New vendors for MarketLine
Delancey Street Associates (DSA) announced the latest round of vendors joining the Market Line at Essex Crossing on the Lower East Side.
The newest vendors include Lower East Side Vietnamese staple Pho Grand, up and coming star Moon Man’s first brick and mortar location, and Mediterranean marketplace Rustic Table Shuk from the founders behind of Rustic Table in Hell’s Kitchen.
Opening later this year, The Market Line will gather a mix of more than 100 locally sourced food, art, music and fashion retailers. It will complement the new home for the 77-year-old Essex Street Market, whose current vendors will move into an adjacent state-of-the-art space later this year.
Upon completion, the 150,000 s/f Market Line will not only be the largest market in New York City, it will be one of the largest in the world.
Nigel Sielegar, co-founder of Moon Man, says “Moon Man was founded with two goals; to introduce Indonesian desserts to the United States and to preserve the legacy of this street food that is disappearing from Indonesia. The Market Line provides Moon Man with permanent base that fosters cultural diffusion and tolerance.”
● The Hudson Companies
Gourmet grocer to open in Dumbo
The Hudson Companies announced a lease with Wholesome Farms Market at J Condo, located at 108 Jay Street in Dumbo.
Wholesome Farms Market will take the corner retail space fronting York Street and Jay Street. This will be the third location in Brooklyn for the gourmet market, which will take 3,000 s/f under a 15-year lease.
“I’ve been really impressed with Wholesome Farms Market’s Flatbush store, which I visited frequently when we were developing the Parkline,” said David Kramer, president of The Hudson Companies. “We’re proud to welcome them to Dumbo and I think they’ll do great at the base of J Condo, especially given the great location across from the York Street F Station.”
The lease was brokered by James Monteleone of All Points Real Estate.
J Condo, completed in 2007, is a 33 story mixed-use development that sits in the heart of Dumbo.
Wholesome Farms Market will join an array of retail tenants in the building, including City Chemist, York Street Cellars and Chase Bank.
