Winick Realty Group president Steven E. Baker and director Charles Rapuano announced the completion of their retail leasing efforts at 2062 Broadway and the subsequent launch of efforts to lease nearby Upper West Side availabilities at 2060 Broadway and 2322 Broadway.
Café Metro, the fast-casual dining chain with five locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn, signed a lease for 2,150 s/f, including 1,150 s/f on the ground floor and 1,000 s/f in the basement.
The location will feature Café Metro’s sleeker store design, which was first launched in their store at 162 West 56th Street.
Baker and Rapuano also represented Café Metro in the long-term lease transaction and the store is expected to open in Summer 2019.
The pair also represented landlord The Brodsky Organization, as they have in many retail leases in the building over the years, including a Just Salad location two years ago.
“We know the building and the area very well,” said Baker. “We knew that ownership was looking for a high-quality, long-term tenant and we felt that Café Metro would be a great complement to the co-tenants in the building.”
Baker and Rapuano are bringing to market the space next door to the incoming Café Metro.
The 1,482 s/f space is comprised of an 857 s/f ground floor with 15-foot ceilings and 35 feet of Broadway frontage; 348 s/fin the basement and 277 s/f in the mezzanine.
The space is available immediately and ownership is seeking amenity uses for the space, including salons, cosmetics and apparel.
Further uptown, Baker and Rapuano are marketing the retail at 2322 Broadway on behalf of Bi-Costal Properties.
