Following in the footsteps of Grand Central Market's ongoing upscale makeover, the Spring Arcade Building, built in 1924, wants to revive itself with a flurry of new tenants, some of which are already committed to the 12-story, double-wing arcade that connects Spring Street and Broadway.
A total of 23 spaces are up for grabs, two with CUP for full liquor, ranging in size from 210 to 855 square feet (and spaces can also be combined up to 5,000 square feet). Some of the new tenants are another branch of taco king Guisados, Famima!!, the relocated Royal Clayton's, Crepes Sans Frontiers (open), and Gelateria Uli, a new gelato shop from couple Uli Nasib and Ryan Vaillancourt to be designed by Raveled Studio (Wendell, 643 North).
Basically, the Spring Arcade Building, once known as Mercantile Arcade Building, wants to bring in hip, up and coming operators to create a unique dining and drinking destination set within a historical structure. The building itself still retains its original Beaux Arts and Spanish Renaissance motifs and beautiful terracotta archway lunette, among other architectural design features. Interested in a space?
