SL Green, Armani to Partner on Boutique Store with Apartments
The Armani Group and SL Green plan to redevelop the Giorgio Armani boutique at 760 Madison Ave. on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The redesigned 97,000-square-foot building will contain a new flagship Armani retail boutique and 19 Armani-designed residences, one of which will be occupied by the designer.
SL Green Realty Corp., which took control of 760 Madison in 2012, will lead the development in collaboration with Armani Group. “Armani’s commitment to Madison Avenue and New York City is unwavering, and the brand’s leadership will preserve all that we, as New Yorkers, love about the Upper East Side of Manhattan,” said SL Green CEO Marc Holliday.
Architecture firm CookFox will design the building, which is intended to be in harmony with the Madison Avenue streetscape. The plan will require Landmarks Preservation Commission approval. Construction is expected to begin in 2020, and be complete in 2023.
