Footwear Brand Dolce Vita Steps into SoHo Lease

Newmark Retail secured a new 3,165-square-foot lease for the New York City-founded, global footwear brand Dolce Vita. The new outpost will open at 489 Broadway in SoHo.  

Vice chairman Ariel Schuster, director Andrew Connolly and associate Logan Ryan represented the landlord Sherr Equities. Executive managing director Ross Kaplan and associate William Chaplin represented Dolce Vita. 

Two Manhattan-based shoemakers started Dolce Vita in 2001 and quickly made a name for themselves. The brand is known for its trend-driven style featuring edgy embellishments, thoughtful details and archive-inspired vintage touches that make each silhouette unique. 

“We continue to see a surge in demand for retail space in SoHo, specifically on Broadway,” said Schuster. “This transaction further illustrates that many brands seek out space in this highly trafficked corridor to establish their footprint and reach consumers.”
