The leases were sourced and negotiated in-house by RFR Vice President and Director of Retail Leasing Jordan Claffey.
Fields Good Chicken, an upmarket counter serve featuring healthy, local, antibiotic-free grilled and roasted chicken in creative salads, sandwiches and bowls, signed a new lease for 4,066 square feet of space at 275 Madison Avenue.
Fields Good Chicken was represented by Benjamin Birnbaum, Marc Frankel, and
Jeffrey Roseman from Newmark Grubb Knight Frank.
This will be its second signed lease in Manhattan in addition to its Financial District location at 101 Maiden Lane, and Fields Good Chicken has additional expansion plans.
On the ground floor of 90 Fifth Avenue, L.A. lifestyle-inspired women’s clothing retailer Brandy Melville signed a lease for 1,600 square feet of space. Alan Napack from Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant in the 32-month lease.
This will be Brandy Melville’s fourth New York City signed lease, in addition to its locations on Broadway in Soho, Prince Street in Nolita and UES.
Claffey said, “We’re pleased to partner with Fields Good Chicken and Brandy Melville in two of RFR’s iconic properties. Fields Good Chicken is a unique and distinguished concept in the QSR category with an exceptional leadership team.
Brandy Melville is an international brand with a loyal teen following, and this lease further establishes Fifth Avenue south of 16th Street as a destination for fashion tenants.”
