NYCR Signs I Love NY Gifts to Times Sq. Flagship

American Realty Capital New York City REIT has arranged a new 15-year lease with I Love NY Gifts for the remaining 9,000 square feet of retail space at 200 W. 41st St., also known as 9 Times Square. I Love NY Gifts expects to open its flagship location there in late spring 2019.

“We believe that the curb appeal, demonstrated year-round retail foot traffic, prime Times Square location and our recently completed repositioning made 9 Times Square a natural choice for I Love New York Gifts’ new flagship location,” said NYCR SVP Zachary Pomerantz. He noted that the office and retail property is now approximately 85% leased.

RKF’s Jordyn Comras, TJ Cholnoky, Jackie Totolo and Ariel Schuster represented both NYCR and I Love NY Gifts in the transaction. Totolo called 9 Times Square’s retail space “a truly incredible showcase” for the tenant, with its 125 feet of wraparound footage.
