Winick Realty Group’s Hal Shapiro Completes Two Retail Leases at LIC’s PowerHouse Condominium 

hal-shapiro-258x300Winick Realty Group’s Hal Shapiro announced the completion of two retail leases at the base of the 177-unit PowerHouse Condominium, located at 50-09 Second Street in Long Island City.

The 6,422-square-foot space, which landlord V Partners LLC refurbished following Hurricane Sandy-related flooding, was divided to accommodate incoming tenant Tiger J Taekwondo and an expansion by existing building tenant Brighter Babies.

“This section of Long Island City is undergoing a considerable change with new schools being built and 5,000 residential units currently under construction in the immediate area,” said Shapiro, who represented ownership in both transactions. “There is an entire community of new families moving onto the Long Island City Waterfront, making preschool and afterschool activities an important service for the neighborhood.”

Brighter Babies, an early childhood education facility serving children ages three months to three years, leased an additional 3,459 square feet, practically doubling the size of their four-year-old location to approximately 8,000 square feet. The tenant is currently building out the space, which will be incorporated into their existing school. Shapiro represented Brighter Babies in the lease transaction.

Tiger J Taekwondo, which leased a 2,963-square-foot space at the building, was represented by Daniel Kim of Charles Rutenberg Realty.

Winick Realty Group Brings Retail to 22 Spring Street for the First Time with Two New Leases 

22 Spring PhotoWinick Realty Group announced the successful leasing of two retail storefronts at 22 Spring Street, between Mott and Elizabeth Streets in Nolita. The 700-square-foot spaces were previously ground-floor apartments and had never housed retail before.

“Landlord Samy Mahfar made a substantial investment to refurbish what had previously been an eyesore on the block,” said Winick Realty Group Executive Vice President Darrell Rubens, who represented Mahfar along with Lee Block. “He refaced the building and created retail space at the base in order to make the block and the building a better fit for the neighborhood.”

Rubens and Block worked with Mahfar at every step of the leasing process, consulting with him as he designed the retail storefronts, installed new floors and restored the exposed brick walls in the spaces. While they had numerous offers on the table, ownership ultimately decided to lease the two retail spaces to Paint Box, an art gallery and custom framing store with five other Manhattan locations, and The Clay Pot, a boutique jewelry store with one location in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

“Samy felt that these uses were the best fits for the neighborhood,” said Rubens. “They are upscale, clean and lively new additions to the block.”

Winick Realty Group’s Matthew Ball represented Paint Box, which is opening in October, and also assisted Rubens and Block in representing Mahfar in The Clay Pot lease. The Clay Pot, which will be open in time for the holiday season, was represented by Andrew Mendel and Lindsay Charles of Ripco.

(TSX: TFI), signed a triple net lease for six floors at 34 West 36th Street, located between Fifth and Sixth Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.

The company will combine its two New York offices in this new location, which includes approximately 1,800 square feet of ground-floor retail and five floors of office space above, each with approximately 1,700-square-foot floor plates.

“It is unusual for all of a building’s office leases to expire together, along with the retail space,” said Winick Realty Group’s Jordan Kaplan, who represented landlord Haddad International along with Winick Realty Group’s Kenneth Hochhauser and Zach Diamond. “We were pleased to secure such a strong tenant for the building in a rare opportunity that worked out well for all parties involved.”

“For Dynamex, as a logistics company, it was a perfect match because this location keeps them in the center of the city with great access to their clients, transportation and more,” said Michael Gochman of Transwestern, who represented Dynamex along with Jonathan Schifrin of Jones Lang LaSalle.

“We had been working with Dynamex for a number of years and when this great opportunity came along, we jumped on it,” added Schifrin.
