Lee NYC Brings “Urban Dog Retreat” to Lenox Hill

Lee & Associates NYC has arranged a 10.5-year lease for Buddy’s Dog Den in former AKC Canine Retreat space at 1105 First Ave., between East 60th and East 61st streets, in the Upper East Side’s Lenox Hill area. The new facility spans 3,950 square feet.
The Manhattan outpost will represent the second location for Buddy’s Dog Den, which the company calls “Brooklyn’s Urban Dog Retreat.” Founded by Lynne-Marie Paquette, the company is in its eighth year of business at 429 Graham Ave. in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. 
“What makes this deal particularly sweet,” said Lee NYC’s Richard Kave, “is that Lynne-Marie expects to be able to rehire two or three former employees who she had to furlough at the Brooklyn location due to COVID-19 and a downturn in her business.”

Kave represented the tenant while Winick Realty Group’s Hal Shapiro represented the landlord, an entity controlled by real estate developer Elie Hirschfeld.
