Winick Realty Group Brings Exclusive Colombian Coffee Roaster to TF Cornerstone’s 300 Livingston Street
The retail at 300 Livingston Street is poised to draw from such diverse populations as office workers; shoppers from the Fulton Mall; upscale residents from the thousands of new constructions in the neighborhood; students from nearby universities and MetroTech; and tourists populating the area’s many hotels, including the new Ace Hotel that is set to open across the street.
“The building at 300 Livingston Street is uniquely situated between two of Brooklyn’s fastest-growing neighborhoods and, specifically, it is positioned on the traffic path that leads Boerum Hill residents to the many area train stations,” said Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker. “This accessibility helped draw Devocion to 300 Livingston Street and will help to make them a staple to the neighborhood.”
Baker, along with Winick Realty Group’s Aaron S. Fishbein and Daniyel Cohen, represented landlord TF Cornerstone. Devocion was represented by Covell Consulting.
“We are proud to welcome Devocion to 300 Livingston Street,” said Steve N. Gonzalez, director of retail leasing at TF Cornerstone. “They offer a unique concept that will greatly serve the 714 residential units in the building, as well as the ever evolving retail landscape of Downtown Brooklyn and Boerum Hill.”
Founded in 2006 in Colombia and then brought to New York in 2013, Devocion’s second Brooklyn location, which will open in late 2017, will occupy the prime corner location of the building at Livingston and Bond Streets. The street level space boasts 17-foot ceilings, as well as eye-catching, all-glass corner frontage.
The new 40-seat café will offer the brand’s trademark farm-fresh direct trade coffee, in addition to a variety of in-house freshly baked pastries and sandwiches. With a network of over 400 microlot farms throughout Colombia, Devocion is the only true farm-to-table coffee roaster serving the freshest coffee in the U.S. as they overnight their beans from Bogota to their Williamsburg showroom via FedEx for roasting in as little as 10 days from “green state.”
“Our second New York location is, to some degree, more important than our first, so I am excited to have found such a great location in Brooklyn that is evolving quickly,” said Steven Sutton, founder of Devocion. “We are thrilled to have found a landlord that understands the needs of their tenants and look forward to servicing all of the residents at 33 Bond, as well as those customers from all around the area.”
Baker, Fishbein and Cohen are continuing to market the remaining retail at 300 Livingston Street, which ranges from 1,500- to 5,500-square-foot spaces. 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.
