Meridian Retail Leasing, the retail leasing division of Meridian Capital Group, has arranged a long-term lease for Particle Ink at 771 Ninth Avenue in the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood of New York, NY. President of New York Retail Leasing, James Famularo, represented both the landlord and the tenant.

Particle Ink will open its first location at 771 Ninth Avenue between West 51st and West 52nd Streets in a four-story property spanning a total of 13,500 square feet in addition to the building next door. The new world premiere show will offer an immersive digital experience, taking the audience through the living pages of a graphic novel with cirque-style physical performance. As viewers wander through the building, they will experience six total acts in 15-minute increments. The space also features a ground-floor restaurant and bar serving food and beverages following every performance. 771 Ninth Avenue features incredible visibility, with 50 feet of frontage along Ninth Avenue, and benefits from heavy foot traffic, easy access to the A and C trains at the 50th Street subway station, and proximity to an array of popular neighbors including Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken, the Meatball Shop, Empanada Mama, Jasper’s, and Bar Nine.

“After a year of negotiations, we are pleased to bring Particle Ink to 771 Ninth Avenue, our team’s first listing at Meridian,” said Mr. Famularo. “This unique experience is unlike any concept that currently exists in Manhattan and is a natural fit for the space, which benefits from incredible visibility on Ninth Avenue and proximity to public transportation, popular neighborhood restaurants, and New York attractions including nearby Broadway theaters.”
