Commercial Space at 177 Chrystie Put Up for Rent

Posted on: June 3rd, 2011 at 6:18 am by

The trendy spillover effect from the Freeman’s environs on the Lower East Side is now rounding the corner onto Chrystie Street. While Mikco Building Material on the northwest corner seemingly has a stronger foothold, its neighbor across the street at 177 Chrystie isn’t so lucky. Indeed, the still-active warehouse just received a death sentence in no uncertain terms. Draped from their corner storefront is a large leasing banner courtesy of NYCRS, spelling imminent closure.

The listing is for a sizable Chrystie Street footprint – 5,000 square-feet of space divided evenly between the ground level and basement. Asking monthly rent is currently $12,750. If the brokerbabble is to be believed, this parcel of the neighborhood is an “Upcoming Area Exploding With Life And Upscale Neighbors Including Art Galleries, Restaurants, Cafe’s, Bars, High End Fashion Boutiques, And Museums.”
