Extell Signs Brooklyn Fare to 30-Year Lease at Lower East Side Tower

Brooklyn Fare Kitchen & Market has signed a 30-year retail lease at the base of Extell Development Company’s One Manhattan Square residential tower on the Lower East Side Waterfront. With four other outposts around New York City, Brooklyn Fare’s 25,500-square-foot new location at One Manhattan Square will be its largest. 

“The addition of Brooklyn Fare to the neighborhood signifies the continued transformation of the Lower East Side Waterfront into a dynamic neighborhood,” said Alan Oppenheimer, VP of development at Extell. “We are excited to bring one of New York’s most comprehensive grocery stores not just to our building but to the community.” 

The transaction was facilitated by Brad Schwarz from Lee & Associates representing Brooklyn Fare and Richard Skulnik and Lindsey Zegans of RIPCO represented Extell. The newest Brooklyn Fare is expected to be open by mid-2022.
