Neuman’s Kitchen officially departs the Lower East Side this week, divesting from two Chrystie Street storefronts. The branded trucks have been pretty busy of late, presumably shuttling goods between locations. As previously reported, the longtime catering company decamped to Long Island City where a fancy new facility awaits. An upgrade that reportedly affords the business some 18,000 square-feet.

Here’s a first look at the new, much larger space.

Real estate speculation is at least partly to blame for the move. “Rents were getting too high but that wasn’t the precipitating factor [for relocating],” founding owner Paul Neuman told us last month. “We have also outgrown the space, and need to move.”

The OG “commissary” building at 173 Chrystie, housing the kitchen and tasting room, is under development. Acmos on Chrystie LLC purchased the property in September 2014 with the intention of developing a new ten-story luxury condo tower. The residential replacement will sport total floor area of 25,265 square-feet spread across 13 units (and private roof deck).

Meanwhile, landlord Ariel Soudry put the Neuman’s annex at 203 Chrystie on the market. It’s pitched as a “prime” opportunity given proximity to the Ian Schrager’s Public hotel rising across the street. Indeed, the 1,600 square-foot space is going for $15,000, with a 5-10 year lease sought.
