The owners of Fifi projects, a photography and video gallery in Miami, are opening a gallery by the same name in Manhattan. Coldwell Banker Commercial’s James Famularo and Lauren Schlesinger negotiated the five-year lease for the 350-square-foot space at 29 Essex Street on Monday. The Lower East Side gallery, which will be modeled after the space in Miami, will open after about two weeks of renovations, Famularo, a senior executive managing director, said. The owners asked that their rent not be disclosed, Famularo said, noting that neighborhood rents range from $65 to $75 a foot. TRD
