Long Island City retail is on the rise.

Winick Realty Group announced 12,919 square feet of retail space at the newly-built Gantry Park Landing luxury residential building has been fully leased. The space will be home to three new tenants expected to open in the fall. 

“Long Island City has truly emerged as a home for young families and the three new tenants we have brought to the building will go a long way to meet the demands of this currently underserved market,” said Winick Realty Group broker Hal Shapiro.

The largest tenant, which will occupy 7,590 square feet, is Urban Market. The full-service market provides gourmet cheese, fresh meat and seafood, prepared foods, and more. 

The second retail tenant, Beans, Grapes and Leaves, will use 1,059 square feet to offer upscale coffee, tea and wine. 

North Shore-LIJ Health System, the final tenant, will build a new 4,270-square-foot urgent care concept to the building.
