'Most uses considered' for 3 retail spaces at Kushner's 170 E. 2nd St.

The retail spaces are now on the market over at 170-174 E. Second St., where landlord Jared Kushner has reportedly been using aggressive tactics to rid the buildings of rent-stabilized tenants.

Here's more info about the spaces between Avenue A and Avenue B via the RKF listing:

Ground Floor
Space A — 250 SF
Space B — 500 SF
Space C — 500 SF

Formerly multiple tenants

Black Iron Burger Shop, Duane Reade, Il Bagatto, Jane’s Exchange, Snack Dragon, Supper, Two Boots, Waffles and Dinges [sic]

Most uses considered
Natural light throughout
Situated in one of New York City’s fastest growing neighborhoods
Potential basement space
In close proximity to the F subway lines

There isn't any mention of the asking rent, just "negotiable."

And this is a curious selection of neighbors. Black Iron is three blocks away on East Fifth Street and Snack Dragon is closing this week. And Il Bagatto is now delivery only.

Two East 2nd St. buildings sell for $17.5 million; will new owner still honor Allen Ginsburg?

Tenants claim: Kushner and Westminster want to destroy this building's beautiful garden

Reports outline how Kushner Companies is aggressively trying to empty 170-174 E. 2nd St.

Shows how connected they are to the area - Bagatto has been closed for almost a year

What does fastest growing neighborhood mean? It's pretty full here already.
