The Southern California-based footwear designer Supra known for their unique skate shoes has inked a deal for a new location in Brooklyn.
The footwear designer and retailer will open its second New York City location – the first operating out of 4 Prince Street in trendy SoHo – in Beorum Hill at 288 Atlantic Avenue.
The new space spans 1,400 square feet on the ground floor of the building with twenty feet of window space. Several new tenants have joined the area including Lululemon Athletica, Burger on Smith, and Sottocasa.
“Retail in Boerum Hill continues to evolve. Atlantic Avenue and Smith Street are among the most vibrant retail corridors in the city,” Kristina Triglia said in a prepared statement. “This is our second deal on Atlantic Avenue in the past month, bringing exciting new tenants to the neighborhood.”
Mrs. Triglia was joined by managing director Ryan Condren of CPEX’s Retail division in representing the landlord, a local real estate investor. Michael Yadgard and Noelle Mastrangelo of Maxwelle New York represented Supra.
The lease was set for ten years and the asking rent was $80 per square foot.
In addition to their two stores in New York, Supra operates a third store in Paris, France. Though there are only three stores, Supra sells their shoes and apparel through hundreds of authorized details and distributors across the country including Zumiez and popular Californian Active Ride Shop and Shoe Palace.
