Winick Realty Group Markets Multi-Level Retail/Office Opportunity on Second Avenue 

hal-shapiro-258x300Winick Realty Group’s Hal Shapiro has been named the exclusive broker marketing a prime retail and office availability in Midtown East on behalf of Equity Residential.

The retail at 755 Second Avenue, located between East 40th and East 41st Streets, features 3,167 square feet on the ground floor with high ceilings and 40 feet of valuable Second Avenue frontage. The ground floor can be expanded to 4,264 square feet by altering the current storefront, bringing it forward to be flush with the building.

Currently Med Scan, the ground floor can be leased alone or in combination with 10,944 square feet of office space on the second floor and 9,666 square feet of office space on the third floor. Two elevators are already in place.

“This building is situated in the middle of a dense residential neighborhood that is only going to get stronger with all of the new residential developments being built on First and Second Avenues,” said Shapiro. “On top of that, the building is close to NYU Langone Medical Center and it’s easily accessible via the FDR Drive and the Midtown Tunnel, with parking available on site to accommodate those cars.”

One striking feature of the retail site is that the second floor includes 800 square feet of patio space, a rare amenity for Manhattan. According to Shapiro, this feature makes this space particularly well suited for schools or tech offices that are looking for outdoor seating.

Winick Realty Group Leases Fifth New York Location for Schnippers 

steven-baker-258x300Schnippers, the well-known fast casual eatery with four Manhattan locations, signed a lease for approximately 3,300 square feet of ground-floor retail at 120 Church Street.

“120 Church Street is a unique and dynamic location for Schnippers, putting them in close proximity to Tribeca and the City Hall area, as well as just a few blocks from the World Trade Center,” said Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker, who represented Schnippers in the lease transaction. “I expect that they will be very successful here.”

The restaurant, located between Park Place and Murray Street, is scheduled to open by the end of 2015. It will be Schnippers second downtown location, having recently opened at the concourse at One New York Plaza in a deal that was also brokered by Baker.

“We are thrilled to expand to the vibrant World Trade Center area with our fifth location and are excited to be a part of the Renaissance of Downtown,” added Andrew Schnipper, founder and owner of Schnipper Restaurants.

Along with his brother Jonathan, Schnipper was founder and owner of Hale & Hearty Soups from 1995 to 2006. The Schnippers restaurant chain is known for serving “good old-fashioned American food” such as burgers, hot dogs, salads and shakes. They currently operate restaurants in the New York Times Building on 41st Street and Eighth Avenue, the Credit Suisse headquarters on 23rd Street and Madison Avenue, and the REBNY headquarters at Lexington Avenue and 51st Street, in addition to the new 1 New York Plaza location.

Landlord Clipper Equity was represented by Ross Berkowitz and Andrew Stern of RKF.

Winick Realty Group Leases Flagship Bryant Park Retail Location for Between the Bread 

jordan-kaplan-print-ver-profile-001Between the Bread, the popular corporate catering and events business that has been serving New York City’s office community since 1979, has signed a lease for a Bryant Park retail flagship location at 20A East 40th Street.

The 1,200-square-foot location, which will open in Fall 2015, is Between the Bread’s first rebranded retail storefront, which will serve healthy, high-quality meals prepared daily at their main commissary and retail location at 145 West 55th Street.

“Unlike new companies that can create a current persona for New York City, Between the Bread has been a brand here for 35 years. With this new location, we are able to reinvent ourselves and create a foothold in Midtown with a concept that is modern, creative and relevant,” said Ricky Eisen, President and Founder of Between the Bread.

The brand is focused on serving healthy, sophisticated meals that are fresh, well-cooked, locally-sourced and filling. “We want to help people understand what healthy eating can be,” said Jonathan Eisen, Vice President of Development for Between the Bread.

The storefront at 20A East 40th Street positions the brand not only next to one of New York City’s most recognizable landmarks but also within walking distance of many corporate offices and white collar workers, who are the brand’s core clientele. The fundamentally grab-and-go store offers approximately 20 to 30 seats and features high ceilings and a retractable glass exterior wall with lots of natural light to show off the food offerings.

“We want our stores to be interactive, easy to move through and to offer a feeling that is reflective of the high quality of the food,” said Jonathan Eisen, who also noted that Between the Bread has become an environmentally-conscious brand, using recycled paper and glass products in lieu of plastic.

Winick Realty Group’s Jordan Kaplan and Kenneth Hochhauser represented Between the Bread in the lease transaction and they are continuing to work with the brand as they expand into more central business districts throughout Manhattan.

“It’s not often you get to work with such wonderful people as Ricky and Jon,” said Kaplan. “Their food is a reflection of who they are—wholesome, welcoming—and they will be a great addition to the Bryant Park retail market. We are excited to help them reinvent their brand and look forward to continuing our relationship.”

Landlord Dom Ben Realty Corp. was represented by Benjamin Fox and Michael Azarian of Cushman & Wakefield.

Winick Realty Group’s Gary Krauss Signs Jersey Mike’s Leases in Five New Markets 

Gary Krauss - Phil Nisbet-edtdWinick Realty Group announced that Gary Krauss, the exclusive broker for Jersey Mike’s in New Jersey, has negotiated five new leases on behalf of the popular sandwich chain. In each of the lease transactions, Jersey Mike’s will be entering the market for the first time.

The restaurant leased 1,800 square feet at 1350 Galloping Hill Road, part of the Galloping Hill Shopping Center in Union, NJ, where it joins a new Seabra Foods market, Walter Bauman’s Jewelers and Citibank.The center faces a six-way intersection, sits a half-mile from the Garden State Parkway and abuts Merck & Company’s headquarters, all factors that bring a large daytime population to the market. This is the second location for Jersey Mike’s operator Phil Nisbet, who also runs the brand’s Warren, NJ location. Landlord Alshak Realty was represented by Marcia Minton of Levin Management.

Jersey Mike’s entered the West Caldwell Market with a 1,427-square-foot lease at 757 Bloomfield Avenue, where Jersey Mike’s is replacing a Just Salad location. “The town did a great job of zoning dozens of businesses just out of sight of the main streets. So West Caldwell has a strong business base, but a small-town feel in the center,” said Krauss. “For Jersey Mike’s that means great lunchtime business.” This is the ninth location for Jersey Mike’s operators Matt Catania and John Helm. Landlord MSM Center Associates was represented by Glenn Evans of Team Resources, Inc.

In Hillsborough, NJ, Jersey Mike’s signed a lease to join a new development being added onto the Walgreens-anchored Shoppes at Raider Boulevard. Located at 706 Route 206, the 1,600-square-foot storefront sits at the signalized intersection of Route 206 and Raider Boulevard. It is within walking distance from Hillsborough High School, with approximately 2400 students, and across Route 206 from the Hillsborough Cinema. This is the first location for Jersey Mike’s operators Jesse Allen and Amanda Taibe. Landlord Hillsborough Lawn & Garden Equipment, Inc. was represented in-house by Sean Leonard, Principal.

Replacing an existing Subway restaurant, Jersey Mike’s leased 1,300 square feet for a corporate store at 2100 Route 35 in Ocean Township, NJ. Less than three miles from New Jersey beaches, this location is at the busy signalized intersection of Route 35 and West Park Avenue, where it will service residents of the affluent shore towns of Elberon, Deal and West Long Branch. Jersey Mike’s joins a popular Starbucks location, as well as Supercuts, at the center. Rite Aid Pharmacy and BJ’s Wholesale Club are also located nearby. Landlord DAG Properties, LLC was represented by Sal Dellomo of Summit Realty Services.

Finally, the restaurant chain leased 1,200 square feet for a corporate store at 1260 Springfield Avenue, part of The Village Shopping Center in New Providence, NJ. This A&P-anchored shopping center is home to Smashburger, Starbucks and an authentic Chinese Dim Sum restaurant. The center also includes a Chipotle Mexican Grill whose lease was negotiated by Winick Realty Group NJ Senior Vice President and Founding Partner Daniel Spector.

“This space was skirting the smaller side of Jersey Mike’s prototype, but since we knew Chipotle was going in, I recommended to Jersey Mike’s that they find a way to fit into space directly adjacent,” said Krauss, who also negotiated the lease for Pure Barre, a few doors down in the same center. “Their architect did an amazing job. It’s a home-run lineup: Starbucks, Chipotle, and then Jersey Mike’s. Sales have been excellent.”

Landlord Urstadt Biddle Properties was represented by CJ Huter of The Goldstein Group.

Winick Realty Group Brings Buffalo Wild Wings to Mercer County, NJ 

tyler-bennet-258x3005Buffalo Wild Wings is preparing to open its first location in Mercer County, NJ following the purchase of a former Chili’s location at 3465 US Highway 1 in West Windsor.

Winick Realty Group NJ founding partner and senior vice president Tyler Bennett represented AntSul Group LLC (dba Buffalo Wild Wings) in the off-market transaction, which marks Buffalo Wild Wings’ sixth location in New York and New Jersey.

“AntSul Group had been looking for space in this market for many years,” said Bennett, who pointed to such desirable factors as the area’s strong daytime population, density of office buildings and stable residential market.

Bennett actively pursued the owners of the building, Mishawaka, Ind.-based Quality Dining Inc., a franchise operator that runs 48 Chili’s restaurants in six states. With this transaction, AntSul Group acquired 6.8 acres of property, including a 6,000-square-foot building out of which Buffalo Wild Wings will operate when it opens in late October. The restaurant also purchased Chili’s liquor license.

The stand-alone building is situated on Route 1, where more than 50,000 cars will pass by the site every day. It is also well-positioned in the market, standing between a Whole Foods and the 1.1 million-square-foot Nassau Park Pavillion Shopping Center, which is anchored by Wal-Mart and Wegmans.

“It’s hard to find a location in this market with great visibility and room for on-site parking,” said Bennett. “We were lucky to have found one of the top-tier restaurant locations in the state of New Jersey.

“We are anxious to begin renovations on the existing Chili’s,” said Stephen Sullivan, president of AntSul Group. “We feel in this market, with this location, opening as a Buffalo Wild Wings, we will be adding another strong restaurant to our portfolio.”

Bennett is continuing to work with AntSul Group to find additional Buffalo Wild Wings locations in Staten Island, NY, as well as Hamilton Township and New Brunswick, NJ. The company is seeking 5,500-7,500 square-foot spaces with a minimum of 50 feet of frontage and parking for 125 cars. A liquor license is required. Buffalo Wild Wings is interested in both properties for lease and for sale, with a preference towards former restaurants, end caps, pad sites and free-standing buildings.
