Tangram, the 1.2 million-square-foot mixed-use development in Flushing, has leased space to two new retail tenants.
Funzy Play, an indoor playground and activity zone, and Queens Baby Store, a one-stop-shop for babies and children, will open later this year.
“It brings us immense joy to announce that Funzy Play and Queens Baby Store are joining the vibrant array of retail offerings at Tangram. From the outset, our vision was to create a 360-degree lifestyle destination for residents and visitors of all ages and to cater to the many growing families in Flushing,” said Helen Lee, Executive Vice President of F&T Group, which is developing Tangram with SCG America.
Funzy Play’s Flushing location will be its flagship store as well as its second outpost in the Tri-state area, with the first being in Jersey City. The indoor playground has committed to a 10-year lease for an approximately 6,000 s/f space at Tangram with plans to open by summer 2021.
Established in 2018 by early education specialists, Funzy Play was created to meet the educational and play needs of children from ages six months to six years old.
The new space at Tangram will include special party rooms with ball pits, themed toddler rooms and guided play spaces, a relaxation room for parents, educational classrooms, a tech-interactive center, and an array of slides and climbing structures for endless fun. Funzy Play will also provide an after-school program offering piano, art, ballet and foreign language instruction.
Queens Baby Store is expanding into Flushing with an 1,800 s/f space at Tangram that will also serve as its flagship location. Having signed a 10-year lease, Queens Baby Store is anticipated to open in summer 2021.
The Tangram development features residential, office and hotel space along with 275,000 s/f of curated retail in a multi-level space.
The development will offer a four-star Renaissance New York Flushing Hotel, a state-of-the-art 4DX movie theater from Regal Cinemas, Orangetheory Fitness Franchise, learn-to-swim facility Goldfish Swim School and the neighborhood’s first beer garden.
Tangram will also feature a 24,000 s/f food hall, as well as popular international eateries including Beijing-based Ju Qi, Taiwanese dessert bar Meet Fresh and Xiao Long Kan Hot Pot, one of the largest and most popular hot pot chains in China.
The development also houses two residential towers, Tangram House South, which commenced closings last year and is almost sold out, and Tangram House West, which will launch sales in 2021.
