GREENWICH VILLAGE — A new coffee shop is coming to West Third and Thompson Streets, courtesy of a company with an upstate roastery.
Irving Farm Coffee Roasters inked a 15-year lease for the 3,500-square-foot, two-story corner space at 78 West Third St., just off Washington Square Park.
“We received a lot of interest from restaurateurs, but ownership was especially excited to partner with such a successful local business like Irving Farm,” said Lee & Associates Managing Principal Peter Braus, who represented CEJ Properties, the owner of the space.
The building was recently gut-renovated with an eye to restoring the space's neighborhood character, according to Lee & Associates Managing Director JP Sutro.
“A large-format café will be a great addition to this neighborhood,” said Matthew Schuss of Winick Realty Group, who represented the tenant in the lease deal. “Irving Farm is excited to bring their high-quality coffee and food to the area and look forward to serving not only the large NYU student population, but also the scores of residents that call Greenwich Village home.”
The coffee shop is expected to open this spring. It will be Irving Farm's eighth location in New York City.
