Winick Realty Group Secures Corner Downtown Brooklyn Location For Stolle Pie Shop 

aaron-fishbein-002Eastern European café chain Stolle signed a lease for its first Brooklyn location, securing 550 square feet of prime ground-floor retail space with 40 feet of all-glass corner frontage at 119 Court Street on the corner of State Street in Downtown Brooklyn.

“We are excited to be able to bring Stolle to Downtown Brooklyn,” said Winick Realty Group’s Aaron S. Fishbein, Stolle’s exclusive broker in New York City, who represented the bakery in the 10-year lease transaction. “This is a prime retail corner, surrounded by not only an incredibly strong co-tenancy—including Trader Joes, Maison Kayser, Barnes and Nobles, United Artists Theatre and Lenscrafters—but also a dense office and residential population.”

Earlier in 2015, Fishbein leased a retail and commissary space for Stolle at Jamestown LP’s Falchi Building in Long Island City. That commissary will service the Court Street location, as well as four additional sites that Fishbein is actively negotiating in prime Manhattan markets. Like the Court Street market, these Manhattan sites feature strong demographics that lend themselves to a healthy three-part business opportunity—breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a robust delivery business.

“Stolle prides itself on incredibly fresh products and thanks to 119 Court Street’s proximity to our Long Island City commissary, we will be able to bring in fresh pies three to four times a day,” said Irina Belska, who is spearheading the effort to bring the Stolle brand to America. “Being able to occupy a prime retail corner in an area with so many business drivers aligns with our business model and meets our many site requirements. We look forward to working with Winick Realty Group to lease additional locations as the Stolle brand expands into New York City.”

Set to open in September 2015, Stolle’s new storefront is a corner division of Tio Pio, the sublessors on the space, who were represented by Winick Realty Group’s Jordan Kaplan and Zach Diamond.

“Our client is extremely happy to welcome Stolle to the building,” said Diamond. “They will be a wonderful complement to the neighborhood and they look forward to being successful together.”

Stolle continues to seek sites in Manhattan ranging from 300 to 700 square feet. Venting and basement space are not required. Potential sites should be sent to afishbein@winick.com.

aaron-fishbein-web-ver-profile-001Balade, the popular Lebanese restaurant located at 208 First Avenue in the East Village, has signed a lease at 144 West 37th Street, where the company will launch its brand new QSR concept, serving customizable grab-and-go options such as salads and sandwiches.

Winick Realty Group’s Jeremy Wintner and Aaron S.

Situated between Broadway and Seventh Avenue in the heart of the evolving Garment District, Balade’s new storefront is surrounded by a dense office and tourist population.

“The restaurant market in New York City has been changing so that restaurants no longer have to be located on the avenues in order to be successful and side streets like this one are now viable locations,” said Wintner and Fishbein in a joint statement. “Combine that with the incredible changes happening in the Garment Center, with more offices, hotels and high-end retail attracting an ever-growing clientele, and we are confident that this is an ideal spot for Balade to run a successful operation.”

Baker, president of Winick Realty Group. “I congratulate him and welcome him to the executive team.”

A native of New York City, Gleicher grew up with a keen understanding of and attraction to the retail business. Getting an early education in retail from his father, the late founder of regional retail chain Innovation Luggage, Michael further solidified his passion for the real estate business while earning a degree at Duke University. Following his graduation, Michael moved back to New York City and began his career in retail brokerage at Winick Realty Group.

Over the past seven years, Gleicher has made a name for himself representing some of Manhattan’s biggest and most prestigious retail projects, working on assignments on behalf of prominent property owners such as SL Green Realty Corp, Columbia University, Rudin Management and Madison Capital, to name a few.

Gleicher’s impressive leasing career includes such highlights as securing the new NBA Store flagship location at 545 Fifth Avenue along with CEO Jeff Winick on behalf of the Moinian Group; solidifying Buffalo Wind Wings’ Manhattan presence with a 15,000-square-foot, multi-level Times Square flagship; working with Rudin Management to secure the relocation of Upper East Side institution Grace’s Marketplace to their new home on Second Avenue and East 68th Street; leasing one of the first Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores in Manhattan at West 68th Street and Broadway along with CEO Jeff Winick, Executive Vice President Darrell Rubens, Lee Block and Kelly Gedinsky on behalf of Madison Capital; and spearheading the Manhattan rollout of Brazilian footwear brand Havianas, most notably with the leasing of their global store at 2 Times Square. Gleicher was also integral to the growth of the Duane Reade brand in the New York Metropolitan Area, assisting CEO Jeff Winick in finding locations for the expansion of Duane Reade over the past seven years.

Gleicher is currently marketing more than 43,000 square feet of prime retail at 3 Columbus Circle along with Patty Holmstrom and Kelly Gedinsky on behalf of the Moinian Group and SL Green, and is part of the broker teams tasked with exclusively marketing the first retail spaces at Columbia University’s new Manhattanville Campus and several prominent retail properties in Times Square.

Winick Realty Group Exclusively Markets Two Boutique Retail Sites on Behalf of TF Cornerstone  

71 University Place Flyer (thunder-blue) photoWinick Realty Group announced that President Steven E. Baker and his associate Aaron S. Fishbein are bringing to market two boutique retail spaces on behalf of TF Cornerstone.

“We are proud to once again work with TF Cornerstone to market some of the most exciting new retail sites in their Manhattan portfolio,” said Baker. “These availabilities represent an opportunity for the right retailer to become part of some of Manhattan’s most dynamic and diverse neighborhoods.”

The available retail space at 107 Horatio Street is located on one of the most exciting blocks in the Meatpacking District, sitting just south of the new Whitney Museum and near the entrance to the High Line. Located between Washington and West Streets, the storefront is housed at the base of the 320-unit West Coast luxury residential building, also known as 95 Horatio Street, and is situated next to the building lobby. The availability comprises 1,113 square feet on the ground floor and 1,500 square feet in the selling lower level. All non-cooking uses will be considered for the space, which features high ceilings and ample glass frontage.

Baker and Fishbein are also exclusively marketing a prime Greenwich Village retail availability at 71 University Place, between East 10th and East 11th Streets.

This high-density neighborhood features a fantastic mix of shoppers, students, residents and office workers and the retail site is poised to not only capture that foot traffic but also pull from the nearby Union Square Market.

“These boutique retail availabilities offer two great opportunities to reach a diverse mix of tourists, residents, office, shoppers and students on some of the most densely-populated corridors of the city,” added Steve Gonzalez, Director of Retail Leasing for TF Cornerstone.
