Winick Realty Group LLC Leases Williamsburg Child Care Center at 175 Kent Avenue
Brooklyn, New York -

Bright Horizons, the brand of internationally-recognized child care centers operating in the United States, Europe, and Canada, leased its first Brooklyn location at 175 Kent Avenue, between N 3rd and N 4th Streets in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The Watertown, MA-based company serves as the corporate daycare of Chase Bank and has consistently been the only child care organization named to the "100 Best Companies to Work for in America" list by FORTUNE magazine.

Bright Horizons will occupy 2,484 square feet on the ground floor, as well as 18,228 square feet in the lower level, when it opens in 2013. The center is located at the base of a luxury rental building, with another high-end rental building across the street and a park only a few blocks away.

 “We had a lot of interest in the space, but the landlord wanted to wait for the right tenant and the right use. With so many young families moving into the area in recent years, an amenity of this kind will be an amazing addition to Kent Avenue and to Williamsburg,” said Diana D. Boutross, senior managing director at Winick Realty Group LLC, who represented landlord The Chetrit Group in this 15-year lease transaction along with Winick Realty Group LLC Executive Vice President Lori Shabtai. Bright Horizons was represented by Peter Occhi and Michael Hofmann of Cassidy Turley.

Winick Realty Group LLC has proved to be a leader in the Williamsburg retail market, representing top landlords in the area and revitalizing the neighborhood with such varied tenants as popular Asian fusion restaurant Fushimi, nail salon Nail It, organic markets and more. Boutross is currently working with tenants from the Lower East Side and SoHo to bring them to one of New York’s most dynamic areas.
