Urbanspace, the trendy food hall from the people behind outdoor markets like the Union Square holiday shops and Mad. Sq. Eats, is opening its second permanent location at the Feil Organization’s 570 Lexington Avenue.

The company signed a lease for 11,400 square feet in the space that was long home to the hot-ticket Chinese eatery Mr. K’s, the New York Post reported.

It will be Urbanspace’s second location in Midtown East after the Urbanspace Vanderbilt, which Travel + Leisure named one of the “world’s best new food halls.”

Counter service at the 230 Park Avenue location includes fare from restaurants like Roberta’s, Red Hook Lobster Pound and Delaney Chicken.

Urbanspace CEO Eldon Scott, who did not announce an opening date, said the Lexington Avenue location will be similar to the Vanderbilt one, with “a different mix of users but a similar concept.”

CBRE’s Amira Yunis, who represented Urbanspace along with colleague Anthony Stanford, praised 570 Lexington’s “dazzling Art Deco building right on top of a subway stop.”
