,500 s.f at Livingston Town Center, where the salon will join such co-tenants as Omaha Steaks and Nicole Miller. “Livingston Town Center is a really nice, upscale, community outdoor mall that is going through a resurgence,” said Cohen, “and we feel that 18|8 will add to the tenant mix.” The space was previously a popcorn stre that left behind beautiful hardwood floors. “They are going to make their dream salon,” Cohen said.

The Hills at Bedminster landlord BIT Holdings was represented by Levin Managemen, while Goldstein Group represented landlord LTC Retail Owner c/o Onyx Equities at Livingston Town Center.

Penthouses with Roof Decks Coming to Former Hospital

queens pointeThe owners of a former hospital that has been vacant since 2009 are set to begin leasing nearly 150 apartments and penthouses in the former healthcare space “soon,” according to a report.

The former St. John’s Hospital building and an adjacent parking garage was bought by a group of global investors in December 2013 for $55 million, and they are in the process of turning the seven-story building into apartments with commercial space on the lower floors.

Developers of the more than 266,000-square-foot building on Queens Boulevard between 57th Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard, which used to be St. John’s Hospital, obtained a $32 million loan to help finish the project, according to The Real Deal.

A co-founder of one of the groups involved in the project, Josh Zegen of Madison Realty Capital, told the site that they will begin leasing space in the building “soon,” the Real Deal said.

Zegen said the building  will eventually include 144 studio, one-and two-bedroom rental apartments — with eight top-floor penthouses that have 15-foot ceilings and private roof decks.

Prices would be around $40 per square foot the Real Deal said.

The project is dubbed “Queens Pointe,” according to a sign on the building. Commercial leasing is being handled by Winick Realty, which is advertising five ground-floor shops and two in the basement.

The second floor will be community space, although it’s not clear what kind, and retail shops will be on the ground floor and the basement.

Calls to Madison Realty Capital and Winick Realty were not immediately returned.
