Boxing Gym Backed by Stallone, Bieber Opening Upper East Side Outpost

rumble fitness buildingYo Adrian!

A boxing gym that counts Sylvester Stallone and Justin Bieber as investors is planning to open a location on Third Avenue by the end of the year, according to the company and reports.

Rumble, which has a location in Chelsea and is planning another in NoHo this summer, just signed a lease for 1495 Third Ave., between East 84th and 85th streets, The Real Deal reported.

Rumble will take over the entire five-story building, which used to house S Cavallo Antiques. SMA Equities bought the building last year for $18.2 million, city records show.

The new gym, which opened its first location in Chelsea earlier this year, specializes in boxing-inspired group fitness classes set to hip-hop and mood lighting, Rumble’s website says. The gym’s punching bags are actually filled with water.

The gym’s 10-year lease clocks in at about $1 million per year, Rumble spokeswoman Samantha Wenig said. She explained that the company chose the Upper East Side for its next location because the area’s demographic fits well with Rumble’s core customer.

Noah Neiman, who is a former master trainer at Barry’s Bootcamp and a cast member of Bravo’s “Work Out New York,” owns the company with Eugene Remm, Andy Stenzler and Anthony DiMarco.

Stallone invested in the company, which the New York Post called “the most anticipated group-fitness concept since SoulCycle.”

Winick Realty brokered the deal.

Retail flourishes in outer boroughs amid trying times

aaron-fishbein-print-ver-profile-001Across the water, Long Island City in Queens is also experiencing a construction boom. It has a new Aloft hotel — funky, trendy and colorful, as that Starwood brand is known to be — plus a whopping 36 hotels on the way. Not to mention the neighborhood has an existing 12,000 apartments and another 22,000 units coming online in the next two years alone, making it a bright spot for future retail growth.

Starbucks has already rented in Long Island City, while Western Queens’ first Chipotle is open at 26-16 Jackson Ave. Other retailers, from wine shops to pharmacies and banks, are going on site visits in the area.

Many young professionals — some with kids — live in the Queens Plaza area but work in Manhattan. They pump life and bucks into the retailers before and after work.

“We are already consulting on new big-box store locations,” says Aaron Fishbein, director of Winick Realty Group. “Residents are currently waiting to buy a cup of coffee, and retailers want to lock in [lower] rents and not miss out like they did in Williamsburg [in Brooklyn].”

Netcost Market Signs 38,000-Square-Foot Lease at Cammeby’s Neptune/Sixth in Coney Island

626 sheepshead bay roadCammeby’s announced that NetCost Market has signed a 38,000-square-foot lease to relocate its Coney Island location to Neptune/Sixth, Cammeby’s new mixed-use neighborhood destination. The regional supermarket will serve as the anchor retail tenant of 532 Neptune Avenue.

The lease enables NetCost to expand from its current location in Coney Island within a neighboring property. The supermarket chain operates nine locations throughout New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia.

“NetCost Market is an important fixture and retail service in the Coney Island community, so we are extremely excited that this quality regional grocery chain has decided to relocate its neighborhood store to Neptune/Sixth,” stated Jacob Cohen, executive vice president of development at Cammeby’s. “As work begins on the project’s second phase, we expect that the presence of NetCost will play an important role in attracting tenants to the remaining available retail space.”

Neptune/Sixth is set to be home to a diverse mix of both retail shops and service-oriented business, while adding new amenities that the community can use and share, including ample parking. Neptune/Sixth also features brand new office space that several businesses will call home.

In recent months, Cammeby’s has announced lease agreements at 532 Neptune Avenue with Capital One, CVS Pharmacy and Apple Bank – all of which have been tenants of the former shopping center property that Neptune/Sixth will encompass. Additionally, Cammeby’s recently announced that department store DII will anchor Neptune/Sixth’s under-construction first phase, a seven-story commercial and retail building at 626 Sheepshead Bay Road.

“Cammeby’s has specifically targeted the types of retailers that Coney Island residents have communicated a desire to see at Neptune/Sixth,” stated Lee Block, executive vice president at Winick Realty Group, the exclusive retail leasing agent for Neptune/Sixth. “NetCost’s new space at 532 Neptune Avenue will allow the grocer to expand its offerings to meet the ever-growing demand in the neighborhood for top-quality foods that are rigorously sourced but reasonably priced.”

Designed by New York-based S9 Architecture, Neptune/Sixth is the comprehensive redevelopment of the former Trump Village Shopping Center and Royal Palace Baths.

“This is a perfect marriage of space and use,” said Winick Realty Group’s Danielle Winick, who represented the tenant along with Daniyel Cohen.

HitHouse will also have a sign band on Spring Street and blade signage on Bowery to draw the attention of the changing residential demographics of the area.
