The retail space that is currently home to a Chase branch at 130 Second Ave. is on the market, available starting in January, according to a listing at Icon Realty.
Here are a few details from the listing:
130 2nd ave resides on St. Mark Place [sic] which is defined by a perpetual eclecticism born from an ever-evolving New York City and its mixing of the pop- and counter-culture movements. Dominated by pedestrians and boasting a lively, approachable and socialable sensibility.
-Prime East Village Corner Commercial Space on Second Avenue and St. Marks Place Accepting Offers for: General Retail Use, Restaurants/Bar, Office Space, Gyms/Fitness Centers
-New elevators will be installed and space will be delivered as a white box with a new all glass store front
And the asking rent? "$875,000 Per Annum." (Good for a mere $72,000 a month.)
Perhaps Chase figures they can do without this location… especially since there's another Chase branch two blocks to the north at East 10th Street.
And it appears that Chase is downsizing. There's a for rent sign above the Chase branch on Avenue A and East Second Street, as we noted last month.
This space is also available starting in January, according to the listing.
