MONEY & BUSINESS: Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse renews lease at 1221 Sixth Ave.
Talk about confidence in Sixth Avenue!
While some Midtown restaurateurs claim they’re struggling, Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse — a three-level, 25,000 square-foot jumbo at 1221 Sixth Ave. — just renewed its lease with long-time landlord Rockefeller Group for 20 more years.
JLL’s Patrick Smith, Corey Zolcinski and Matthew Schuss represented Del Frisco’s.
Rock Group was repped by CBRE’s Eric Gelber and Jordan Kaplan, along with an in-house team of Bill Edwards, Marisa Gadlin and Gisele de Chabert.
Anthropologie is returning to Soho after an eight-year absence.
The popular retailer of sportswear, jewelry and home furnishings just signed a lease for a roughly 7,000 square-foot flagship store at 420 West Broadway, where it will open in the spring.
Anthropologie was at 375 West Broadway until 2016 when Gucci took over the space. Its new landlord at 420 West Broadway, Centaur Properties, was repped by Sinvin principal Christopher Owles with Sarah Shannon. The tenant was repped by McDevitt Company’s Tim Duffy.
Owles said, “Anthropologie had been planning its return to Soho for many years but there are limited opportunities in the area for the large footprint they require. I’m pleased that 420 West Broadway was a good fit for them and could be made available at the right time.”
Terms were not disclosed. Retail asking rents on the block are in the $200s per square foot.
Things are off to a sweet start at the The Refinery on the Williamsburg waterfront.
The former Domino sugar plant, where developer Two Trees inserted a cutting-edge glass-wrapped office building inside the 19th Century brick facade, has already signed its first leases.
We’ve learned that three deals totaling 15,000 square feet have been inked for prebuilt units and more are likely soon. Only one of the first tenants is identified so far – digital startup firm Whop.
Two Trees is also said to be “trading paper” with several other prospective tenants.
The done deals are small relative to the building’s total 460,000 sf of office space, but the extraordinary project appears off to a strong start.
Two Trees chief Jed Walentas told us last year that the prebuilt units were already gaining traction and the signed deals appear to bear that out.
The developer is so heartened by the prebuilts’ popularity that it’s creating more of them.
As we also first reported, Two Trees teamed up with luxury fitness brand Equinox to launch a 42,000 square-foot gym and health club at the landmarked building.
