Muay Thai gym HitHouse opening at 2 Spring Street in Nolita

boxing-e1434730575671-938x535HitHouse, a new boutique kickboxing concept created by Muay Thai instructor and fighter Tyler Scott, has signed a lease for its first studio at 2 Spring Street, also known as 180 Bowery, in the Nolita/Bowery shopping district.

The 4,300 s/f space is located at the lower level of the building, where it has its own retail entrance with frontage, as well as a small vestibule.

The tenant was immediately drawn to the rugged feel and unique features of the space — including exposed brick, wooden beams and raw cast iron columns – as well as co-tenants Nudie Jeans and Kings Avenue Tattoo, who they felt were a good match for the HitHouse brand.

“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.

Landlord Bowery Spring Corp. was represented by Lisamarie Dixon of Paley Dixon.

Winick Realty Group Bring Innovative Fitness Concept to the Bowery for First Location

danielle-winick-print-ver-profile-002HitHouse, a new boutique kickboxing concept created by Muay Thai instructor and fighter Tyler Scott, has signed a lease for its first studio at 2 Spring Street, also known as 180 Bowery, in the heart of the Nolita/Bowery shopping district.

The 4,300-square-foot space is located at the lower level of the building, where it has its own retail entrance with frontage, as well as a small vestibule. The tenant was immediately drawn to the rugged feel and unique features of the space—including exposed brick, wooden beams and raw cast iron columns –as well as co-tenants Nudie Jeans and Kings Avenue Tattoo, who they felt were a good match for the HitHouse brand.

“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 offers the high-end feel of a boutique studio but also stays true to the grittier roots of Thai boxing—a combination that is well represented in the building, the co-tenancy and the space itself.”

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.

“The HitHouse aesthetic fits in perfectly with the needs of the local customers, whether they live in the many residential buildings under construction in Nolita or they work in nearby SoHo,” said Cohen.

They will offer group Muay Thai Kickboxing classes for all ages, genders and skill levels. Classes are taught by top level amateur and professional fighters, all of whom possess friendly, engaging and unique personalities.

The studio will feature HitHouse’s customized and patented striking bag, Bishop, which Scott designed to mitigate the swaying and momentum a traditional heavy bag creates when hanging from a chain. It features a carbon fiber pole on the inside that attaches floor to ceiling, as well as a mesh fiber cover that eliminates cuts and scrapes. Its uniquely-shaped outer shell allows strikes to be thrown from all angles and is filled with a high density urethane foam that prevents bruising and injury commonly caused by traditional equipment. According to Scott, this design is very forgiving to a beginner’s technique and makes it much easier to keep the rhythm and timing of throwing strikes that typically takes years to develop.

New Muay Thai Kickboxing Concept Coming to Nolita

2-spring-street-photo-costar-groupMuay Thai instructor and fighter Tyler Scott has created a new boutique kickboxing concept, and has signed a lease for his first HitHouse studio at 2 Spring Street, also known as 180 Bowery, Commercial Observer has learned.

HitHouse has signed a lease for a 4,300-square-foot below-grade space, where it has its own retail entrance with frontage, and a small vestibule. The gym will offer group Muay Thai kickboxing classes for all ages, genders and skill levels, taught by amateur and professional fighters. The studio will feature HitHouse’s customized and patented striking bag, Bishop, which Scott designed to mitigate the swaying and momentum a traditional heavy bag creates when hanging from a chain.

Winick Realty Group’s Danielle Winick and Daniyel Cohen, who represented the tenant, said Scott was drawn to the rugged feel and unique features of the space, including exposed brick, wooden beams and raw cast iron columns, as well as co-tenants Nudie Jeans and Kings Avenue Tattoo.

The asking rent in the April deal was $24,367 per month, HitHouse is the first tenant to lease the space since the landlord, Two Spring Associates, repositioned the building. The Winick brokers declined to provide the length of the lease. House is expected to move in in the third quarter.

“This is a perfect marriage of space and use,” said Winick in prepared remarks. “HitHouse offers the high-end feel of a boutique studio but also stays true to the grittier roots of Thai boxing—a combination that is well represented in the building, the co-tenancy and the space itself.”

Lisamarie Dixon of Paley Dixon represented the landlord in the transaction. She declined to comment.

“We here at management are pleased to welcome HitHouse as an exciting addition to our building, and a perfect complement to Nudie Jeans,” said Chris C. Chin, who represents the building management. “We expect HitHouse to do for boxing what Soul Cycle did for cycling.”

Sweetgreen opens new Soho store

Sweetgreen-OpeningxSCG Retail  announced the signing of a 2,400 s/f lease for Sweetgreen, at 100 Kenmare Street in Nolita/Soho.

Today’s opening marks the organic, fast-food chain’s fourth NYC location, each handled by SCG Retail, which represents Sweetgreen exclusively in the New York Metro region.

According to David Firestein, one of three SCG Retail brokers that work with Sweetgreen, “Soho/Nolita is perfect for Sweetgreen’s farm-to-table approach to convenient food. Kenmare is a great location because it’s strategically positioned to tap into the tourist flow, the daytime office crowd, and the residents who are hungry night or day.”

Sweetgreen reinvented the fast-food category with a ‘locally sourced and organic ingredient’ approach in 2007, when its founders, three recent graduates opened its first location in Georgetown. The three incorporate a commitment to community and sustainability into everything they do, from the food, to packaging, even store design. With  22 north east locations, Sweetgreen is poised to revolutionize the category coast-to-coast.

Sweetgreen also takes a unique approach to its NYC location strategy, formulated with the help of SCG Retail. They avoid the highest rents in appropriate areas to maintain the highest quality, locally-sourced ingredients and still offer healthy meals at a reasonable price.

“It’s that combination that makes Sweetgreen an instant success wherever they open,” said Taryn Brandes, another of SCG Retail brokers on the Sweetgreen team. “The food is authentic and so is their commitment to building real relationships in the communities where they operate.”

Sweetgreen provides educational programs to local schools about eating right, health and wellness. Several programs have already run in New York City. The Sweetlife Music and Food Festival held last month in DC is considered a must-attend annual show and is garnering national attention, not to mention featuring great musical artists like Foster the People and Lana Del Ray.

SCG Retail began assisting Sweetgreen in 2012. The first two Manhattan locations opened last year in Nomad and Tribeca. Williamsburg is slated to open late this year. The Kenmare Street location opened this morning.

“We’re all about working with companies that get our values,” said Nicolas Jamet, one of Sweetgreen’s founders. “The people at SCG Retail understand us, food and the city. They were very helpful in demystifying the New York City landscape. We’re very excited about doing much more here.”

One of the reasons SCG Retail was so bullish on Kenmare Street is the food renaissance taking place in the neighborhood. “You’ve got Parm, Rubirosa and Taim doing well on Mulberry Street,” said Brandes, “and there’s la Esquina, Ed’s lobster Bar and Osteria Morini on Lafayette. Sweetgreen adds to the area’s ‘cool food factor,’ and taps into the neighborhood’s demand for healthy, quick options.”

Jacquleine Klinger of SCG Retail also represented Sweetgreen on Kenmare. She was one of last year’s REBNY Deal of the Year winners. Klinger loves working with innovative concepts. “I was so excited the first time I walked into the original Sweetgreen location in Georgetown,” said Klinger. “I just knew they had tremendous potential nationally.”

100 Kenmare Street is owned by Coral Realty and they were represented by Darrell Rubens and Aaron Fishbein of Winick Realty.

SCG Retail is actively seeking more metro area locations for Sweetgreen. “We have a unique combination of attributes that a site must meet for it to be in their portfolio,” added Firestein.

“That’s why we’ve got a team of brokers working on this. The Sweetgreen approach has really resonated here at SCG. People want to feel as if they are part of community and everyone in the office is helping us find them the right places in the city because this is a win/win for all.”

Winick Realty Group leases two retail storefronts at 22 Spring Street; Rubens and Block rep ownership Mahfar

matthew-ball-print-ver-profile-001Winick Realty Group leased two retail storefronts at 22 Spring St., between Mott and Elizabeth Sts. in Nolita. The 700 s/f spaces were previously ground-floor apartments and had never housed retail before.

“Landlord Samy Mahfar made a substantial investment to refurbish what had previously been an eyesore on the block,” said Winick executive vice president Darrell Rubens, who represented Mahfar along with Lee Block. “He refaced the building and created retail space at the base in order to make the block and the building a better fit for the neighborhood.”

Rubens and Block worked with Mahfar at every step of the leasing process. While they had numerous offers on the table, ownership ultimately decided to lease the two retail spaces to Paint Box, an art gallery and custom framing store with five other Manhattan locations, and The Clay Pot, a boutique jewelry store with one location in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

“Samy felt that these uses were the best fits for the neighborhood,” said Rubens. “They are upscale, clean and lively new additions to the block.”

Winick Realty Group’s Matthew Ball represented Paint Box, which is opening in October, and also assisted Rubens and Block in representing Mahfar in The Clay Pot lease. The Clay Pot, which will be open in time for the holiday season, was represented by Andrew Mendel and Lindsay Charles of Ripco.
