Newmark Retail announces it has completed an 11,242-square-foot lease for discount chain Five Below at 163-40 Jamaica Avenue in Jamaica, New York. Newmark Vice Chairman Barry Fishbach, Executive Managing Director Jason Pruger and Director Young Kim represented the asset owner, BEB Capital in the transaction. Five Below was represented by Doug Weinstein and Tom Rettaliata of RIPCO Real Estate.
“163-40 Jamaica Avenue is in a great high-traffic area in a high-density location surrounded by many national retailers. Jamaica Avenue has benefited from the rezoning and residential development,” said Fishbach.
Five Below will lease 11,242 square feet at the property for a term of 12 years. A Modell’s Sporting Goods formerly occupied the space. The new Five Below location is expected to open before the end of 2022.
163-40 Jamaica Avenue is located on the South block between 165th Street and Guy R Brewer Boulevard. It is proximate to CUNY York College—which has an average attending population of 8,000—and to the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer stop servicing the Long Island Railroad, E, J and Z lines, with an annual ridership of over 10 million. Neighborhood tenants include Burlington, H&M, Home Depot, Rainbow, City MD, Footlocker, Cookie’s Kids Department Store, Boston Market, Bank of America, Spectrum, Panda Express, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Snipes and Metro by T Mobile.
Remaining available at the property is a 432-square-foot space on the ground floor and an 11,529-square-foot space on the lower level. The available spaces would be an ideal location for a gym or medical use.
