Winick Realty Group Leases Retail Corner at Related Companies’ The Strathmore
Manhattan Schoolhouse, a Reggio Emilia-inspired daycare and preschool program for children ages six weeks to five years, has signed a lease for their second Upper East Side location at 1608 First Avenue.
Manhattan Schoolhouse, who was represented by Daniele Kurzweil of Julie Friedman Realty, will occupy 1,981 square feet of ground-floor space and 1,160 square feet in the lower level on the Southeast Corner of East 84 th Street and First Avenue.
Formerly Citi Habitats, the new school sits at the base of The Strathmore, a luxury rental apartment building owned by Related Companies. It is located just south of Manhattan Schoolhouse’s existing school at 1624 First Avenue, allowing them to accommodate their long waitlist, giving preference to residents of the Strathmore.
“Manhattan Schoolhouse had outgrown their original Upper East Side location and wanted to open a second school as close by as possible in order to meet local demand,” said Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker, who represented Related Companies along with Winick Realty Group Director Charles Rapuano.
“At the same time, ownership was seeking a tenant that would be an amenity to the building, which is home to many young families,” added Rapuano. “This lease transaction successfully met the needs of both parties and will become a great asset to families living in the neighborhood.”
