20 Peacocks Space on Clinton Street Now Not for Lease [Updated]

On the first anniversary of his tragically gruesome death, Mehdi Kabbaj’s upscale Lower East Side retail venture at 20 Clinton Street is seemingly on the ropes. Judging by this week-old real estate listing, 20 Peacocks is operating on a month-to-month lease while the landlord shops around the 579 square-foot storefront space. The current ask is $6,500 in monthly rent.

UPDATE 2/27/13: Owner Adriane Birt confirms that this listing was false, and that he owns this retail condo. The store is not going anywhere.

Gotta love it when real estate agents lie in the listings, though. This broker somehow believes that the “desirable” Clinton Street has “no current vacant retail available.” Umm, seriously? Take a walk down the road for heaven’s sake…

It was January 11, 2012 when Kabbaj hailed a cab uptown after a night of drinking on Avenue B. Bumper-to-bumper traffic near 96th Street on the FDR drove him to leap from the cab announced. A Toyota Sienna minivan struck and killed him.

Delancey Corner Stands Firm as Restaurant Supply Depot

It’s been a three-year retail drought for 18 Delancey Street.

It’s more of the same for 18 Delancey. Earlier this year, we began noticing […]
