An 'especially dramatic' retail opportunity for Fourth Avenue



Last month, plans emerged about developing the long empty space on East 10th Street and Fourth Avenue. The Massey Knakal listing notes that "plans exist for a nine story mixed-use building with 8 floor through apartments and a bi-level retail space with double height ceilings."

And now the retail portion of the potential development is on the books. Per the Massey Knakal listing:

This prominient corner retail space will be located on the southeast corner of Fourth Avenue and East 10th Street. Currently, the site is under construction, and the anticipated possession date will be one and a half to two years from now. The site also provides an exceptional opportunity, which could accommodate a variety of uses. The space will house over 2,600 square feet of column-free space on the ground floor and over 3,500 square feet on the lower level. The lower level will also feature partial double-height ceilings, making the space especially dramatic.


No word on the asking rent for the retail space. But! The price for the lot is $24 million.

but they won't be destroying any affordable housing in this project - no way this will be approved

Another piece of hideous crap that our eyes will shrink from every time we go past it.

Way too much space for fro-yo in a hoof.

Perhaps. But if biscuits are added to the menu who could fathom the possibilities!?????

I remember when that block and corner were full of funky little lowrise buildings...Biblo & Tannen, best bookshop EVER, Pageant on the 9th Street corner, nice little bodega on the 10th Street corner, other places I can't recall. But INTERESTING places, not this glitzed up vomitry.

Yep, Hippie Chick... agree! The other day there was a young guy who was wandering on Third Avenue with his iPhone as "GPS"... I didn't ask but ... do you think he was looking for luxury?!

So this corner will look exactly like the corner of 2nd Ave & 1st St, Bowery & 1st St, Bowery & Chrystie, 3rd Ave & 14th St, Broadway & 14th St, sigh...
