PHILADELPHIA, PA — Vicki Siokis Freeman, senior director/leasing, HSP Real Estate Group, a member of NAI Global, has arranged a lease for City Winery at Fashion District Philadelphia. It will be the seventh venue for the popular winery and entertainment brand, which has taken a 29,762 s/f space with a long-term lease at the 838,000 s/f shopping and lifestyle center being co-developed by Macerich and PREIT in downtown Philadelphia. Working locally with Freeman on behalf of the tenant were Scott Mertz, president, and John Adderly, executive vice president/managing director of NAI Mertz. The owners’ representatives were Sean Burke and Chuck Bragitakos of Vibrant Leasing Strategies.
“City Winery is a unique brand that exemplifies the next generation of food and beverage businesses that offer an experiential retail element to the communities in which they are located,” said Freeman. “I have had the pleasure to work with Michael Dorf, Founder and CEO, on both the Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia venues. I look forward to expanding the City Winery brand on a national basis through NAI Global.”
