Winick Realty Group Signs Upper East Side Lease with Irving Farm Coffee Roasters
New York-based coffee company Irving Farm Coffee Roasters signed a lease for its first Upper East Side storefront, the brand’s sixth in New York City and seventh in New York State. The café will encompass 1,745 square feet of ground-floor space, as well as 975 square feet in the basement, at 1424 Third Avenue, located between East 80th and East 81st Streets.
“Irving Farm Coffee Roasters’ character and charm is going to be a great addition to this stretch of Third Avenue, which is home to a handful of national coffee chains but no local cafés that place such a strong emphasis on locally sourced and homemade food, in addition to one of the best coffee programs in the city,” said Winick Realty Group’s Matthew Schuss, who represented the tenant in the lease transaction.
The tenant is in the process of renovating the interior and exterior of the space to create the signature welcoming feel that is found at all of their locations. The cafe will feature a wide array of craft beverages prepared by experienced baristas who participate in Irving Farm’s extensive education program, as well as an eclectic and health-conscious food menu, and a retail display where customers can purchase the company’s latest coffees, which are roasted upstate at a brand new state-of-the-art roastery in Millerton, NY.
Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker and Charles Rapuano represented the landlord—the Brodsky Organization—who happily welcomes Irving Farm Coffee Roasters to the Upper East Side. “Ownership felt that they would be a great fit for not only the building but also the neighborhood,” said Baker.
Formerly home to Natural Frontier Market for 20 years, the retail space features 15-foot ceilings on the ground floor a combination of large windows and 35 feet of frontage that bring a lot of natural light into the store, which is expected to open in spring 2016.
