A cart-load of ingenious retail deals are being considered for New York’s Retail Deal of the Year.
Deliberations are underway for The Real Estate Board of New York’s (REBNY) annual contest to recognize the city’s top retail brokers.
The two awards, The Most Creative Deal in Manhattan and The Retail Deal Which Most Significantly Benefits the Manhattan Retail Market, honor the most inventive and noteworthy New York City retail deals of the past year.
The winners will be announced at the Retail Committee’s annual cocktail party on June 11, 2013 at the 101 Club.
“It takes a lot of creativity, ingenuity and skill to coordinate and execute retail deals of the caliber that we receive,” said Steven Spinola, REBNY President.
“The New York City marketplace is one of the most competitive and complicated to navigate, so it goes without saying that the nominees are some of the most tenacious brokers at their respective firms. Congratulations to all of our nominees and we look forward to celebrating with the winners at the Retail Deal of the Year Awards this June.”
