The time-honored and the new took center stage at the Real Estate Board of New York’s 20th annual Retail Deal of the Year Awards Cocktail Party Tuesday evening. The revival of FAO Schwarz in a new location at Rockefeller Center was named “The Most Significant Retail Deal of the Year,” while Peloton’s ride into Brookfield’s Manhattan West development was honored as the Most Ingenious Retail Deal of the Year.
Cushman & Wakefield’s Kenji Ota and Neil Seth were honored for arranging the year’s most significant deal, the Most Significant Retail Deal of the Year Award. A JLL team of Patrick Smith, Matthew Ogle, Corey Zolcinski and Bob Gibson represented Brookfield, and NKF’s Benjamin Birnbaum advised Peloton in the most ingenious retail deal.
“The retail brokers’ achievements are a model for other retailers and brokers as they navigate opportunities in the evolving retail sector,” said REBNY president John H. Banks.
