The for rent sign is up now at the former Organic Avenue space on Third Avenue at East Ninth Street.
According to the listing (PDF!) at Walker Malloy, the asking monthly rent is $17,500 for the 1,020-square-foot space (no basement).
And what was Organic Avenue paying? A past-due notice on the door in late October showed the monthly rent to be $13,583.33.
As for OA, the entire juice-bar chain abruptly shut down on Oct. 15.
So the fact that this space is on the market shoots down any theories of the rumored-to-be-expanding Duane Reade on the East 10th Street corner taking over the entire west side of Third Avenue along here. Three storefronts remain empty next to that Duane Reade.
