Le Chick, a Miami-based restaurant founded by Coco Coig and Jorge Sanchez, recently purchased the building at 438 King Street. The sale was brokered by Charleston Commercial. The three-story property totaling almost 9,000 square feet sold for $5,995,000.
The restaurant concept was inspired by Rotisserie Amsterdam, the Dutch hotspot known for its rotisserie chicken and burgers. Plans are to open Le Chick by the end of 2022. You can see the Miami restaurant’s menu here.
Charleston Commercial – led by C. Kendrick and managing director Joshua Schaap – also leased three other retail spaces on King Street:
- The firm leased the 1,650-square-foot space at 550 King St. to OddFellows Ice Cream Co, a small-batch ice cream shop started in Brooklyn. The business is scheduled to open this fall
- They also handled the lease of 564 King St., a 1,422-square-foot space anchored by Hyatt Hotel. It will be the new home of The Drip Lounge, a medical spa administering FastVitaminIV, a blend of 19 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids designed to boost exercise intensity and recovery as well as improve concentration, mood, and sleep
- Lastly, they handled the leasing of 328 King St. to European clothing and fashion accessories brand Brandy Melville
“King Street is as vibrant as ever,” Schaap said. “These recent transactions demonstrate how much interest there is in downtown Charleston. From the expansion of local businesses to new businesses coming to town, this area is really booming. It’s an exciting time for retail and commercial space on King Street.”
