Steep Rock Bouldering, an East Harlem rock climbing gym, has signed a 6,500-square-foot lease at 79 Quay Street in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn for its first location in the borough and third outlet in New York City, Commercial Observer has learned.
The company leased a portion of the ground floor of the three-story building between West and Franklin Streets. The asking rent in the five-year deal was $24 per square foot, according to James Monteleone of All Points Real Estate, who represented landlord Quay Plaza LLC and the tenant.
“This location, on the corner of Quay and West Streets, is perfect for a climbing gym, which has become one of the newest and hottest attractions in New York City,” Monteleone said in a statement.
He later explained that the space has more than 23-foot-high ceilings.
Steep Rock Bouldering has an open location in East Harlem at 1506 Lexington Avenue between East 97th and East 98th Streets. And the company is planning to open a 5,300-square-foot outpost on Columbia University’s Manhattanville Campus at the new Jerome L. Greene Science Center, according to a news release from the school last year.
