An upscale Lower East Side building that struggled since inception to fill the ground floor commercial has finally come through.
The Karl Fischer-designed luxury residence at 196 Stanton Street – constructed across from low-income housing five years ago – hasn’t had the best luck scoring retail tenants. Located on the eastern terminus, between Attorney and Ridge, it’s definitely off the beaten path. That also explains the constant supply of vacancies in the building.
Said commercial woes will soon flip. According to a dispatch in the Commercial Observer, celebrity chef David Chang is launching a new location to service his food delivery app, Maple. Chang just inked a ten-year deal to occupy 4,200 square-feet on the main floor. The new facility will operate as a Lower East Side-based kitchen for the company, its fourth in the city. The plan is to operate ten ovens onsite.
Maple was founded in April 2015. Meals ordered through the mobile app are prepared and delivered to customers.
