Massey Knakal Secures New Lease For Prospect-Lefferts Gardens Space
Massey Knakal Retail Leasing Services has secured a new long-term lease for a space at 717 Flatbush Avenue, located between Clarkson and Parkside Avenues in Brooklyn’s Prospect-Lefferts Gardens neighborhood.
The column-free space contains approximately 1,800 square feet on the ground floor plus additional basement space. It features approximately ten foot high ceilings and 20 feet of frontage located at an intersection with a stop light. The site will be occupied by Baby City Food, Inc., a children’s store.
This site presented a rare opportunity in an area with low vacancy and a mix of national, regional, and local retailers. Neighboring tenants include Duane Reade, Popeye’s, Dunkin Donuts, T-Mobile, Subway, and Sneaker King.
“This space is located on an emerging retail corridor which has begun to see increased commercial rents as a result of the significant pedestrian and vehicular traffic and close proximity to public transportation and to Prospect Park. Numerous national and local retailers have recently opened locations in the area,” said Gregory Bartlett, who exclusively represented the landlord in this transaction with David Chkheidze.
