Winick Realty Group Leases Farmers Insurance Branch Location at New Jersey’s Copper Tree Mall 

susan-preisler-print-ver-profile-001M. Gale Insurance Agency, LLC, a branch of Farmers Insurance, signed a lease for a new location in the Copper Tree Mall, located at 350 Ramapo Valley Rd. in Oakland, NJ. The 1,050-square-foot space replaces the company’s previous location at 266 Harristown Road in Glen Rock, NJ.

“Farmers Insurance had approached Monte Gale and Glenn Ajamian to open a Bergen County Farmers Insurance Branch in a retail location rather than a strictly office environment they had previously occupied in Glen Rock,” said Winick Realty Group NJ’s Susan Preisler. “It was a pleasure to work with them to find them their new location.”

From day one, Preisler felt that Copper Tree Mall was the perfect place for this tenant, in part because the center is also home to a branch of the State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.

“Their business is thriving,” Preisler said. “On any given day, they are writing up 10 -20 new quotes generated through State of New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission walking traffic alone.”

Preisler represented both M. Gale Insurance Agency and landlord Washington Square Owner, LLC in the lease transaction.

Winick Realty Group Leases First Manhattan Location For Educational Toy Store Learning Express Toys 

charles-rapuano-258x3009Learning Express Toys, a leading franchisor of educational toy stores with 130 locations across the country, signed a lease for its first Manhattan location at 1029 Third Avenue, located on the Southeast corner of East 61st Street on the Upper East Side.

Each of Learning Express Toys’ locations is locally owned and operated and their Manhattan shop is no exception. “This franchisee found the brand because she was searching for educational toys for her children,” said Winick Realty Group’s Charles Rapuano. “She was impressed with the company and wanted to open their first store in Manhattan.”

Learning Express Toys was drawn to the location—which comprises 818 square feet on the ground floor and 850 square feet in the basement—because of the population density and disposable income in the neighborhood. They were also happy to join prestigious co-tenants like Bloomingdales and Dylan’s Candy Bar, with whom Rapuano says the brand “has good synergy because they reach the same core customer.”

Rapuano represented Learning Express Toys and landlord Olshan Properties was represented in house in the long-term lease transaction. Learning Express Toys is slated to open in December.

Winick Realty Group Markets Rare Column-Free Retail Space in Hell’s Kitchen 

452 West 45th Street rendering croppedPearlbud Realty Corporation has selected Winick Realty Group to exclusively market a rare column-free retail availability on the Far West Side of Manhattan. 452 West 45th Street is located between Ninth and Tenth Avenues, steps from such heavily-trafficked neighborhoods and landmarks as Hudson Yards, Times Square, Theatre District, Port Authority and Gotham West Market.

“A wide variety of tenants would do phenomenally well in this space, where they will draw from the dense Hell’s Kitchen residences, as well as tourists, theatergoers, office workers and everything in between,” said Aaron S. Fishbein, who is marketing the retail space along with Jordan Kaplan.

“The close proximity to the Westside Highway and Lincoln Tunnel will allow for easy access by customers from other areas of Manhattan and New Jersey,” added Kaplan.

Fishbein and Kaplan are targeting restaurants, biergartens and commissaries that can take advantage of the venting that’s possible via one-story setback, as well as fitness, education and gallery/showroom uses. The retail space comprises 2,500 square feet with brick exposure and 16-foot ceilings that lead up to a skylight. Tenants will have two separate entrances—a normal entryway and an oversized industrial entrance for maximum exposure. The opportunity for a new designed storefront is also available.

Winick Realty Group Leases Midtown East Corner to Chelsea Bagel 

hal-shapiro-258x300Chelsea Bagel, a popular bagel bakery operating on West 14th Street for the past five years, has leased its second Manhattan location.

The kosher-style bakery, which does all of its baking on site, signed a lease for 1,150 square feet at 800 Second Avenue, on the Southeast corner of East 43rd Street in Midtown East. Winick Realty Group’s Matthew Schuss represented the tenant, who will operate as Chelsea Bagel of Tudor City when their doors open on January 1, 2015.

“After a long search for the perfect second location, Chelsea Bagel is very excited to come to 800 Second Avenue,” said Schuss. “This neighborhood has been lacking a high-quality bagel café and with the Pfizer building across the street and the Israeli consulate in their building, Chelsea Bagel will be well-positioned to serve the heavy concentration of office workers and residents in the neighborhood.”

Hal Shapiro, also of Winick Realty Group, represented landlord Philips International in the long-term lease transaction.

Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker and Aaron S. Fishbein represented landlord TF Cornerstone Inc. in this lease transaction. Baker had previously leased space in the building to Tres Carnes and Fields Chicken, creating a restaurant destination on Maiden Lane that also includes Potbelly, Chipotle, Dig Inn, Starbucks, Just Salad, Hale & Hearty, Chop’t, Roti, Tous Crepes and Au Bon Pain.

“Maiden Lane is teeming with dining options, but there was still an unmet need for a health-oriented juice concept like Juice Generation,” said Baker.

“They will be a great complement to Soul Cycle, which is opening on the second floor of 101 Maiden Lane in November,” said Steve Gonzalez, director of retail leasing for TF Cornerstone. “We are pleased to welcome them to the neighborhood.”

Benjamin Birnbaum of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented Juice Generation, which will occupy 1,683 square feet of ground floor retail space. Juice Generation is slated to open in early 2015.
