Peter Braus, managing principal, and JP Sutro, managing director of Lee & Associates NYC have been awarded the exclusive agency for the retail space at 149 Essex Street, between Rivington and Stanton Streets, a building owned by HUBB NYC.
The 1,500 s/f store is directly adjacent to the recently opened celebrity haunt, Tijuana Picnic, sister restaurant to downtown destinations Acme and Indochine.
149 Essex is also steps away from the 1.9 million square-foot mixed-use project, Essex Crossing, whose first phase is now under construction.
“This space is at the crossroads of a neighborhood undergoing an amazing transformation,” said Braus. “We think this is an ideal location for a tenant looking to take advantage of all the Lower East Side has to offer.”
Sutro said, “The landlord has taken a visionary approach to the property. Our goal is to bring the kind of retail to the space that will complete the revitalization of the entire block-front.”
