Exit 4 food hall
There is one vacant retail space in the 149-157 East Main St. building, and Gordon said the new owners and Admiral Real Estate will seek to fill it. Gordon said the new owners “are looking to have that space generate income.”
John Barrett, who marketed the building as the head of investment sales at Admiral Real Estate, said in the release the sale “represented an opportunity for the buyer to acquire an investment-grade asset of significant size in a space-constrained market, with a track record of tenant and cash-flow stability.” He added that the addition of Modell’s “will be a catalyst for more retail shoppers on the block.”
Barry Cohen, of Pound Ridge, one of the new principal owners, said this is a “good viable market,” and the effort now is to find a tenant for the one vacant space.
With Modell’s coming and the movie theater across the street, “it’s got a lot of traffic, it’s got a lot of visibility and I think we picked up a nice building for a good value,” he said.
In February, Exit 4 Food Hall opened in what was the former space. The eatery has nine food stations that range from sandwiches to seafood, pastas, pizzas and wraps, as well as beer, wine and coffee drinks.
Exit 4 Food Hall,
the emporium in the former Belizzi space in Mount Kisco, opens Feb. 3, with nine food stations serving seafood, sandwiches, pastas, pizzas and wraps. A bar serves wine, beer and coffee drinks.
The opening follows the super-hot food hall trend in Manhattan and Brooklyn of the last several years. Hipster foodies (and hungry office workers) are drawn to new places like Gansevoort Market in the meatpacking district, Berg’n in Prospect Heights and Le District in the financial district to order from such artisan vendors as Luke’s Lobster, Mighty Quinn and Black Seed Bagels.
