Winick Realty Group Leases Second Location for Popular West Village Filipino Taqueria
2nd 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.
