Two ground-floor retail spaces at Ascend Group’s new 84-unit condominium building in Tribeca have been leased, according to a release from Winick Realty Group, which brokered the deals.

Reade Street Prep, a preschool, signed a 3,600-square-foot lease at 75 Reade Street. On the other side of the building, Which Goes By The Address 95 Chambers Street, European Wax Center grabbed 1,650 square feet. 

Darrell Rubens and Lee Block, both of Winick Realty, represented the landlord as well as Reade Street Prep. Winick’s Hal Shapiro represented European Wax Center. Rubens and Block are handling marketing for the remaining retail, including a store with 2,000 square feet on the ground floor and 1,500 square foot on the lower level, the release said.

Plans were filed in 2006 to tear down an emporium at the site and replace it with a 63,000-square-foot condo building, as The Real Deal had reported.

Ascend Group previously developed a 99-unit Chelsea condominium building at 133 West 22nd Street, between Sixth and Seventh avenues, with Magnum Real Estate Group. — Mark Maurer
