Earlier in the week, we noticed that 27-18 44th Drive was under construction.1 Well, we did a little digging, and found two renderings for the proposed project, and a little more about the details of the space. Werwaiss & Co., Inc. is handling the leasing, and is asking for $5,000/month for the 1,000 square foot retail space. As you can see from the photos, it’s being marketed as a restaurant space.
Here is the description from their website:2
Court Square street retail space. New conversion. Court Square. Corner of Jackson Avenue and 44th Drive. Directly opposite Citibank Building and CUNY Law School. 2 Blocks from LaGuardia Community College. 3 Blocks from NYC Health Dept. Building. Mutiple residential and hotel developments within walking distance.
The site also mentions that the project will have availability in “April 2014,” which lines up what the construction worker on scene told us earlier in the week.
