Peter Braus Wins Retail Deal of the Year

Veteran New York retail broker Peter Braus last night picked up the city’s top honor for relocating national restaurant and entertainment chain, City Winery, to the new Pier 57 on the Hudson River.

During a virtual awards ceremony hosted by the Real Estate Board of New York, the managing principal of Lee & Associates was honored with The Most Significant Retail Deal of the Year award.

Recognized as the most meaningful transaction in its overall characteristics and importance to the New York City retail market, the 2019 deal relocated City Winery from its longtime Hudson Square home to a purpose-built 31,229 s/f space at Pier 57 at West 15th Street and West Street.
