Swiss Shoemaker Chooses Resnick Tower for First U.S. Retail Store
Swiss shoemaker brand Le Majordome will establish its first U.S. retail location at Jack Resnick & Sons’ 485 Madison Ave. in the Plaza District. Its new Manhattan flagship store is scheduled to open in November.
“This transaction demonstrates Manhattan’s continued retail and commercial office recovery, as well as Madison Avenue’s strong allure to high end international brands,” said Jonathan Resnick, president of Jack Resnick & Sons.
Le Majordome was represented by CBRE’s Eric Gelber and Jordan Kaplan of CBRE. Jack Resnick & Sons was represented in-house by managing director Adam Rappaport.
Kaplan said, “Midtown Manhattan’s Madison Avenue, which has traditionally been home to major corporate office headquarters and luxury retailers, is a perfect match to jump start a global expansion and brand recognition campaign The new store at 485 Madison will honor Le Majordome’s traditional shoemaking craftsmanship in a modern and elegant setting.”
