REAL ESTATE WEEKLY — New York-based dermatologist Dr. Bobby Buka, who counts celebrities Sarah Jessica Parker and Julianne Moore as patients, will open his sixth medical office at 247 East 28th Street following the completion of a lease signed by ABS Partners Real Estate.
The new location, known as Kips Bay Dermatology, sits on the corner of 28th Street and Second Avenue and offers 1,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Kips Bay Dermatology is slated to open in August 2017.
John Brod, Mark Tergesen and Joseph Italiaander of ABS Partners represented the landlord, MB Grayson, a subsidiary of May Bao, in the transaction, while the tenant was represented by Michael Yadgard of Maxwelle New York. Asking rent in the deal was $85 per square foot.
“Kips Bay was the next natural location for Dr. Buka, who attracts clientele from all over New York City. The new office at 247 East 28th Street will draw patients from several Midtown East neighborhoods, like Murray Hill, in addition to clients from the Upper East Side and Queens, who previously had to travel to offices downtown,” said Brod, a partner at ABS.
