Kostas Koutsothanasis handled the transaction in-house for the landlord. Darren Leiderman of Colliers and Dimitris “Jimmy” Vattes of Velios Capital represented Northwell Health. Representatives from Colliers and Velios Capital did not immediately respond to requests for comment

“We are excited to have Northwell Health round out the retail at The Rowan,” Koutsothanasis said in a statement. “As a leading health care provider in New York City, Northwell Health’s new site will provide a convenient location for local residents to take advantage of.”

RockFramer also leased space in the project to local grocery chain Lincoln Market in January. Northwell’s transaction brings The Rowan’s retail space up to 100 percent leased. 

“This investment is just another example of how we are bringing top-notch services closer to people’s homes,” Northwell executive Kevin Beiner said in a statement. “We are excited to talk more about this facility when it opens later this year.”
