Now that residents have been moving into the condoplex along Avenue A between 11th Street and 12th Street, perhaps there will be some activity with the ample retail space here.
Several for rent signs appeared on the front windows at Steiner East Village this past week...
The listing at RIPCO appears to be the same one we spotted from 2014. There's not much info, such as the asking rent. The spaces are divisible. Maybe this whole space will attract one big retailer, such as a Trader Joe's, or it will be chopped up into four storefronts. The total space available is 11,611 feet square feet.
The listing also notes some curious neighbors to Steiner East Village ... several of which are no longer in business:
Momofuku Noodle Bar, Westville East, La Luche, Stuyvesant Town/Peter Cooper, El Camion Cantina, Rite Aid, Bcup Cafe, BAR-BO-NE
La Lucha closed in 2015 ... BAR-BO-NE (or Barbone) closed in 2016... and the Rite Aid on 14th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B was demolished four years ago. Unless they mean the one on First Avenue at Fifth Street.
