Winick Realty Group has just won two major new retail assignments.
The firm’s Melinda Miller is the exclusive broker for a 75,000 s/f multi-level Times Square space.
And in downtown Brooklyn, Jeff Winick is leading a team marketing what’s been dubbed a “game-changing” opportunity created by Red Apple Real Estate.
LH Charney has named Winick the exclusive brokers for the largest retail opportunity in Times Square at 1441 Broadway.
With 74,686 s/f of multi-level retail and new LED signage, the property “is truly a timeless retail gem that exudes both the glamour of New York and the glitz of Times Square,” said broker Melinda Miller who is working with Kelly Gedinsky and and Jeff Winick and the building ownership to fill the full block 41st Street space.
Charney is spurcing up the building with a new three-story glass façade and working to take full advantage of previously-untapped signage potential. They have retained signage consultants to design and construct new glamour signage which will span 12,270 s/f.
“Tenants will be able to couple the retail space with invaluable Times Square LED signage, creating an iconic retail play that encompasses not only the retail space but potentially branding the entire building,” said Miller.
The big box space offers 12,834 s/f on the ground floor, 17,233 s/f in the lower level, 16,619 s/f on the second floor, 11,396 s/f in the mezzanine, and 16,604 s/f on the third floor.
Over in Fort Greene, Jeff Winick, Diana D. Boutross and Robert Heicklen are marketing a 43,000 s/f retail complex.
Red Apple Real Estate has developed the retail site, bringing three luxury mixed-use buildings to a previously-unused stretch of Myrtle Avenue. A proposed new building at 86 Fleet Place will bring the total available retail to approximately 65,000 s/f.
“Downtown Brooklyn is an incredibly dynamic neighborhood and this development, which is on the last large block of land in the area, will only add more energy to the neighborhood as it ties together all of the recent growth Downtown Brooklyn has exhibited,” explained Boutross.
The recent construction boom has brought 5,000 new apartments and an additional 3,000,000 s/f of office space to a 25-block radius surrounding the buildings.
The 205-unit 81 Fleet Place has 11,676 s/f of available ground-floor retail space, while the 195-unit 180 Myrtle Avenue offers 10,041 s/f on the ground floor and 21,420 s/f on the lower level.
The nine-story, 95-unit Andrea, located next door at 218 Myrtle Avenue, currently houses Red Apple Supermarket and a CVS, and brings the total number of apartments in the complex to 495.
With opportunities ranging from 1,000 to 11,676 s/f, the retail availability at 81 Fleet Place and 180 Myrtle Avenue creates an opportunity for restaurants and lounges, fitness, cafés, medical and child care, and other much-needed retail categories to service the neighborhood.
“The placement of this development will help bridge the retail gap between the quality eateries and national tenants leasing space to the east on Myrtle Avenue, and the immense amount of students and workers on the other side of Flatbush Extension to the west,” said Heicklen, who noted the project’s proximity to City Hall, Metro Tech, and colleges, including NYU Poly and the Pratt Institute.
