Massey Knakal Retained Exclusively To Lease Retail Townhouse In Meatpacking District
Massey Knakal Retail Leasing Services has been retained on an exclusive basis to secure a retail tenant for the entire retail townhouse at 5 Ninth Avenue, located between Gansevoort and Little West 12th Streets in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District
The space contains approximately 4,102 square feet and offers the entire 19 foot-wide, four-story façade as frontage on Gansevoort Plaza, which has as many as 3,000 pedestrians passing through per hour. Each floor has an open layout and there are soaring ceilings on the top floor. A rear courtyard is included and offers rare outdoor space without the need for a sidewalk permits. The previous tenant, the restaurant 5 Ninth, vacated in early 2013. The landlord will consider both restaurants and retailers as the new tenant.
This offering presents a tremendous branding opportunity in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Neighbors include The Gansevoort Hotel, The Standard Hotel, The Whitney Museum (coming in 2015), the High Line, Apple, Theory, Google, Sephora, and STK.
“This is an incredibly exciting assignment for us. With the Whitney Museum opening soon, the repositioning of the Pastis building, and Thor’s project on Washington Street, the Meatpacking District is truly primed to achieve new heights,” said Massey Knakal’s Brendan Gotch, who is exclusively marketing his space. “The tenant that leases 5 Ninth Avenue will be one of the primary beneficiaries of that trend,” he continued.
