Newmark Retail has arranged leases for Express, Inc.'s Express Edit and UpWest store concepts in Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood

Newmark Retail Arranges Three SoHo Leases for Express

Newmark Retail has secured three new leases on behalf of fashion retailer Express, Inc., totaling more than 18,000 square feet in SoHo. The leases include 9,100 square feet at 514 Broadway and 8,700-plus square feet at 129 Fifth Ave. for two Express Edit stores and 1,000 square feet at 107 Spring Street for the first UpWest store in Manhattan.  

Vice chairmen Jeremy Ezra and Ariel Schuster, along with director Michael Paster, represented the tenant on all three transactions. 

“Over the past several months, we’ve seen the continued demand for retail space in Manhattan, which is one of the strongest economic drivers of the city’s recovery,” said Schuster. “By launching Express Edit concepts in two of the most vibrant shopping neighborhoods and introducing UpWest, an entirely new option to feed the appetites of New York shoppers, Express will be reintroduced to the market as a notable retailer in Manhattan.”
