Gonzalez of TF Cornerstone and Baker, Fishbein and Cohen of Winick lease 52,000 s/f to Chelsea Piers

33 bondTF Cornerstone Inc. (TFC) has  signed a 52,000 s/f lease with Chelsea Piers at 300 Livingston St., the retail portion of 33 Bond St., located between Schermerhorn and Livingston Sts. situated at the crossroads of Boerum Hill and Downtown Brooklyn. This development is TFC’s first borough location and is the center of one of the fastest-growing residential, office and hotel markets today.

“Downtown Brooklyn has transformed into a multi-faceted, diverse marketplace where top retailers such as Apple, Whole Foods and now Chelsea Piers are seeing a unique opportunity to reach their target demographics where they live, work and shop,” said Jake Elghanayan, senior vice president of TFC.

Chelsea Piers, known as a leader in sports and fitness, is slated to open a fitness club at 33 Bond in early 2018. When complete, residents will enjoy access from the residential lobby and discounted memberships.

Chelsea Piers was represented in-house for the long-term lease transaction, while TFC was represented by director of retail leasing Steve Gonzalez in collaboration with Winick Realty Group’s president Steven Baker; Aaron Fishbein and Daniyel Cohen.

Baker, Fishbein and Cohen are continuing to market the remaining 8,745 s/f of retail at 300 Livingston St. They are actively speaking with a variety of similarly-upmarket retailers—including artisanal food services, pantry operations, home goods and high-quality restaurants—who will create a strong co-tenancy for the building.

The space consists of 21,000 s/f on the ground floor and 31,000 s/f on the lower level, with high ceilings on both levels. In addition, Chelsea Piers will benefit from a main entrance on Schermerhorn Street, directly across from the expected Ace Hotel.

Winick Realty Group Leases Second Location for Popular West Village Filipino Taqueria

thomas-galo-print-ver-profile-0012nd City, the popular Filipino Taqueria from celebrity chef Jordan Andino, has signed a lease for its second Manhattan location at 1752 Second Avenue, between East 91st and 92nd Streets on the Upper East Side.

Winick Realty Group’s Charles Rapuano and Thomas Galo represented both 2nd City and landlord AMAC Holdings in the lease transaction, which capitalizes on the increased excitement and foot traffic brought about by the newly-completed Second Avenue Subway, which stops steps from the property.

“Ownership was looking for a cool, hip tenant to capitalize on the new vibrancy in the neighborhood brought about by the Second Avenue Subway and that is exactly what 2nd City represents,” said Galo. “Their model is built on quick service and lots of repeat business, which will really serve the office workers, students and residents nearby. 2nd City will be a great asset to an already-booming area.”

2nd City will occupy 650 square feet of ground-floor retail space when they open in Fall 2017 and they are expected to build out the restaurant with the same artsy decorations customers have come to know at their West Village location.

Galo and Rapuano are hoping to bring even more hip, casual restaurant tenants to the block as AMAC Holdings tapped them to lease the space next door at 1750 Second Avenue. This fully-vented retail space is comprised of 650 square feet on the ground floor and 400 square feet in the basement. Featuring 10 feet of avenue frontage, the space has a kitchen in place and includes a walk-in fridge.

Chelsea Piers Plans 52K-SF Gym in Downtown Brooklyn

33 bondThe company behind the sprawling Chelsea Piers complex on Manhattan’s West Side has inked a deal to operate a gym in a new Downtown Brooklyn rental building.

The 22-year-old firm signed a long-term lease for 52,000 square feet at the base of TF Cornerstone’s 33 Bond Street, a new luxury rental project under construction at the corner of Atlantic Avenue. Chelsea Piers will occupy 21,000 square feet on the ground floor and 31,000 square feet on the lower level, and its high-ceilinged space will have an entrance on Schermerhorn Street, across from the Ace Hotel, according to a release from the developer. The asking rent and the length of the lease weren’t immediately available.

However, the average asking rent for ground-floor retail space in the neighborhood hovers around $100 a square foot, according to The Wall Street Journal, which was the first to report news of the deal.

Chelsea Piers was represented in-house for the long-term lease transaction. TFC was represented in-house by Steve N. Gonzalez, along with Winick Realty Group’s Steven E. Baker, Aaron S. Fishbein and Daniyel Cohen. The building still has 8,745 square feet of retail available, and the developer is “actively speaking with a variety of similarly-upmarket retailers, including artisanal food services, pantry operations, home goods and high-quality restaurants” for the space, according to the release from TFC.

A spokeswoman for Winick didn’t immediately return a request for comment.

The 25-story, 714-unit rental building is scheduled to open to residents later this summer, according to spokespeople for the developer. Current listings up for grabs at the development range from studios asking $2,530 a month to two-bedroom, two-baths for $5,420, according to StreetEasy. Residents will be able to access the gym from the lobby of the building and will be able to get discounted memberships.

“Downtown Brooklyn has transformed into a multi-faceted, diverse marketplace where top retailers such as Apple, Whole Foods and now Chelsea Piers are seeing a unique opportunity to reach their target demographics where they live, work and shop,” Jake Elghanayan, a senior vice president at TFC, said in prepared remarks.

Chef of popular Filipino taqueria to open second location

Jordan AndinoUp and coming celebrity chef Jordan Andino is opening a second 2nd City — the popular West Village Filipino Taqueria — this fall at 1752 Second Avenue, between East 91st and 92nd streets.

The 650 square foot space comes with 16 seats, and an additional 400 square feet in the basement.

Andino, who started cooking when he was nine years old, is a TV personality and a former flame of Kris Jenner. He also did stint on the Kardashian’s TV show as the family’s Hamptons chef.

Andino hopes to transform 2nd City — named not after Chicago but Cebu City, the first capital of the Philippines — into a chain as Filipino food is coming out into its own.

A third location is coming in Brooklyn. Andino’s mother, a model, artist and actress who was in, “Dude, Where’s My Car,” grew up in Cebu City while his father was a Toronto chef.

Born in Toronto, raised in California and “classically trained” in Napa and New York, Andino said his goal is to put Filipino food on the Michelin map — and he is creating his own “AmAsian” style to get it there.

Winick Realty Group’s Charles Rapuano and Thomas Galo repped both 2nd City and landlord AMAC Holdings on the Second Avenue site, which is capitalizing on the increased foot traffic brought by the newly-completed Second Avenue Subway, which stops steps from the property.

“Ownership was looking for a cool, hip tenant to capitalize on the new vibrancy in the neighborhood, and that is exactly what 2nd City represents,” said Galo. “Their model is built on quick service and repeat business, which will serve the office workers, students and residents nearby.”
