NEW YORK—Dallas, Texas-based 7-Eleven has signed a 2,300-sq.-ft. lease at 1235 Second Avenue at the corner of East 65th Street.

7-Eleven was represented by Ariel Schuster of Robert K. Futterman & Associates, while landlord Madison Capital was represented by Winick Realty Group LLC Executive Vice President Darrell Rubens and his associate Annie Shinn.

The store, which was previously occupied by restaurant Asia Grill, sits at the base of a residential building in the Upper East Side. 7-Eleven will draw from the residential population in the area, as well as the foot-traffic generated by nearby Hunter College, movie theaters and hospital centers.
