aaron-fishbein-258x3006Winick Realty Group announced three new retail leases at 400 Broome Street, fronting Kenmare, Cleveland and Broome Streets in Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood. Aaron S. Fishbein and Darrell Rubens, Executive Vice President, of Winick Realty Group represented landlord Coral Broome Street LLC as they repositioned and upgraded these ground-floor retail opportunities.

“Ownership white-boxed the spaces, upgraded the utilities and installed new floor-to-ceiling glass storefronts. These improvements allowed us to attract top-notch tenants,” said Fishbein.

Fillmore and 5th Designer Consignment, part of parent company Crossroads Trading Inc., a California-based clothing store with locations in Palo Alto and San Francisco, leased its first New York store in the building under the address 398 Broome Street. The 1,680-square-foot ground-floor space includes a basement and is expected to open in the third quarter of 2014. Jordan Cohn of SCG Retail represented the retail tenant.

On the Kenmare Street side of the building, Sweetgreen leased its third Manhattan location at 100 Kenmare Street. Also expected to open in the third quarter of 2014, Sweetgreen will occupy 2,400 square feet on the ground floor and 1,600 square feet of basement space that was recently built by ownership. Taryn Brandes of SCG Retail represented Sweetgreen.

At 7 Cleveland Place, Paul Fox Salon signed a lease for approximately 950 square feet on the ground floor. The salon, which has already opened, was represented by Joseph Robinson from Bond NY.

“Nolita has long been considered an up-and-coming neighborhood,” said Fishbein, “and the arrival of such high-class, well-established brands confirms that the area has truly arrived.”

aaron-fishbein-258x3006Winick Realty Group announced that President Steven E. Baker and Aaron S. Fishbein have completed the retail leasing for TF Cornerstone’s East Coast Development, a sprawling mixed-use project on the Long Island City Waterfront that consists of six buildings with approximately 3,000 apartments. The eight retail leases were signed at 4545 Center Boulevard, 4540 Center Boulevard, 4610 Center Boulevard, 4615 Center Boulevard and 4630 Center Boulevard.

“Through the strong market knowledge we have gained by working with many Long Island City developers, as well as assisting many active retailers, we were able to achieve record rent numbers and secure strong tenants on behalf of TF Cornerstone,” said Fishbein.

At 4545 Center Boulevard, the newly-signed retail tenants reflect the changing demographics of the area, focusing on health and wellness and family. I Love Kickboxing, the men’s and women’s fitness program with one location in Chelsea and locations throughout the country, leased a 2,967-square-foot studio in the building, while Mimi & Mo, a children’s salon and clothing store, will occupy 1,239 square feet. Jonathan Krieger from RKF represented I Love Kickboxing, while Baker and Fishbein represented Mimi & Mo. Fishbein also represented European Wax Center, a national chain offering a full array of waxing services for men and women, which leased 1,252 square feet at the complex. These tenants will join New York Kids Club, who is set to open their 5,003-square-foot classroom and gym space in 2014.

At 4610 Center Boulevard, an as-yet-unnamed Italian Restaurant from TD Restaurant Group signed a lease for a 7,733-square-foot ground floor restaurant located directly behind the iconic Pepsi sign. Harris Bulow of Signature Partners represented the restaurant, which will also occupy an incredible 2,200-square-foot outdoor terrace overlooking the East River.

Baker has been instrumental in building the retail component of the East Coast Development, acting as TF Cornerstone’s exclusive broker at the development. He previously helped to bring popular Latin fusion restaurant Blend, Sweetleaf Coffee and Espresso Bar, and Crank Cycling Studio to the complex.

“Working together with Winick Realty Group, we have been able to craft an incredible mix of retailers that will serve the residents in the East Coast Development, as well as the entire Long Island City community,” said Steve N. Gonzalez, Head of Retail Leasing for TF Cornerstone.

“We are proud to have completed leasing on the largest retail development in Long Island City on behalf of TF Cornerstone,” said Baker. “Winick Realty Group continues to be a major force in the Long Island City retail marketplace as we exclusively represent many of the area’s most high-profile properties and incoming availabilities.”

Baker and Fishbein, along with broker Jeremy Schwartz, are currently marketing up to 150,000 square feet of game-changing retail in Long Island City at 30-30 Northern Boulevard on behalf of Alma Realty Corp.
