Colliers International has arranged a long-term lease for hybrid supermarket chain and delivery service provider MaxDelivery, which will occupy 9,800 s/f at 318 West 39th Street in the Garment District.
This will be the Manhattan retailer’s second location, complementing its first at 51 White Street in TriBeCa.
MaxDelivery provides one-hour delivery service for its wide range of more than 6,000 grocery, drugstore, and office items through an online ordering system on its website, and downloadable application.
The new MaxDelivery supermarket, featuring a food and beverage café, will be located on the ground floor of the 12-story office building, located between 8th and 9th Avenues. The space was previously occupied by a dress store.
“The arrival of this hybrid supermarket chain in the Garment District is a new model for retail in New York City as technology continues to transform the industry,” said Scott Edlitz, a senior managing director at Colliers International, who represented MaxDelivery in the transaction.
“Many retailers are moving towards online platforms to stay competitive, but shoppers still find value and a sense of credibility that comes with mom and pop, brick-and-mortar stores. With a combination of the two, MaxDelivery maintains the appeal of a local business, while also offering customers the convenience of online service and delivery.”
Edlitz added that retailers like MaxDelivery add value as an amenity to mixed-use buildings and are an ideal tenant for landlords looking to repurpose existing spaces in growing neighborhoods.
In addition to this new store, Edlitz is actively working with MaxDelivery to identify other retail locations throughout Manhattan.
Greg Gropper, of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank, represented the landlord, the Gural Family, in the transaction.
