MedRite Urgent Care Opens First Location

919 Second AvenueMedRite Urgent Care, a state-of-the-art medical clinic, has opened its first location at 919 Second Avenue, is in Manhattan. Owner and administrator Samuel Fisch leased the space—which sits below a newly-built condominium and next to a recently-opened TD Bank—with the help of Winick Realty Group LLC’s Tatiana Jung-Voevodina and executive vice president Lori Shabtai, who represented both the tenant and the landlord in the transaction.

“There are no major hospitals or medical centers in the area, so this is something the community really needed,” explained Dr. Douglas Kaiden, one of the doctors at MedRite. “We’ll be able to serve all of the families, businesses and people working in the area on a day-to-day basis. Patients can get in and out fast with good care and less cost, in an environment that’s cleaner than an ER.”

MedRite accepts walk-in patients, as well as those who make appointments on their website,, on all major insurance plans. The 3,000-square-foot facility took six months to build out and includes on-site laboratory and x-ray services, as well as examination rooms manned by five board-certified emergency physicians.

“We are very happy with how it turned out,” said Fisch, who plans to eventually expand in Manhattan and make this a 24-hour location. “Our facility is spacious, state-of-the-art and there is a need for it.”

Fortunoff site next to Bergdorf on 57th hits market

shoppers on fifth avenueThe West 57th Street space that formerly housed upscale retailer Fortunoff is on the market. Winick Realty Group was recently assigned as the exclusive brokerage for the 11,100-square-foot retail space at 3 W. 57th St., just off Fifth Avenue. Winick becomes the latest in a series of firms to market the space since Fortunoff’s 2009 bankruptcy filing.

The property includes 3,700 square feet in the basement, 4,000 square feet on the ground floor, and 3,400 square feet on the second floor, according to CoStar Group. It is also right next door to luxury landmark Bergdorf Goodman and near other high-end fashion tenants on the gilded strip of upper Fifth Avenue.

Over the last two years, the site has housed several pop-up stores from such high-brow companies as Gucci and Louis Vuitton. They leased the space for short periods under landlord Rosebud Associates. It is now searching for a long-term tenant to fill the space, which is currently occupied by a discount apparel company whose lease expires at the end of this month.

Indian eatery to add spice to Upper East Side

1664 Third Avenue A British-themed Indian restaurant is expanding to the Upper East Side.

Brick Lane Curry House, an Indian restaurant named after the famed street in East London that is home to many curry restaurants, signed a 15-year lease for 7,000 square feet at 1664 Third Ave. The lease includes nearly 2,800 square feet on the ground floor, plus a 1,600-square-foot mezzanine and a 2,600-square-foot basement. The asking rent works out to $77 per square foot for the ground floor space. The new restaurant will open in June.

Started in 2002 by Ajit Snigh Bains and Satinder Sharma, Brick Lane Curry House already has outposts on East Sixth Street and East 53rd Street. The menu at the British-Indian restaurant is “lighter on tandooris and khurmas and heavier on kebabs and robust curries,” according to the company’s website.

“They have been very successful downtown,” said Sam Zagoren of Square Foot Realty, who represented the tenant. “There’s always a line waiting out the door, so they decided they wanted to take a larger space and penetrate the Upper East Side.”

Alexander Hill of Winick Realty represented landlord Anthony Castelbuono.

Winick Setting Trends in Hudson Yards

505 West 37th StreetWinick Realty Group LLC has completed leasing the retail space at 505 West 37th Street, the sprawling mixed-use complex between 10th and 11th Avenues on 37th to 38th Streets in the Hudson Yards area.

Winick Realty Group LLC president Steven E. Baker and associate director Josh Singer represented landlord TF Cornerstone in two long-term lease transactions totaling approximately 20,000 s/f.

Ark Restaurants leased 10,350 s/f for an as-yet-unnamed restaurant concept. The eatery will occupy a ground-floor space stretching across 10th Avenue for what Ark describes as an “upscale, modern” dining experience.

The building will also be home to Pillars 37 and Pillars 38, a new private event venue and catering hall from the owners of nearby Loft Eleven. The 9,570 s/f space is on both 37th and 38th Streets and also includes a terrace.

“We are proud to have leased 20,000 s/f of retail at 505 West 37th Street on behalf of TF Cornerstone,” said Baker. “These tenants will help change Hudson Yards into the next cool, hip neighborhood. We aim to continue that trend with the two remaining spaces at 505’s sister building, 455 West 37th Street, or ensure that incoming tenants provide essential services to the community.”

Baker and Singer are still marketing two retail spaces at 455 West 37th Street, including 2,200 s/f on 10th Avenue and 5,905 s/f for another restaurant concept on 37th Street.

Tenants will join Duane Reade and a gourmet market, which have already moved into the complex.

Newmark Knight Frank represented the catering hall, while Ark Restaurants was represented by KGW Associates.
