A large gourmet food store and an urgent care facility will be opening on the ground floor of the newly-developed Gantry Park Landing complex, a 199-unit apartment building located at 2-14 50th Avenue.
The gourmet store, to be called Urban Market, will be leasing about 7,500 square feet and will offer fresh meat and seafood, pastries, prepared foods and other items, according to a press release issued by The Lightstone Group, the developer. The market is expected to open by the end of this year.
Meanwhile. an urgent medical care center– North Shore-LIJ– is expected to open early 2015. It will be about 4,300 square feet in size.
The building will contain three commercial tenants in total. An upscale coffee, tea and wine bar– called Beans, Grapes and Leaves– is expected to open this year, taking 1,100 square feet within the complex.
Residential apartments in the building are also now fully leased, according to the developer. The apartments went on the market in July, with rents starting at $1,875 for a studio, $2,450 for a one-bedroom and $3,250 for a two-bedroom.
“The draw for a more boutique community on the waterfront was quite evident,” said David Lichtenstein, Chairman and CEO of The Lightstone Group, in a statement. “We also designed it to include commercial space as an amenity to the building to help bring together this integrated lifestyle concept.”
