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.

Roosevelt Island Gambles on a Brighter Future

RI-1Hal Shapiro, managing director of Winick Realty Group, which does retail leasing, said the problem is that many people don’t really know the island. He needs to explain things about it, such as its beautiful scenery with open space and parks, its population and economic increase and in the past years with finished new residential buildings, and its potential growth since Cornell is coming. And most importantly, he pointed out, that the island is underserved. He said, now he is talking with three potential tenants—a Thai restaurant, a daycare center, and a bank, asking for 50 dollars per square feet.

“Things are happening,” said Shapiro. Saks-Rosenberg agrees. Five years ago the Main Street Retail Study said that Roosevelt Island residents do just 12% of their shopping on the Island, she said, “and now people start to really shop on the island and go to the stores, which was not the case two years ago. ”

Winick Realty Group Leases First Manhattan Location for Explore & Discover 

hal-shapiro-258x300Early childhood learning center Explore & Discover signed a lease for its first New York City location at 444 Second Avenue. The 6,416-square-foot space is located on the Southeast corner of Second Avenue and 26th Street in the Kips Bay neighborhood.

Winick Realty Group broker Hal Shapiro, who serves as the exclusive broker for Explore & Discover in Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx, represented the well-regarded educational concept in the lease transaction. Landlord Henry Phipps Plaza was represented in-house by Charles Gross.

“This location had been on the market for a long time and it proved to be a perfect fit for Explore & Discover,” said Shapiro. “Everything from the layout of the store to the proximity to local schools and young neighborhood families works especially well for their brand.”

As with all of their locations, Explore & Discover “plan to be an integral part of each neighborhood we serve: a model for infant + child education and a community for parents and teachers, where each child can experience the world in wondrous ways.”

Shapiro is continuing to seek 4,000- to 6,000-square-foot sites for the 30-year-old company, which has created programs in 55 locations throughout the state of New York, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. Potential sites should be submitted to hal@winick.com.

Private Learning Center Signs Lease at Affordable Housing Complex

444-2nd-avenueA private early learning center signed a 15-year lease in a renovated 6,416-square-foot retail space on the ground floor of an affordable housing complex at 444 Second Avenue in Kips Bay, Winick Realty Group announced today.

Explore & Discover will open an eight-classroom, 80-student school for children aged 3 months to 2 years this September following a $20 million renovation last year by Henry Phipps Plaza, an owner, developer and manager of affordable housing that owns the 33-story, 247-unit building.

“This location had been on the market for a long time and it proved to be a perfect fit for Explore & Discover,” said Hal Shapiro, a Winick broker who represented the school in the deal for its first city location, in a prepared statement. “Everything from the layout of the store to the proximity to local schools and young neighborhood families works especially well for their brand.”

Mr. Shapiro said the asking rent was originally $100 per square foot, but he and Charles Gross, the in-house broker who represented Henry Phipps Plaza, said the final rent agreement was more in line with the $80 per square foot the nonprofit listed for the property.

The private school, whose website says it charges $2,791 per month for each fulltime student, has plans to expand to up to 26 locations in New York City. Officials at Winick and Phipps Plaza didn’t know whether the affordable housing tenants would receive any discounts or subsidies to send their children to the school and a spokesman for Explore & Discover didn’t return phone and email requests for an interview.

DNAinfo first reported the new school in April, but the school signed the lease for the space in mid-May, Mr. Shapiro said.
