Pizza oozes into Midtown, cyclists head to Moinian building and steak gets less rare in Union Square

Another one is coming to Midtown.

Pizza melts into Midtown
Midtown is set to get a new pizza joint, with Famous Amadeus Pizza signing a 15-year lease for a retail spot at 840 Eighth Avenue on the corner of 51st Street. The tenant, which was represented by Newmark Knight Frank’s retail division, nabbed 1,100 square feet of space. Newmark also represented the landlord in the transaction. The space was rented for $200 per square foot.

Moinian nabs cycling tenant
The Moinian Group’s 12 East 18th Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway is set to become a cyclist’s haven. SoulCycle, an indoor cycling and spinning chain, is set to move into 3,000 square feet of space at the retail building. The two-floor location will be the chain’s fourth in Manhattan, according to the Moinian Group, which represented itself in-house, along with Winick Realty Group. No word yet on when the cyclers plan to move in.

Union Square to get a little sizzle
A steakhouse is headed to Union Square at 90 East 10th Street on the corner of Fifth Avenue. Prime & Beyond is renting the space for $150 per square foot. The tenant will take up 1,200 square feet of space, according to Newmark Knight Frank, which brokered the deal. TRD
