Dubai Watch Week Leases Pop-Up Shop in Meatpacking District

Dubai Watch Week has taken 4,985 square feet of pop-up retail space at 875 Washington St. in New York City’s Meatpacking District. Dubai Watch Week, a consumer-oriented show intended to shine a light on the often-overlooked American watch industry, will occupy three units for the event which runs Sept. 24-25. 

A Retail by MONA team led by CEO Brandon Singer along with Michael Cody, Suzanne Bernstock and Max Kreinces represented landlords RFR Realty and Raycliff Capital as well as the tenant.  The Dubai Watch Week location will have over 90 feet of total frontage at 875 Washington St. 

“This building, with its unparalleled and highly visible retail frontage, is extremely attractive for luxury retailers,” said Singer. “We recently signed Breitling to a long-term lease at 875 Washington and continue to see high-profile retailers taking space on and around this vibrant corner of the Meatpacking District.”
