Lee & Associates NYC’s Brooklyn retail sales and leasing team has been awarded the exclusive agency for the new Pod Hotel in Williamsburg.
Peter Braus, Peter Levitan, Garry Steinberg and JP Sutro are marketing the retail space at the under construction hotel.
Featuring more than 12,800 s/f of divisible grade level space, the retail will include 175 feet of frontage along North 4th Street and 25 feet on Driggs Avenue.
The 254-room, 71,000 s/f hotel is being developed by owners CB Developers, Waterbridge Capital and Ironstate Development, and is set to be operated by BD Hotels.
Designed by Garrison Architects, it is being built with cutting-edge modular construction systems and is anticipated for completion in 2016.
“Driggs Avenue is the next up and coming retail corridor in Williamsburg, and the Pod Hotel will make it an international destination,” said Braus. “The amount of flexible space that we are marketing, along with an incredible street presence and proximity to public transportation, makes this an ideal location for restaurants, fashion and so much more.”
In addition to the retail space at the soon-to-be built Pod Hotel, the team is currently marketing space at 132 Bedford Avenue, 247 Bedford Avenue, 365 Grand Street, 92 North 6th Street, 76 North 4th Street (with Jaime Schultz) and 44 Withers Street.
Among the recent leases the group has arranged in Williamsburg are Parm, Radegast, Sweetgreen and Umami. Overall, the Lee NYC has already closed 30 deals in Brooklyn, comprising 100,000 s/f within the past year, and currently holds 17 exclusive agencies in Williamsburg containing over 200,000 s/f.
