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.

The city will screw the Lower East Side waterfront by allowing this 1,000-foot tower to proceed. Indeed, the Department of City Planning reversed course this week, and will now hear the case for this monstrosity.

St. Jerome’s on Rivington Street is Dead, for Real This Time

The gates are now shuttered for good, capping a decade (including a year-long hiatus) for the establishment. The closure follows two months […]

MTA Brushes off Vehement Local Opposition to ‘Gracias Mama’ Entrance on Rutgers Street

The MTA sees nothing wrong with having a restaurant entrance mere feet from a bustling subway station. Specifically that of Gracias Mama, whose principals (Koorosh Bakhtiar and Nima Garos) are trying to alter their method of operation, which could become a harbinger of overcrowding in a small area. The bold choice to move the front […]
