Trinity Place Department Store has opened up shop at 61 Broadway.
The newly established department store has opened a 26,141-square-foot operation, spanning three stories at the base of 61 Broadway in the Financial District.
The location will be its flagship store; the company plans to open in London, Paris and Milan in the coming year. Trinity Place aims to bring together a blend of American modern and European classic styles and hold itself to affordability and high quality, as noted in its mission statement.
The store will feature brands such as Goldie London, Sugarhill Boutique, LeBunny Bleu and Miss Patina.
“Everything in the space is brand-new,” said David Israni of Broad Street Development. “BSD created a storefront and updated other infrastructure.”
“New bathrooms, ceilings, lighting, A/C [and] internal staircases in the retail space were added,” said Mr. Israni. “The tenant worked on adding features that are visible when walking in the store.”
David Israni was joined by his colleague Ramona Huegal in representing BSD, the landlord. Thomas Kaufman and Rory Murphy of Cushman & Wakefield were on the other side of the table representing Trinity Place.
“61 Broadway is almost 100 years old,” Mr. Israni further noted about the building’s efforts to modernize. “BSD has recently upgraded the elevators and is starting a capital project of updating the bathrooms [and] hallways. They have their pre-built program at the building [as well].”
