Winick Realty Group Named Exclusive Broker for Artists & Fleas

daniyel-cohen-print-ver-profile-001Winick Realty Group proudly announced that the company has been named the exclusive broker representing Artists & Fleas in their Manhattan expansion. Director Aaron S. Fishbein and Associate Daniyel Cohen are working with the brand to find flagship locations on main shopping corridors throughout Manhattan, with a particular emphasis on SoHo.

Artists & Fleas creates curated retail marketplaces that offer a dynamic retail experience where customers can shop from, interact with and discover one-of-a-kind products made by local designers, artists, and independent brands. Vendors selling items such as clothing and jewelry, art, design and home goods, are rotated in and out of the space, ensuring that the Artists & Fleas experience is never the same twice.

“Artists & Fleas is the future of retail,” said Fishbein. “As online sales encroach more and more on the traditional retail business, shops have had to become more experiential. Artists & Fleas has been a pioneer in this market since 2003, offering an incredibly dynamic shopping experience that attracts customers of all ages and from all walks of life.”

Since its founding in 2003, the company has grown to operate four locations—Chelsea Market and Williamsburg in New York, and Abbot Kinney, Venice and the Arts District in Los Angeles—that have hosted 250+ merchants and more than 25,000 visitors on a weekly basis.

“We are proud to have curated four distinct marketplaces since 2003, catering to local communities with one-of-a-kind shopping experiences,” said Amy Abrams of Artists & Fleas. “We look forward to bringing Artists & Fleas to SoHo, a neighborhood we regard as both a creative and shopping capital of Manhattan and a destination for both locals and tourists who appreciate the type of exciting retail concept that Artists & Fleas creates and provides.”

aaron-fishbein-print-ver-profile-001Luana, the renowned brand of elevated contemporary handbags and women’s accessories, has leased their first U.S. storefront at 155 Spring Street, between West Broadway and Wooster Street in the heart of SoHo.

Since Luana’s inception in Pelago, Italy in 1965, Luana has expressed feminine modernity, fusing timeless and classic design with contemporary production techniques to create iconic, modern objects that compliment all facets of modern life. Luana is in the midst of a relaunch under the ownership of 5M USA, who purchased the brand in 2013. This new flagship retail store, which will bring the Luana brand to SoHo shoppers and tourists of all ages, is now open.

Winick Realty Group Director Aaron S. Fishbein and Associate Daniyel Cohen represented Luana, while landlord Vornado Realty Trust was represented in-house by Edward Hogan and Mitchell Dearman. Ownership installed a new storefront in the space, which comprises 594 square feet on the ground floor and 432 square feet in the basement.

Their combination of old-fashioned service and accessible luxury will be a great fit on this street.”

The retail space, previously the home of Nada Sushi for 30 years, comprises 1,500 square feet on the ground floor, along with a 300-square-foot basement. Added Schuss, “The space not only offered great frontage and visibility, but also had a lot of character that Irving Farm liked. There was an old rustic feel to the space that the brand will be able to elevate as they build out the store to resemble other Irving Farm locations.”

Expected to open in January, this will be Irving Farm’s sixth brick-and-mortar and eighth location overall, including a nearby kiosk in Grand Central terminal.

Winick Realty Group Marketing the Retail at Cammeby’s Mixed-Use Coney Island, Brooklyn Redevelopment Project, Neptune/Sixth

neptune-and-west-5thCammeby’s has hired Winick Realty Group LLC to exclusively market the retail at Neptune/Sixth, a new community-oriented live, work, play neighborhood destination.

Located at the site of the former Trump Village Shopping Center, Neptune/Sixth will feature more than 250,000 square feet of premier retail, commercial and community-facility space combined; ample parking; new rental residences; and outdoor landscaping and seating areas spread between two newly-constructed buildings at 532 Neptune Avenue and 626 Sheepshead Bay Road.

The Winick Realty Group team of CEO Jeff Winick, Executive Vice Presidents Darrell Rubens and Lee Block, and Associate Danielle Winick has worked with Cammeby’s and S9 Architecture from the start of the project in order to make sure that the development provides a high-quality retail experience.

An important part of this vision has been working with existing tenants to relocate them during the construction process, maintaining continuity for the neighborhood and ensuring that important services are still offered. To this end, both Apple Bank and Capital One Bank have been moved into temporary trailers along Neptune Avenue so that they may continue operations during the construction period. In addition, Winick Realty Group recently completed a lease that will move CVS to a temporary location until they are able to relocate to their permanent space within Neptune/Sixth, comprising approximately 11,300 square feet of ground-floor retail space at 532 Neptune Avenue.

Retailers looking to join CVS, Apple Bank and Capital One Bank at 532 Neptune Avenue will be able to lease storefronts ranging from 582 to 45,000 square feet. At 626 Sheepshead Bay Road, ground-floor availabilities range from 1,129 to over 15,000 square feet. Both buildings feature ample all-glass frontage and high ceilings, as well as multiple elevators to access parking and loading docks that are dedicated for retailers’ use.

Neptune/Sixth is designed to support the local community, which includes more than 20,000 residents within walking distance, as well as more than a million residents who live within an eight-minute drive of the property. More than 20,000 cars pass the site on a daily basis, while the nearby F and Q subways bring 4.7 million subway riders to Coney Island each year.

“We are proud to be working with Cammeby’s to bring a new, vibrant streetscape of retail to this underserved market in Coney Island,” said Lee Block. “Cammeby’s has invested heavily in the neighborhood and Winick Realty Group is committed to helping them enrich the community with more exciting and modern options for shopping and dining.”
