1164 Third Avenue
New York, New York
Initially, the structure at 1164 Third Avenue was a specialty boutique movie theatre adjacent to a major intersection with good subway access and foot traffic servicing three major hospitals. This was the very beginning of the “malling” of Third Avenue thus a main challenge was to find a “national/credit” tenant who could operate at two levels. IDA Associates arranged for the lease with Children’s Place and WQB Architecture provided a design featuring a two story atrium, ADA and stroller compliant mezzanine, and a basic floor layout that has been a major retail success.
