After sitting vacant for two years in the heart of the Flatiron District, the new ownership group of 41 West 24th Street has elected to gut-renovate the building’s retail space in order to capitalize on the neighborhood’s growing popularity with office users and residents.
Previously occupied by a deli, the 2,300-square-foot space sits between Fifth and Sixth Avenues and enjoys close proximity to both Eataly and one of the area’s hottest residential developments, 10 Madison Square. Envisioned as the new home for a local or regional purveyor, the retail space at 41 West 24th Street is being marketed by Cushman & Wakefield to a number of potential tenants, including coffee shops.
“We’d love to do coffee, but we have got total flexibility” Steven Soutendijk told The Commercial Observer. Mr. Soutendijk, who is marketing the space alongside Stephanie Katona and Jesse Hutcher, discussed the gut renovation of the disused space.
