3 retail spaces available at 51 Astor Place



The 24-hour public plaza opened last week outside 51 Astor Place... there are more developments to note as well, such as the retail space for the 400,000-square-foot office building.

According to the listing at RKF, there are three retail spaces available:

Space A
Ground Floor 9,217
Lower Level 8,145 SF
Total 17,362 SF

Space B
Ground Floor 3,397 SF

Space C
Ground Floor 2,946 SF

The floor plans give you of better idea of what will fit where...



Not much other information on the listing, aside from "Flagship opportunity" and "incredible exposure to a heavily foot-trafficked area."

The marketing materials also note that there are "35,000 residents under 35 in the immediate area" as well as "53,500 undergraduate and graduate students in the surrounding area."

So what kind of "flagship opportunities" will be realized here?

"There are a handful of residents over 35, but their needs are well-served by many local pharmacies, wheelchair repair shops, and bingo parlors."

"I'm Fumihiko Maki and I'm a famous architect, so I don't have to give a shit how badly I screw up the neighborhood for the next 100 years!"

"The area's over-35 residents are a stubborn bunch, but we expect most will relocate or die off within the next 6 to 12 months."

"Opportunities to serve the over-35 market include stores with nostalgia themes, like those selling "books", "records" (music recorded onto plastic music-recording things), or other dusty old stuff."

I'm pitching a lifestyle concept store called Forever 42 for old people (aka, The Olds).

Oh, damn, that's four, and there are only three spaces available. There's no way to pare this list down, so probably have to take over some other business. How about that bookstore across 3rd Ave? This neighborhood is trending up, and there's no holding it back!!
