Cornell taps RKF to fill 200 Kent Avenue retail space in Williamsburg

RKF is exclusively marketing 39,000 s/f of retail and roof terrace space at the new mixed-use retail and office development currently under construction at 200 Kent Avenue, in Williamsburg.

RKF Vice Chairman Barry Fishbach and Director Eddie Mamiye are exclusively marketing the space on behalf of the developer, Cornell Realty.

The six-story block-through 200 Kent Avenue will be anchored by an upscale gourmet market. The available retail space includes 17,271 s/f of divisible space on the ground floor and 21,700 s/f of indoor and outdoor restaurant and/or entertainment space on the roof terrace with unobstructed waterfront views.

The space features 270 feet of wraparound frontage – 110 feet on Metropolitan Avenue and 160 feet on Kent Avenue.

Situated between Metropolitan and North Third Avenues, 200 Kent Avenue will also feature 25,000 s/f of office space in the heart of one of the strongest retail markets in Brooklyn, with neighbors that include Apple, Drybar, Equinox, SoulCycle, Whole Foods Market, and Lululemon Athletica.

The restaurant opportunities at 200 Kent Avenue will also benefit from the new and emerging developments on Kent Avenue along the Williamsburg waterfront, including the Austin Nichols House, The Edge, and Northside Piers, as well as the Domino Sugar Factory development a few blocks away.

In addition, The William Vale and Wyeth Hotel are two of the hotels in the market that are drawing domestic and international visitors to Williamsburg to shop and dine.

“Over the next decade, Williamsburg will welcome more than 8,000 new residents who undoubtedly will crave new shopping and dining experiences,” said Fishbach.

“200 Kent Avenue is a unique opportunity for a food-focused brand or entertainment/event operator to make its mark with a rare outdoor rooftop space, which will be a huge draw with the affluent residents, including young professionals, families and empty-nesters who live and play in this hip neighborhood.”
