The end (beginning?) is in sight for the much-delayed hotel/condo project the Smith, and the building’s ground-floor retail spaces have just hit the market. For over a year the development’s marketers have said the space will probably be filled by a high-end grocer like Gourmet Garage or Dean & Deluca, and the broker in charge of leasing the space says that’s still true. “We’re hoping to get something like a Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s,” says Petar Videv of A&I Broadway Realty, apparently unaware of the latter’s plans just up the block. Videv says construction on the project should be finished sometime in January, and that the hotel and condo are expected to open then. While it seems doubtful that Trader Joe’s would take space so close to its planned store at Atlantic and Court, or that Whole Foods would be satisfied with 7,800 square feet, it does seem to be a reasonable fit for a store like Gourmet Garage.
