162-Year-Old Luxury Bedding Brand Signs New Retail Lease Across From D&D Building

Charles_RapuanoCharles P. Rogers, who has been manufacturing fine beds, mattresses and bedding since it was founded in New York City in 1855, has signed a 10-year lease for their second Manhattan showroom at 213 East 59th Street.

Located between Second and Third Avenues, the storefront gives Charles P. Rogers strategic placement across from the entrance to the Decoration & Design Building and among a concentration of high-end home furnishing retailers including The Shade Store and Savoir Beds.

Winick Realty Group’s Charles Rapuano, President Steven E. Baker, and Jeremy Wintner represented landlord Chosen Equities in the Charles P. Rogers lease, as well as ownership in the Shade Store and Savoir Beds deals, making this the company’s third successful lease transaction on the block.

“We have seen this stretch of East 59th Street change from small mom-and-pop shops to a destination for sophisticated upscale retailers with real branding,” said Rapuano. “This block is the perfect place for Charles P. Rogers to set up their Midtown showroom and we are confident that they will find themselves positioned for great success.”

Sinvin’s Chris Owles and Sarah Shannon represented Charles P. Rogers, who will occupy 2,000 square feet of space, including 1,350 square feet on the ground floor and 730 square feet in the basement. The retail location also comes with 1,138 square feet of backyard space that is dedicated to the retail tenant.

Winick Realty Group Bring Innovative Fitness Concept to the Bowery for First Location

danielle-winick-print-ver-profile-002HitHouse, a new boutique kickboxing concept created by Muay Thai instructor and fighter Tyler Scott, has signed a lease for its first studio at 2 Spring Street, also known as 180 Bowery, in the heart of the Nolita/Bowery shopping district.

The 4,300-square-foot space is located at the lower level of the building, where it has its own retail entrance with frontage, as well as a small vestibule. The tenant was immediately drawn to the rugged feel and unique features of the space—including exposed brick, wooden beams and raw cast iron columns –as well as co-tenants Nudie Jeans and Kings Avenue Tattoo, who they felt were a good match for the HitHouse brand.

“This is a perfect marriage of space and use,” said Winick Realty Group’s Danielle Winick, who represented the tenant along with Daniyel Cohen. “HitHouse offers the high-end feel of a boutique studio but also stays true to the grittier roots of Thai boxing—a combination that is well represented in the building, the co-tenancy and the space itself.”

HitHouse will also have a sign band on Spring Street and blade signage on Bowery to draw the attention of the changing residential demographics of the area.

“The HitHouse aesthetic fits in perfectly with the needs of the local customers, whether they live in the many residential buildings under construction in Nolita or they work in nearby SoHo,” said Cohen.

They will offer group Muay Thai Kickboxing classes for all ages, genders and skill levels. Classes are taught by top level amateur and professional fighters, all of whom possess friendly, engaging and unique personalities.

The studio will feature HitHouse’s customized and patented striking bag, Bishop, which Scott designed to mitigate the swaying and momentum a traditional heavy bag creates when hanging from a chain. It features a carbon fiber pole on the inside that attaches floor to ceiling, as well as a mesh fiber cover that eliminates cuts and scrapes. Its uniquely-shaped outer shell allows strikes to be thrown from all angles and is filled with a high density urethane foam that prevents bruising and injury commonly caused by traditional equipment. According to Scott, this design is very forgiving to a beginner’s technique and makes it much easier to keep the rhythm and timing of throwing strikes that typically takes years to develop.

Landlord Bowery Spring Corp. was represented by Lisamarie Dixon of Paley Dixon.

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.

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.
