NEW YORK CITY—The United States Post Office has leased a new 3,500-sq.-ft. location in the Financial District to replace the aging 1 Peck Slip Station, which is being redeveloped into a school. Currently under construction, the new full-service facility at 116 John Street is four blocks away from the old location and is set to open in the next few months.
Winick Realty Group LLC executive vice president Darrell Rubens and associate Annie Shinn brokered the deal to relocate the Post Office. Rubens and Shinn represented both the tenant and owners Metro Loft Management. Metro Loft Management, who recently purchased 116 John Street, was also the owner of 63 Wall Street.
This marks Winick Realty Group LLC’s tenth lease transaction on John Street, which consists of six blocks stretching from the new Fulton Street Transit Hub to the river. The company has leased storefronts to Crunch Fitness, Zen Palate, Lenny’s, Bon Chon Chicken, Subway, Basics Plus, Dollar N Discount and two Duane Reade locations.
Rubens and Shinn are currently marketing what will soon be Winick Realty Group LLC’s eleventh John Street store, a 1,900-sq.-ft. ground floor space at 116 John Street. Cornering John, Pearl and Platt Streets, the remaining retail space features more than 100 ft. of frontage on Pearl and Platt Streets.
