High-end European apparel retailers still crave a bite of the Big Apple motion – but more in inner-city neighborhoods than suburbs.
In the most recent big store news, Italy’s LuisaViaRoma has signed a lease for nearly 13,000 square feet at 1 Bond Street in red-hot Noho. This can be the brand’s first US location.
The flagship emporium can be 7,855 square feet on the sidewalk level and 5,000 square feet on the lower level. The asking rent was $250 per square foot. The constructing is across the road from Mayor Eric Adams’ favorite private club, Zero Bond.
LuisaViaRoma, based in Florence, offers women’s and men’s clothing. The Noho store will replace Blick Art Materials, which moved to a different location nearby last summer.
The owner was represented by a team of MONA brokers led by company founder Brandon Singer and included Michael Cody, Max Kreinces and Suzanne Berstock. The tenant was represented by Dan Harroch from DH Advisors.
Singer said, “NoHo has completely modified in the previous couple of years. LuisaViaRoma knew Bond Street was where they needed to be.”
MONA recently represented the owner of the Rockfeld Group at the brand new Gucci store at 45 Ninth Ave. within the Meat Packing District.
