Allbirds Signs Lease for Flagship Store in Union Square/Flatiron

Bromley Companies has signed a long-term lease for Allbirds at 120-122 Fifth Ave. The sustainable footwear and apparel company will occupy 4,500 square feet on the ground floor and 3,500 square feet on the lower level TO anchor the property and will utilize the prominent corner location as one of its U.S. flagships. 
“We believe Allbirds represents one of the most compelling omnichannel retailers today,” said Peter Tong, Bromley SVP.

Cushman & Wakefield’s Alan Schmerzler, Sean Moran and Pat O’Rourke represented Bromley Companies. Allbirds was represented by Matthew Seigel and Skye Taylor of Lantern Real Estate Advisors + Partners.  
“Allbirds was seeking another true global flagship to build on the success of its existing locations on Spring Street in SoHo and Columbus Avenue on the Upper West Side,” said Schmerzler. “This transaction continues to highlight the Union Square/Flatiron District as a key submarket for retailers.”
