After learning that a Trader Joe's was coming to the new development at the former Peter Stuyvesant Post Office on 14th Street, Morton Williams has decided not to sign a lease for the nearby Associated, according to a report yesterday in Town & Village.
So for now, Associated will continue on here between Avenue A and First Avenue. The supermarket's lease is up at the end of the year.
Per Town & Village:
Asked about Morton Williams’ decision to withdraw from negotiations, Rick Hayduk, general manager of Stuyvesant Town, said no lease had been signed. Last week, he mentioned this as well, though he confirmed there were negotiations.
“Associated continues with their lease,” he added. “No final decision has been made with respect to the tenant for this space on a go-forward basis.”
