Stonehenge Partners announced the signing of a 10-year lease with FIKA, the famed Swedish espresso and chocolate bar, for a 1,300 s/f space at its 555 Sixth Avenue retail property.
FIKA joins the ranks of the just-opened BFX Studio, a new high-end fitness boutique by Town Sports International, which occupies a 10,000 s/f space.
“We think of 555 Sixth as the miracle on Sixth Avenue and it’s living up to our expectations by attracting retailers like FIKA and BFX that enhance the lifestyle of the growing residential community here,” said Ofer Yardeni, co-chairman and CEO of Stonehenge Partners.
“Everybody starts the day with coffee and now our residents at 101 West 15th Street can wake up, work out, and have a cup of Sweden’s finest right outside their front door.”
Designed and built by Stonehenge as a companion to its adjacent high-end rental building at 101 West 15th Street, 555 Sixth Avenue is a newly constructed 19,000 s/f retail property that features an all glass, 200-foot long storefront that directly faces Sixth Avenue and spans from West 15th to West 16th streets.
Andrew Mandell, Richard Skulnik and Jason Maurer of Ripco Real Estate represented Stonehenge Partners in the deal and are marketing the remaining space at 555 Sixth Avenue, which is expected to attract flagship-quality retail at some of the highest prices per square foot in the area.
Remaining availability includes two corner spaces each offering approximately 3,000 s/f, one with frontage on West 15th Street and Sixth Avenue and the other with frontage on West 16th Street and Sixth Avenue.
