SL Green Realty Corp. and The Moinian Group have appointed the Winick Realty Group team of CEO Jeff Winick and directors Kelly Gedinsky and Michael Gleicher to exclusively market the former Daffy’s location at 3 Columbus Circle.
The multi-level retail site is situated in the center of the 57th Street corridor, in close proximity to the new Nordstrom location that is set to open in 2018.
“This is an amazing opportunity for a retailer to occupy the last big-box space next to Nordstrom,” said Gedinsky.
Winick, Gedinsky and Gleicher are currently investigating all possible configurations for the space, which includes 5,279 s/f on the ground floor and 18,883 s/f in the lower level.
The potential addition of second-floor retail will add 14,205 s/f and more than 100 feet of window signage that will face one of Nordstrom’s entrances, which will be on Broadway between 57th and 58th Street
The 50 feet of frontage on 57th Street will allow the incoming tenant to capture customers from the new One 57th Street residential tower, as well as Carnegie Hall and the Hearst Tower.
Positioned near Columbus Circle, Central Park and the Time Warner Center, the 26,000 – 40,000 s/f of retail at 3 Columbus Circle sits in the middle of an attraction visited by the 51 million people every year.
The store is also serviced by the 59th Street-Columbus Circle subway station that attracted 21,599,586 riders in 2012, making it the seventh busiest subway station in all of Manhattan.
