Winick signs five New Jersey spots for popular sub shop

GK MC handshakeWinick Realty Group announced that Gary Krauss, the exclusive broker for Jersey Mike’s in New Jersey, has negotiated five new leases on behalf of the popular sandwich chain, bringing the brand to four new markets in its home state of New Jersey.

Jersey Mike’s leased 1,600 square feet at 346 Route 10, East Hanover, NJ, where they join such national co-tenants as Verizon and Party City. Landlord JEMB Realty was represented by Bill Lenaz of RJ Brunelli.

The company’s first West Orange location is set to open at 235 Prospect Avenue in the Whole Foods Center. The 1,750-square-foot store shares its space with Chipotle Mexican Grill, for which Winick Realty Group had also negotiated the lease.

“Chipotle took over a former fast food operator’s space; however, the space was larger than Chipotle needed, so since we represented both Chipotle and Jersey Mike’s, we were able to leverage our relationship with the landlord and integrate both concepts into the vacant space,” said Krauss. Vanguard and Levin Management, who co-own the property, were represented in-house.

Jersey Mike’s leased 1,200 square feet at the Pheasant Valley Shopping Center in Warren, NJ. Landlord Hampshire Properties was represented by Ray Ayers in a direct deal. Finally, the brand is opening two new locations in Wayne, NJ.

In the West Belt Plaza Shopping Center, Jersey Mike’s leased 1,350 square feet at 57 Route 23. Landlord Segal and Segal was represented by Neal Richards of Vanguard. The same operators are also opening a store within the Wedgewood Plaza Shopping Center, located on the busy Hamburg Turnpike. Krauss negotiated a lease for 1,700 square feet at 155 Hamburg Turnpike. Landlord Wedgewood Properties LLC was represented by Mills Retail Real Estate.

New York Real Estate Journal

2014 Year in Review: Robert Heicklen, Winick Realty Group

robert-heicklen-258x3002What was the best thing that happened to you or your firm in 2014?

Credit goes out to my colleagues Kelly Gedinsky, Lee Block, Josh Siegelman, and Ross Burack who were all recognized this year for their continued success within the Real Estate Community.

What was your most notable project, deal, transaction or personal achievement in 2014?

While much of my tenant representation is focused on Long Island, I am based out of an office in Midtown Manhattan where the reality of what happened to the shores of Long Island in the wake of Superstorm Sandy is not something my colleagues truly understand. That storm left a devastating effect on so many in that region. I began working on a steady stream of deals at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 in that area and this year, many of the tenants I brought the area have begun opening their doors. The reaction is been overwhelmingly positive and helps to show that the area’s recovery is real and ongoing. Watching this change has been my biggest professional accomplishment to date.

What are you looking forward to accomplishing in 2015?

Creating more brand recognition for me and my company in Long Island and other parts of the country.

What are some of your real estate predictions for 2015?

I think we will see an uptick in retail expansion throughout Manhattan and the five boroughs thanks to a ton of new development coming online this year in historically low volume and less easily accessible districts. The attractiveness of sites off of the avenues and major retail corridors alike will make it affordable for brands to not only open their doors, but also be successful and have less turnover.
