With an eye on Downtown’s growing population and the towering redevelopment of the World Trade Center site, Fairway Market executives have chosen lower Tribeca for their next store, to open in fall of 2014. In an announcement on Monday, Fairway said it would be opening a two-story, 52,242-square-foot store at 255 Greenwich St., at Murray. The store will be located a block south of Tribeca’s Whole Foods and a block west of Amish Market. It will be Fairway’s 16th supermarket in the Tri-State area. Fairway has signed a long-term lease with Jack Resnick and Sons, owners of the office building, which includes Borough of Manhattan Community College as a tenant. In a statement, the real estate company’s CEO, Burt Resnick, called Greenwich Street “the spine that connects Tribeca with Downtown” and said he sees the store as serving multiple neighborhoods in Lower Manhattan. Eventually, Greenwich Street will again connect northern and southern Lower Manhattan through the World Trade Center site, which will be open to pedestrians and authorized vehicles only.
