Manhattan, NY Westside Market, a family-owned and operated specialty food retailer, has signed a 20-year lease to establish its second Chelsea location at Jack Resnick & Sons’ retail condominium located at 170 West 23rd St.
The new 8,000 s/f store, which will offer gourmet supermarket offerings and essential grocery items, will be located at the base of the Chelsea Seventh condos between Sixth and Seventh Aves. It will open in spring 2018.
“We are pleased to welcome Westside Market to our retail mix at Seventh and 23rd, an ideal location for the neighborhood’s residents and office workers,” said Jonathan Resnick, president at Jack Resnick & Sons. “With the store’s high visibility, foot traffic and proximity to mass transit, we believe the Westside Market will be successful for years to come.”
Situated near the 23rd St. “1” train subway stop, 170 West 23rd St. was built by Jack Resnick & Sons in 1975, and is home to retail tenants Janovic Paint & Decorating, Spa Belles, Dominos Pizza, Subway, OMG Jeans, HHK Sushi & Tea and Man Made Barber. According to Jack Resnick & Sons’ managing director Fran Delgorio, only two retail units remain available for lease at the property.
Established in 1965 by John Zoitas, Westside Market has longtime roots in the local community. After emigrating from Greece to New York City more than 50 years ago, the Zoitas family built a business that brought their passion for fresh-grown produce, authentic cooking and commitment to health/wellness to Manhattan residents.
Westside Market was represented in the transaction by Craig Slosberg, formerly of Jones Lang LaSalle (now with Newmark Knight Frank). Building ownership was represented in-house by Delgorio as well as Brett Greenberg.
