Popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A has set their sights on the Union Square location that was formerly the iconic Blue Water Grill.
The restaurant at 31 Union Square West has been vacant since January 1, and according to a report by Crain’s “Chick-fil-A is negotiating a lease” for that location.
However, Blue Water Grill closed due to a rent increase that was over $2-million annually. While no exact details have been released, we’re assuming $2-million is still the rent price being asked for. If the space is purchased entirely, it’ll be one of Chick-fil-A’s largest at 11,000-square-feet.
Chick-fil-A currently has six locations in Manhattan—include one on Fulton Street deemed the world’s largest Chick-fil-A which is 12,000-square-feet— and one in Queens.
