    National retailers and restaurateurs have been scrupulously scouting for real estate locations near and along Flatbush and Atlantic avenues in advance of the Barclays Center opening this year.

    The Wall Street Journal reported that the most recent victim of the growing trend is Triangle Sports, the 96-year-old retailer at the intersection of Flatbush and Fifth avenues. With the weak economy and increased pressure from the national retailers and upscale boutiques that have descended upon the area, Triangle Sports owners felt it would be best to sell their property.

    Parisian hotelier and restaurateur Cyril Aouizerate plans to open a restaurant, Maimonide of Brooklyn (or M.O.B.), in a 1,900-square-foot space he just leased in Downtown Brooklyn, according to CPEX, which represented Aouizerate in the transaction. Aouizerate, who founded France’s Mama Shelter hotel chain, signed on for 10 years at 525 Atlantic Avenue, with a starting rent of $50 per square foot, in a deal brokered by CPEX’s Ryan Condren and Eric Altschul. The property was sold, as recently as June 2 according to public records, to New Atlantic Gardens for $10 million. G.F.I. retail represented the owner in the Maimonide of Brooklyn transaction. “Eric and Ryan spent a great deal of time bringing all the parties together and they demonstrated great tenacity during the many months of negotiation.” said Timothy King, Managing Partner of CPEX Real Estate.

    Ryan Condren and Zazza Residential

    Zipcar has signed a lease to take 2,000 square feet of space in the 50-space parking garage attached to the Zazza Residential condo-turned-rental building in Williamsburg. CPEX Real Estate Service, acting on behalf of the Zazza Group that developed the building, reached out to Zipcar to lease the space. The firm would not disclose the terms of the deal, and wasn’t certain how many cars Zipcar could, or would, keep in the garage. Ryan Condren, the managing director who brokered the lease, said Zipcar was interested in the space at 424 Bedford Avenue because it is an ideal location for their business. “It’s central to Williamsburg’s densest residential areas and is easily accessible from the train,” he said.

    Discount clothing department store Marshalls and drugstore CVS are interested in leasing space in a troubled development site in Williamsburg, once the stalled construction project is completed, several brokers said. The national chain retailers are looking at a lower-level space at 242 Bedford Avenue, just south of North 4th Street, the brokers, who asked to remain anonymous, said. The half-built site is owned by Yehuda Backer’s Williamsburg-based Backer Group, which halted construction several years ago. Instead, the parcel has only steel shells with no current construction evident.

    A new report on New York City’s traditionally tight-lipped retail leasing market lifts the curtain on pricing in more than 193 shopping districts in the five boroughs (see the full report after the jump). The survey, the first undertaken by the two-year-old Brooklyn sales and leasing firm CPEX Real Estate, gives ranges for rents based on a review of more than 1,200 leases as well as interviews with owners, appraisers and other industry sources, company principal Timothy King said. The overview is a rare glimpse into the retail leasing industry that remains far more secretive than residential and office leasing, brokers said. While brokerage firms release retail reports, for example commercial real estate firm CB Richard Ellis released a sophisticated fourth-quarter retail analysis of 10 shopping districts in Manhattan south of 86th Street this week, they do not cover all five boroughs. King said there were few surprises in the CPEX data. He said its value was as a tool for clients looking for a broad view of the market. “If a retailer comes from out of town, this is a road map to give you a logical starting point,” King said. … [more]
