More retail is on its way to Long Island City.

Leasing for the retail spaces in real estate company TF Cornerstone’s East Coast Development, a mixed-use project of six buildings located on the Long Island City waterfront, has been completed by Winick Realty Group.

Of the six buildings, eight retail leases were signed at 45-45 Center Blvd., 45-40 Center Blvd., 46-10 Center Blvd., 46-15 Center Blvd. and 46-30 Center Blvd., according to the realty group.

“Through the strong market knowledge we have gained by working with many Long Island City developers, as well as assisting many active retailers, we were able to achieve record rent numbers and secure strong tenants on behalf of TF Cornerstone,” broker Aaron Fishbein said.

Joining New York Kids Club, which announced last August that it would be opening up a 5,003-square-foot space at 45-45 Center Blvd., will be three new tenants that range from fitness to children’s clothing.

Fitness program I Love Kickboxing has leased a 2,967-square-foot studio at the location, and children’s salon and clothing store Mimi & Mo is expected to open a 1,239-square-foot shop as well. European Wax Center, offering waxing services for men and women, has also signed up to occupy 1,252 square feet at the site.

An Italian restaurant from TD Restaurant Group, which is still unnamed, has signed a lease for a 7,733-square-foot ground floor restaurant at 46-10 Center Blvd. located directly behind the Pepsi-Cola sign. The restaurant will also occupy a 2,200-square-foot outdoor terrace overlooking the East River. Latin fusion restaurant Blend, Sweetleaf Coffee and Espresso Bar and Crank Cycling Studio are also located within the building.

“Working together with Winick Realty Group, we have been able to craft an incredible mix of retailers that will serve the residents in the East Coast Development, as well as the entire Long Island City community,” said Steve N. Gonzalez, head of retail leasing for TF Cornerstone.

New retail opportunities are coming to Rego Park just blocks from three major Queens malls.

Leasing has begun on 8,095 square feet of ground retail space at 92-77 Queens Blvd., which is currently under construction, Winick Realty Group announced. The site is expected to be move-in ready by 2015.

“We truly believe that this is an unparalleled opportunity for any retailer to position themselves in front of three major malls, Queens Boulevard, the Long Island Expressway, two subway lines and 10 bus lines,” said Winick Realty Group real estate broker Robert Heicklen.

Located adjacent to Rego Center and blocks away from Queens Center and Queens Place malls, 92-77 offers retailers 35 feet of all-glass frontage on 93rd Street and front- and rear-facing backlit signage.

Deals including one for a 16,000-square foot fitness center and another for a “well-known national coffee brand” are pending for two of the three spaces on the property, according to Winick Realty Group. The overall site features a 400-square-foot loading dock and on-site parking.

According to a Winick Realty Group online flyer, Retro Fitness and Starbucks are expected soon.

“Winick Realty Group is excited to represent this type of high-profile, high-visibility exclusive as we continue to expand our leasing efforts in the borough of Queens,” said Winick Realty Group President Steven Baker.

New retail space is opening up in Long Island City.

Winick Realty Group President Steven E. Baker announced that together with brokers Aaron S. Fishbein and Jeremy Schwartz, he will be marketing close to 150,000 square feet of retail space at the new building located at 30 -30 Northern Blvd. Winick Realty Group is marketing the space on behalf of Alma Realty Corp.

“This is a perfect opportunity for a big box retailer to make their presence known in Long Island City,” said Baker, who worked with the leasing of Long Island City’s waterfront retail on behalf of TF Cornerstone. “We are pleased to be a part of this incredible project that will help reshape the Long Island City retail landscape as we know it.”

The retail space will be within the new building, which will begin construction this year and includes three floors of retail space under 200,000 square feet of office space. The building will be connected to Long Island City’s iconic seven-story “Apple Building” and will include about 3,000 employees. Two levels of underground parking with valet services are also included.

The new building, which will be near Queens Plaza and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, is also expected to bring a large additional amount of foot traffic to the area.

“Long Island City has everything from three millions square feet of Class A office in the immediate area to 10,000 high rise luxury residential units and now the largest hotel brands in the world, including the Hilton, Marriot and Crowne Plaza,” said Fishbein. “Long Island City needs real retail to service the many growing elements of the neighborhood, and we are bringing the necessary amenities.”

Winick Realty Group is looking for tenants of “all use groups,” including restaurants and lounges, which could utilize the multiple rooftop spaces. The group also encouraged big-box or large retail tenants to take the opportunity.

“Long Island City is an incredibly dynamic neighborhood,” said Steve Valiotis, owner of Alma Realty. “Together with Winick Realty Group, Alma Realty embraces the opportunity to create a synergy of development in the neighborhood and bring this groundbreaking big-box retail opportunity to market, further complementing the new residential and office uses in the immediate vicinity.”
