Kim's Laundromat & Cleaners on the southeast corner of Avenue A and East 13th Street got rent hiked out of business at the end of July.
To the surprise of absolutely no one, brokers are peddling the space for a bar/restaurant.
Here's the pitch via Loop Net:
Former laundromat in the east village. Great corner space on 13th and Avenue A with 50 feet of frontage. Easily vented for a restaurant or bar. total build-out needed. Rent concession will be given for build-out, and will vary on a tenant to tenant basis. 1300 sf
Great corner in the East Village. Surrounded by college students, young professionals, and bar-hoppers, this space is perfect for anyone with an exciting hip concept for a bar or restaurant.
The space is going for $135 per square foot.
Good luck to the potential tenant securing a liquor license in a saturated zone with a business that has never previously had a liquor license…
