Café & Bar Leases Ground-Floor Space for Second River North Location

Edie’s All Day Café & Bar completed a lease for approximately 4,000 square feet of ground-floor restaurant space at Kingsbury Center, 354 W. Hubbard, owned by an affiliate of Next Realty, LLC and The Habitat Company. 

Scheduled to open in Spring 2022, the new Edie’s location is its second in Chicago’s River North. Edie’s other café is located in the Wells Avenue Corridor. 

“We’re very excited to welcome Edie’s, and the exciting new concept it offers, to Kingsbury Center,” said Amy Levin, Director of Leasing, Next Realty and Matt Martin, Asset Manager, The Habitat Company. “Ground-floor retail space in a dense urban environment like River North offers tremendous opportunity for building owners, retailers and dense day time and nighttime populations that need and desire convenience and services.” 

Edie’s was represented by David Goldberg and Allen Perales, Founder and COO, respectively, at Goldstreet Partners.
