NEW YORK — RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, has arranged a lease with Face Haus at Hanley New York at 1140 Third Avenue at 66th Street. The first-class skincare brand selected the luxury mixed-use residential building to be the location for its first Manhattan store.
Face Haus will occupy 1,520 square feet of space on the ground floor of the 20-story luxury residential building, known for bringing a downtown ambiance to the Upper East Side. Hanley New York has thoughtfully curated a mix of retail offerings that includes Italian eatery Sant Ambroeus, Oath Pizza and SWERVE Fitness (coming soon) that Face Haus will complement.
RKF Executive Vice President Joshua Strauss, Managing Director David Abrams and Associate Jordyn Comras represented the landlord, Crescent Heights, whose vision it was to create an extraordinary collection of services and amenities for building residents and their neighbors. Michael Kadosh of CBRE Group represented Face Haus.
Situated on Third Avenue between East 66th and East 67th Streets, Hanley New York is just three blocks from Central Park and steps away from the 4, 5, 6, F, N, Q, and R subway lines. The building offers retailers a distinct advantage in reaching pedestrian traffic both day and night. In addition to a large, prosperous residential population, nearby are offices of Fox Studios and Sotheby’s, along with luxury hotels catering to diplomats, business travelers and tourists, including The Pierre, The Carlyle, The Mark, The Surrey, and Gardens NYC. Neighbors include specialty fitness retailers Flywheel Sports, SLT 67, Fhitting Room, Nike Running Upper East Side, SoulCycle E63, Equinox, and lululemon. The bustling neighborhood is also home to Bloomingdale’s, Fig & Olive, J.G. Melon, Janie & Jack, Kiehl’s, Vineyard Vines, Bluemercury, and rag & bone.
“Hanley New York is an extraordinary opportunity for a specialty retailer to join an already innovative tenant collection, one that is leading the way for the retail evolution on this corridor on the Upper East Side,” explained Abrams. “Face Haus’ revolutionary beauty concept is a perfect fit and is sure to find great success with its first East Coast store.”
RKF is looking for athleisure, eyewear and fitness brands, as well as non-cooking food tenants to join the new dynamic mix. There are several small and mid-size spaces—from 750 to 4,100 square feet— available for lease, including two high-profile corner opportunities with wraparound window exposure and incredible visibility.
