Winick Realty Group LLC Brings Asian Fusion Restaurant To Williamsburg

Fushimi is at it again, opening their third New York City location in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Asian fusion restaurant, which has been around for eight years, leased 7,200 square feet at 475 Driggs Avenue, on the corner of N. 10th Street, where it is set to open in the next few months.

Fushimi will serve its famous selection of sushi and Japanese specialties and an open bar situated under a 30-foot glass enclosed ceiling. Fushimi offers a family-friendly, yet stylish setting that will appeal to upscale, late-night crowds, as well as families and hipsters alike.

The restaurant is set to be as exciting a neighborhood fixture in Williamsburg as it has been in Staten Island for the past eight years, and Bay Ridge, Brooklyn for four.

Winick Realty Group LLC’s Diana D. Boutross represented both the restaurant and ownership, Driggs Development, in this long-term lease transaction

H&R Block in Five-Year Upper West Side Deal

With tax season behind them, H&R Block, the Kansas City -based tax services provider, has scouted new space on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. The new 2,432-square-foot lease, at 208 West 96th Street, was brokered earlier this month and will replace space previously leased at nearby 750 Columbus Avenue. The asking rent was $115 a square foot annually.

With a five-year lease and a five-year option, the deal will put H&R inside the glass-façade base of a recently constructed rental building developed by Catalpa Development, brokers said.

Joseph Isa and Steven Weissmann, senior managing directors at Winick Realty Group, brokered the lease on behalf of Catalpa. Craig Hantgan of Esquire Properties, represented H&R Block in the transaction.

“This is a great move for H&R Block as the new location gives them greater visibility and puts them in a more high-traffic area,” Mr. Isa said. “They are also moving into a beautiful new construction where they are the first tenants to ever occupy the space.”
