The Former Chase Bank on Delancey Now Leasing; All Uses Considered

The Gagosian Gallery has dibs on 104 Delancey through the end of the week (May 23) with its popular Urs Fischer sculpture installation. Thereafter, the retail space will fall back into a period of dormancy and decay. Old habits die hard.

Ever since Chase Bank brass decided to close the redundant location at Delancey and Ludlow, the spot has been a perpetual vacancy. Leasing signs were here for so long that they’re now part of the building itself. Yet now it looks like RKF has also scored broker rights.

The newish real estate listing markets the “vanilla box” toward another bank branch, but all uses are still considered, including nightlife. Three floors (12,000 square-feet) are at play here, and for an unknown monthly amount (natch). So that means Delancey Medical & Dental is being booted.

The owner is looking to fill the space immediately.

Meanwhile, let’s suppress those collective nightmares of another DL-esque clusterfuck opening here.
