The Washington Condos to get upscale grocer?!

The September issue of the Real Deal has an interesting article on Prospect Heights retail opportunities, and of course, is peppered with mother-and-son combo Peggy and Brendan Aguayo.

Of note is the mention that retail space with more than 1,000 sf is hard to find-- but the street-level of the Washington Condos is over 5,000 sf. Aguayo surmises that it would be rented or sold to an 'upscale grocer.' All hearsay at the moment, but it would be intriguing.

Except when you think of where all the shoppers will park. Recall that this was supposed to be a medical condo and some of the parking spots were to be reserved for patients.

Interestingly enough, the lobby of the Greene House Condos is also a medical space and that has yet to be leased.

We NEED a good grocery store around there - the Met is ok for canned goods and cereal, but their produce makes me want to gag. The Met doesn't have parking, so why would this need it? There isn't enough space for a huge store, so it probably won't be servicing people with big shopping lists anyway.

The medical space at the GreeneHouse condos is a condominium. The individual spaces were sold to different doctors and dentists. They have sold all the spaces, except for one small office I believe. The doctors will be moving in shortly.
