The popular coffee house Irving Farm Coffee Roasters is making its way to The Village with its ninth New York City shop, in a 3,500-square-foot space.
The signed lease will span 15 years for the two-story corner location at Thompson Street, just one block from Washington Square Park. It is considered the heart of New York University’s Greenwich Village campus, as well as a center of the general neighborhood.
The space was recently renovated in total and the asking price for rent was $200 per square-foot. The neighborhood can expect to see the doors open sometime this coming spring.
The rental was in great demand, according to Peter Braus of Lee & Associates, the representative of CEJ Properties, the landlord. Irving Farm was attracted to the space by its “outstanding location,” and is destined to be “an amenity for both the Greenwich Village community and New York University’s student body.”
“A large-format cafe will be a great addition to this neighborhood,” said Matthew Schuss of Winick Realty Group, which represented Irving Farm. He added that Irving Farm is looking forward to serving “the large NYU student population” and Greenwich Village at large.
