NEW YORK—A new luxury rental tower, Abington House at the Highline in West Chelsea is getting its first retailer sometime in the next couple of months.
Think Coffee has signed a 10-year-lease for a relatively small retail space compared with its five other Manhattan locations.
At just 1000 square feet, the café will be faster-paced concept than its larger spaces in Flatiron, Union Square, Washington Square Park. the Meat Packing District, and East Village.
Think Coffee at 30th Street and 10th Avenue will be just across the road from the Hudson Yards project, which is still under construction. Both Abington House and the Hudson Yards are The Related Companies’ projects.
“We are thrilled to introduce a thriving local business to Abington House residents and our West Chelsea neighbors. Think Coffee’s modern and welcoming space will be a great addition to the building and offer residents and visitors a versatile menu and great coffee experience throughout the day,” said Daria Salusbury, senior vice president and head of luxury leasing at Related Companies.
Abington House was completed last year. The building is 33-stories, with 312 apartments. Current rentals range from $3095 for a studio on the 22nd floor, to $7,250 for a two-bedroom on the 19th floor, according to Streeteasy.
The building’s amenities include, a gym, concierge and doorman, garage parking (for an additional cost), a bike room, a media room, and party rooms.
Think Coffee donates 10 percent of its after-tax proceeds to charity. From their locations on the east side of Manhattan it donates to Grand Street Settlement, and on the west side, to Hudson Guild, which runs low cost and no cost children’s centers and a number of community programs.
