37 Kenmare Now for Rent

Posted on: August 26th, 2010 at 6:35 am by

Once upon a time, Yee Fay Inc. was the operative business inside the squat warehouse at 37 Kenmare Street. Not anymore, though.  Their signage was pried from the roofline, and replaced with twin leasing signs.  Indeed, the spot is now up for grabs.

The leasing signs have been in place for over a month, but the listings just started rolling in.  NYCRS appears to be the exclusive agent for the property, which they are touting as the perfect spot for a restaurant or retail establishment.  The former is likely, given the recent track record of newer Kenmare storefront occupants.  Asking rent is $20,000 per month for a total of 4,900 square-feet across the main level and basement.

As the Post belatedly proclaimed this week, Kenmare is one of the hottest nightlife destinations these days. Another gold rush.  Between Bowery and Lafayette, Kenmare, TravertineVillage Tart, and the soon-to-open Nolitan hotel all vie for supreme rule.  And with 37 on the open market, there are now two high-profile vacancies on this small piece of real estate, including the old East Boat Lobster which re-located from 72 Kenmare to Mott Street back in June.
