Two Boots Pizza Leases Two-Story Building for Lower Manhattan Flagship

86 Nassau St - pictureTwo Boots Pizza—the popular New York-based pizzeria with 17 locations in 6 states, plus Washington D.C. coming soon—has signed a 12-year lease for their Lower Manhattan flagship at 86A Nassau Street, near Fulton Street. Two Boots Pizza triple net leased the entire building, which features 750-square-foot floorplates on the ground floor, second floor and lower level.

“Two Boots Pizza had been looking in Lower Manhattan for years because they recognized that this was becoming a true seven-day neighborhood and they could provide a valuable service for the growing residential community,” said Winick Realty Group Director Aaron S. Fishbein, represented both Two Boots Pizza and landlord 86A ½ Nassau LLC along with his associate, Jeremy Wintner.

Previously a clothing store, the former tenants of 86A Nassau Street only utilized the building’s ground floor, leaving the second floor—with a hidden deco ceiling—abandoned for more than 20 years. Construction has already started on the property, as Two Boots Pizza is working closely with building ownership, spearheaded by Theresa Veltri, to fully restore the structure, bringing out the beauty in its classic architecture.

“We’re incredibly excited about both the building and the neighborhood,” said Two Boots Pizza owner Phil Hartman, “and we look forward to bringing our unique Cajun-Italian pizza and funky folk art deep into the heart of the financial district.” Plans include a pizzeria on the ground floor and a cozy bar/lounge on the second floor—plus the potential for rooftop seating.

Added Wintner, “This one-of-a-kind property will give them an amazing Downtown presence.”

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.”

Winick Realty Group’s Aaron S. Fishbein and Jeremy Wintner represented the tenant in the 15-year lease, while landlord Schube, LP was represented by Salon Realty.

Blue Dog Café will occupy 500 square feet on the ground floor, as well as 250 square feet in the basement, in a space that sits adjacent to the lobby of TF Cornerstone’s newly-renovated office building. Fishbein and Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker recently leased the retail in that adjacent building to Barry’s Boot Camp and Artisanal Bistro, creating an incredible tenant mix that attracted Blue Dog Café to the area.

“With this lease, Blue Dog Café is well-positioned to reach the local office population and the NoMad residential population, who have demonstrated a growing need for a boutique café to complement the existing retail in the neighborhood,” said Wintner. “They are an established tenant with a great concept and they will fill that role well.”

Wintner and Fishbein are continuing to work with Blue Dog Café as they expand throughout Manhattan.
