Cushman & Wakefield has secured a retail lease for 228 Smith Street, located between Douglass and Butler Streets in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens neighborhood. The space will be occupied by Painting with a Twist, the largest paint-and-sip franchise in the United States, where customers can come to learn to paint with friends in a fun and interactive environment.

The ground floor space contains approximately 900 square feet with additional basement space.  It features approximately 15 feet of frontage and is located on the border of Carroll Gardens, Cobble Hill, and Boerum Hill.  Neighboring tenants include Lululemon, Chase, Dunkin’ Donuts, Starbucks, and Trader Joe’s.

“This was a great transaction. We converted a residential ground floor unit into a prime commercial space,” said Cushman & Wakefield’s Nicole Liebman, who exclusively represented the landlord in this transaction.  “The tenant is a dry use/activity-based franchise retailer that will really add to the exciting landscape on Smith Street,” Nicole continued.
