Manhattan Skyline Management Corp. has signed a long-term with bakery-driven chain Le Pain Quotidien for 1377 Sixth Avenue, the ground floor of the luxury Claridge’s rental building. The lease comprises 2,425 square feet of ground-floor space with an additional 1,300 square feet of basement storage space.
Aurify Brands bought Le Pain Quotidien and acquired the assets of Maison Kayser earlier this year, and is opening new Le Pain Quotidien eateries in former Maison Kayser locations. The bakery chain was founded in Brussels in 1990, and now operates over 260 locations worldwide.
“We’re opening it up as the new and improved LPQ, which will offer a superior culinary and hospitality experience than before,” said John Rigos, Co-CEO of Aurify Brands.
“We’re delighted that Aurify Brands chose to house a Le Pain Quotidien in what is the street level of our luxury residential building, Claridge’s. This is sure to be a hit with both our residents and the midtown businesses and community here on the Sixth Avenue corridor,” said Joshua J. Roth, senior vice president of retail at Manhattan Skyline Management Corp.
Joshua J. Roth handled the deal for the landlord in-house. RCS Real Estate Advisors represented Aurify Brands on the tenant side.
