Washington Square Park is about to get sweeter. Häagen-Dazs will occupy 1,824 square feet, split between the ground floor and the lower level, on 55 East Eighth Street. The building, along a retail strip between University Place and Broadway, already has a Chipotle and a Cosi inside.
The ice cream chain will open during the summer, and faces competition from the nearby Coldstone Brewery on Broadway, as well as from Ben & Jerry’s on Third Avenue.
Beth Rosen and Ross Berkowitz of Robert K. Futterman & Associates, with Jennifer Watson and Phil Baugh of Baum Realty, represented the tenant. Bruce Spiegel and William Bergman of Rose Associates represented the landlord, Uniway Partners.
