New Construction in NODA brings Neighborhood Services

New Building in NODA , will bring Eclectic Gallery/Wine bar and Yoga Studio to East 36th Street.

A new building at “36th Street near The Plaza that’s been under construction for about a year now. Local artist Nick Napoletano recently painted a multicolored swirl mural on its front facade.

The development will soon be home to an eclectic wine/coffee bar called Artisan’s Palate, which will occupy 2,500 square feet of space, according to Greg Godley and Andrew Blumenthal of Legacy Real Estate Advisors. A yoga studio will take up 4,200 square feet in the building, too.

Owner Christa Choska describes Artisan’s Palate as “a community house” and a neighborhood hangout, complete with a coffee house and a full bar that’ll serve everything from wine to craft cocktails.” 

Greg Godley and Andrew Blumenthal of Legacy Real Estate Advisors, LLC are working to fill the development with complimentary neighborhood service in the two empty spaces that remain in the development — one is 650 square feet, and the other is 2,500 square feet. Developers are expecting businesses to open sometime in early 2019.  “We get a ridiculous amount of retail demand for the NoDa area. We wanted to go and supply some neighborhood services to the area,” Blumenthal said.
