First Retailer Prepares to Open in Ground-Floor Space at Arias Park Slope in Brooklyn

FasTracKids will soon become the first retailer to open for business at Arias Park Slope as the early childhood learning center is gearing up for an anticipated July 1st grand opening at the new luxury rental building in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood.

The early education innovator will occupy approximately 1,500 square feet of street-level space at the 12-story building located at 150 4th Avenue, according to The Iconic Group, developer of Arias Park Slope.

“The opening of our first retail tenant will be another significant milestone for Arias Park Slope and for 4th Avenue’s evolving retail corridor,” notes Hillel Fischman, a Managing Director of The Iconic Group. “FasTracKids is a great addition to the neighborhood as it will provide a sought-after service to both our residents and the community at large.”

With locations worldwide, FasTracKids offers early education programs for children aged six months to 8 years. The curriculum is based upon innovative technology and interactive programs that develop key school and life readiness skills such as critical thinking, creativity, confidence, communication and collaboration.

The addition of FastTracKids leaves 4.400 square feet of prime retail space available at Arias Park Slope. For information on retail leasing opportunities, please contact Ryan Condren or Eric Altschul of CPEX at (718) 935-1800.

Arias Park Slope’s retail component complements the building’s urban cosmopolitan atmosphere which has garnered considerable public attention since leasing opened earlier this spring. Almost 40% of the 95 upscale residences have been leased.

The building features a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom luxury residences complemented by a comprehensive recreational and social amenity package unrivaled in this marketplace. Monthly rents currently range from the $2,100’s for studios, $2,400’s for one-bedroom homes and $3,400’s for two-bedroom residences. Initial occupancy is scheduled for July.

Originally conceived as a condominium building, the new Ismael Leyva-designed building is notable for its multi-toned brick façade which has been inspired by neighboring brownstones and is punctuated by expansive windows, floating glass balconies, and a four-story glass curtain wall that optimizes natural light and captivating views of Prospect Park and the Manhattan skyline.

“Found throughout the homes are high ceilings, solid white oak flooring and chef-inspired kitchens with polished white stone countertops, custom European design white oak cabinetry, breakfast bar and fully-equipped stainless steel appliances,” notes Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, Inc. “Bathrooms are equally impressive, offering marble vanity tops, polished chrome fixtures and deluxe soaking tubs. Most homes also have private terraces or balconies for desirable outdoor space.”

Zen-inspired, state-of-the-art recreational and social amenities complete the contemporary urban living experience at Arias. Residents will enjoy a 24-hour attended lobby, a state-of-the-art fitness center and Yoga room, and a resident’s lounge featuring a catering kitchen & bar, billiards, plasma TV and a fireplace.

Considerable outdoor space is provided by both the Arias Courtyard which offers a putting green and seating area and the Arias Terrace which features an outdoor garden and seating area.

In addition, the Arias Club 360 boasts 360° rooftop views of Brooklyn and the Manhattan Skyline, lush landscaping with over 600 feet of grass, a soothing water feature, a massive fire pit with seating, a grill, bar & dining area, private cabanas, sunbeds and an outdoor shower.

Even more amenities include a pet spa, cold & dry grocery storage, available onsite automated parking, storage units, and complimentary bicycle racks.

Situated at 150 Fourth Avenue in Park Slope, the backdrop of Arias is one of Brooklyn’s most sought-after residential addresses. Residents will reside in a bohemian neighborhood known for its culture, dining, shops and galleries. Steps away from Arias are some of New York City’s most popular attractions, including the Botanical Gardens, Academy of Music, Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park and Brooklyn Public Library.

“While there’s certainly no shortage of things to do in this historic neighborhood, residents will also appreciate our location just minutes from transportation to New York City, bringing the cultural, entertainment and business opportunities of Manhattan close at hand,” says Ms. Urgo.
