Looks like the little flea market on the southwest corner of Spring and Wooster might be doomed. NYC the Blog reports that Sinvin Realty is advertising the lot for lease. Their proposal involves a glassy built-to-suit building that could go up to five stories—a "unique single tenant flagship opportunity" for a brand that wants to share a neighborhood with Chanel, John Varvatos, Barneys Co-op, and a host of other high-end stores. Sinvin's list of neighboring tenants doesn't include the brand-new Crocs store directly across the street from the lot, but we're sure that was just an oversight.
