Hiho Batik Space on Fifth For Rent


Hiho Batik has been one of the more unique business in Park Slope since it opened in September 2012. The kid-oriented boutique and art space is divided into three sections: a shop up front selling clothing and accessories made on-site, a party/ DIY batik space in the middle, and a workshop in the back. And while batik (the art of using wax and dyes to create an image on fabric) is a pretty cool artform, it appears as if there's not enough business to support it: A "For Rent" sign has recently gone up in the front door.

According to LoopNet, the 1,200 square foot space is available for about $7,000/ month, and it's zoned for retail, medical, or dental use (no food). It was listed on Feb 27.

There's also a For Rent sign at Tip-Top Gift on 5th Ave, and Glow is going out of business, which leaves three empty storefronts in a row on that block. Very sad. A new addition is coming in the Baluchi's space, though: Il Sogno (they have a location in Staten Island - it gets mixed reviews so I'm not super excited, but it will be better than nothing). I only know about that because I live near there and they were handing out fliers about their liquor license application.

5th avenue sucks, 7th is flourishing again.

Can't wait for the new Blue Bottle coffee to open!

Oh, and Surfish has been closed the past few nights - not sure if that's permanent.

I think a real estate office would go GREAT in this location. What do you guys think?

$7,000 a month is a bargain for this space. Only a cowardly businessman would hesitate at signing that lease.

Surffish is closed Monday and Tuesday. And so glad to see the "grown-ups" here again "my avenue is better than yours".

Hiho is moving to a larger space on 5th. The studio they have in the back is not large enough. $7000 for that space is actually a great price. It will rent in a NYC minute

Anyone know what's moving into the old Brooklyn Central location?

April 3, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJohn

John, I believe a restaurant called the Gristmill is moving into the Brooklyn Central space.

I have an idea of what should move in: a nail salon! It can share space with a real estate office as a two-for-one!

Sometime this is very much beneficial to leave tenant rather than owner. This experience feels you free from many issues related to tax, depreciation cost and inflation in values.
