Midtown South’s Creative Office Building Gets Critically-Acclaimed Modern Steakhouse
NEW YORK — Winter Properties (“Winter”) announced today that it has signed a lease with modern steakhouse concept Quality Eats to anchor the retail tenancy at 3 East 28th Street in NoMad. This will be the restaurant’s second location and will open in late 2017.
“We are thrilled to welcome Quality Eats to 3 E. 28th St,” said David Winter, Co-Chief Executive Officer of Winter Properties. “Quality’s modern take on the traditional steakhouse is exactly the type of inspired dining and gathering place that we are excited to provide to our prospective tenants,” he continued.
“Quality Eats has resonated with the downtown crowd and we are thrilled to expand to Nomad to make our inventive neighborhood dining available to more New Yorkers,” said Michael Stillman, president and founder of Quality Branded.
Located between Madison and Fifth Avenues, 3 East 28th Street is a 12-story mixed-use building that is currently undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation under the direction of premier architecture firm Morris Adjmi Architects.
With high ceilings, bright, open floorplates and a modern industrial feel, the office spaces will incorporate innovative design while preserving the building’s rich historical features. 3 East 28th Street is ideally situated in the heart of the NoMad district, home to busy crowds of office workers, Fifth and Madison Avenue shoppers, and tourists enjoying New York City’s bustling energy. In recent years, the area has become a hub for creative talent and a retail destination with nearly 24/7 foot traffic.
RKF Vice Chairman Ariel Schuster, Managing Director Jackie Totolo and Senior Associate Brandon Berger represented Winter Properties in the transaction. SCG Retail’s Taryn Brandes represented the tenant.
“Upscale tech, design and fashion companies have flocked to NoMad, and restaurants, luxury hotels, and the most current retail brands have quickly followed,” said Schuster. “Quality Eats will cater to the growing residential and tourist populations, the daily creative and technology office workers of Midtown South, as well as the new tenants that will occupy the creative office space above in the newly renovated building.”
