Solow Building Company has appointed Paul Wexler at The Corcoran Group to market the two retail spaces at One United Nations Park, the new luxury residential development on First Avenue between 39th Street and 40th Street. Wexler will handle the leasing efforts for 9,000 s/f of retail space on the ground floor. The retail space is split into two entities, each with separate street-facing entrances.
“Midtown East is an iconic New York neighborhood and an ideal location for new retail opportunities,” said Sheldon Solow, CEO and founder of Solow Building Company. “We are proud to bring two new businesses to One United Nations Park to service not only our residents but also those who live and work in the area.”
Wexler’s team has handled thousands of high-profile commercial transactions in New York, involving the full gamut of hospitals and healthcare facilities in the city and representing billions of dollars in sales and aggregate leases. Wexler brings several decades of commercial real estate experience to One United Nations Park, the striking black glass tower that has redefined Manhattan’s East Side skyline.
Developed by the Solow Building Company, One United Nations Park has a corner space on 39th Street and 1st Avenue comprised of 3,000 s/f and a corner space on 40th Street and 1st Avenue comprised of 6,000 s/f.
The two retail spaces are earmarked for food and beverage purveyors to serve the needs of both the neighborhood and area residents. There is a potential outdoor dining component adjacent to the 39th Street space that overlooks the East River.
“This exciting retail opportunity will bring much-needed services to an area which is currently experiencing a tremendous influx of new residents, healthcare providers, and businesses,” said Wexler.
Located in the Midtown East neighborhood, just south of the United Nations Headquarters, One United Nations Park is close to the East River Ferry, heliport and Grand Central Station.
Rising 450 feet, One United Nations Park is a layered black glass form designed by Richard Meier & Partners Architects. The façade is completely transparent when viewed from inside the building.
Pricing for One United Nations Park’s one-to four-bedroom smart-home condominium residences begins at $1,425,000. Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group handles leasing for the homes.
