Jewelry Brand Vashi Inks SoHo Lease for First U.S. Store

Vashi, a British fine jewelry brand, has signed an 11,777-square-foot, 15-year lease at SL Green Realty Corp.’s 110 Greene St. in SoHo. This will be Vashi’s first location in the U.S. and marks one of SL Green’s most significant retail lease signings of 2021.

“Our recent retail leases are a positive marker that business owners are increasingly bullish on New York City’s reopening and the surge of returning residents, office workers and tourists spearheading our revival,” said Brett Herschenfeld, managing director of retail at SL Green.

110 Greene St. is a 223,600-square-foot mixed-use building. The retail space at the building, along Greene and Mercer streets, offers tenants high visibility on two of the strongest retail streets in Manhattan, says SL Green.

Joseph Hudson of CBRE represented Vashi in the transaction, while SL Green was represented in-house.
