Aritzia Will Take Over Former Dean & DeLuca Space in Soho
Fashion retailer Aritzia will be taking over the former Dean and DeLuca space at 560 Broadway in Soho. The 30,000-square-foot space will join other high-profile locations for Aritzia in Manhattan.
NKF vice chairmen Ben Birnbaum and Ariel Schuster, along with associate Andrew Taub, represented the landlord. Schuster and associate director Jason Wecker represented the tenant.
Aritzia is a design house and fashion boutique for women. Founded in Vancouver in 1984, Aritzia now has more than 95 locations in select cities across North America.
NKF says the new lease reinforces the flight to quality where iconic brands are pushing to take over high-profile spots. Dean & DeLuca exited the space last year as it closed all of its locations in the city.
