Dylan’s Candy Bar is heading to Union Square with a new confectionery.
Yesterday, the sweetery signed a 10-year lease for the 3,300-square-foot ground-floor space formerly occupied by Puma at 33 Union Square West between 16th and 17th Streets, according to City Connections Realty.
The asking rent was $545 per square foot, or $150,000 per month, the firm said.
City Connections’ Steve Asch and Cara Rosenbloom represented the landlord, United American Land, in the deal. Peter Whitenack of RKF represented Dylan’s.
The 11-story, 49,000-square-foot building was home to Andy Warhol‘s factory on the sixth floor from 1967 to 1973, Mr. Rosenbloom said.
Dylan’s will open the in the new space, its sixth free-standing shop, next spring, as the New York Daily News first reported.
