Winick Realty Brings Marquee Queens Corner to Market

9119-queens-boulevard-coverWinick Realty Group announced that it is bringing one of Queens’ most heavily-trafficked and highly-visible retail corners to market for the first time in 40 years.

The retail at 91-19 Queens Boulevard consists of two prime retail spaces adjacent to the Duane Reade located in the building.

Space A, the corner space currently occupied by McDonald’s, consists of 2,600 square feet on the ground floor and 2,700 square feet in the lower level.

Space B, the currently-vacant inline space, offers 900 square feet on the ground floor and 700 square feet in the lower level.

The two may be combined for a total of 3,500 square feet on the ground floor and 3,400 square feet on the lower level.

The Winick Realty Group team of CEO Jeff Winick, Daniel D. DePasquale, Thomas Caliendo and Danielle Winick is working on behalf of landlord Mavro Windsor LLC to market this once-in-a-lifetime property.

“This truly is a flagship-worthy space in the heart of Queens,” said Caliendo. “Its prime location on the corner of Woodhaven Boulevard and Queens Boulevard puts an incoming brand in the enviable position of facing the Queens Center Mall, where 27 million people shop each year, and in particular, the entrances to two of the mall’s most popular tenants—Shake Shack and Cheesecake Factory.”

91-19 Queens Boulevard sits at a busy intersection just off the Long Island Expressway, where more than 270,000 cars pass by each day.

An entrance to the Woodhaven Boulevard subway station, which services more than seven million riders each year, is located directly outside the store, and six bus lines also stop near the property.

Incoming tenants will be able to capture this visibility thanks to more than 142 feet of prime frontage and a 672-square-foot billboard, which can be leased along with either Space A or Space B.

Winick Realty Group is seeking tenants who will complement the incredible list of retailers inside the Queens Center Mall, which includes JCPenney, Macy’s, Coach, Victoria’s Secret, Banana Republic and H&M.

Winick Realty Group Markets Boutique Hotel Retail Opportunity in Hudson Square

229-outsideWinick Realty Group proudly announced that the company has been selected to market a unique boutique retail opportunity at the base of the new 325-room Arlo Hudson Square, located between Canal and Spring streets.

Winick Realty Group Executive Vice Presidents Darrell Rubens and Lee Block are marketing the approximately 1,000-square-foot retail space to tenants who not only wish to join the exciting tenants and partnerships already open at the property–including Harold’s Meat + Three, the popular new restaurant from chef Harold Moore, as well as Joe’s Coffee and Blind Barber–but also take advantage of unique branding opportunities throughout the hotel with over 500 captive guests in the hotel every day.

“This boutique retail space has its own storefront entrance but is also connected to the hotel through their beautiful communal space and outdoor courtyard totaling 10,000 square feet,” said Rubens. “An incoming tenant can expand their branding throughout the hotel, utilizing the courtyard, restaurant and rooftop bar for events and merchandising opportunities.”

The Arlo Hudson Square opened in September 2016, while the retail space is currently under construction with an expected possession date in Q1 2017. Hudson Square is one of Manhattan’s most dynamic up-and-coming neighborhoods, with more than $400 million in residential and commercial developments currently underway within one block of the hotel, including Related Companies’ new luxury rental building at 261 Hudson Street.

Snapchat Opens Store to Market Spectacles Through Holiday Season

59th-night-snapchat-cropSnapchat, the short-term photo messaging app, has opened a pop-up location at the former Playboy Club. The is the first physical store for the company, which it will use to market its new picture-taking sunglasses.

The social media app will occupy the entirety of 5 East 59th Street between Madison and Fifth Avenues through New Year’s Eve, according to Snapchat’s website. The store, which officially opened yesterday, will be closed only on Thanksgiving as well as Christmas Eve and Day.

Asking rent in the deal was not immediately available, but brokers with Winick Realty Group were previously asking $14 million a year for the space.

The building includes a 5,000-square-foot ground floor that has 22-foot ceilings. Much of the nine-story structure façade has been covered with a yellow banner brandishing Snapchat’s logo. The property sits across the street from the Apple store at 767 Fifth Avenue, otherwise known as the General Motors Building.

GreenOak Real Estate and Capstone Equities put the building up for lease last year, tapping Winick’s Darrell Rubens, Lee Block and Kelly Gedinsky to market the 40,000-square-foot building. The Winick team represented both the tenant and the landlord in this deal.

Rubens said this is Snapchat’s first brick-and-mortar store in which it is marketing the company’s new “Spectacles.” The sunglasses are outfitted with cameras that allow the wearers to record photos and videos of what they are seeing, which is then wirelessly uploaded to the Snapchat app.

“We have been marketing it as a stand alone creative space to showcase a brand with a retail component,” Rubens said of 5 East 59th Street. The team has been looking for “a new brand who would have a synergy with Apple.”

Snapchat has been setting up “Snapbots”—vending machines that sell the glasses, which will also be featured in this location. The company has also dropped them in recent weeks at the Grand Canyon and the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
