Kaufman Organization Lands Two Tenants in Flatiron District

Kaufman Organization has secured two retail leases at 40 W. 25th St. and 56 W. 22nd St., totaling 12,671 square feet. These leases represent an uptick in retail leasing in the Flatiron neighborhood.  

The deals include the following  

  • Grandma’s Home, a full-service restaurant specializing in combining original and regional Chinese signature dishes, signed a 12-year, 6,000-square-foot lease at 56 W. 22nd. Michael A. Azarian of Cushman & Wakefield represented the tenant.  
  • Vintage apparel retailer Hearts of Gold signed a 10-year, 6,671-square-foot lease at 40 W. 25th. Shah Eatemadpour of Root Capital LLC represented the tenant.   

James Famularo and Evan Roteman of Meridian Retail Leasing represented Kaufman Organization in both transactions and acted as the retail agent.  

“We have been seeing an uptick in retail leasing across the Flatiron neighborhood,” said Grant Greenspan, principal at Kaufman Organization. “Many tenants are drawn to the area’s dynamic live-work-play environment.”
