Famous Footwear signed a lease for its second Manhattan outpost, a 7,800-square-foot store at 48-50 West 14th Street, The Commercial Observer has learned.
The block-through Union Square retail site features 50 feet of frontage on 14th Street and 25 feet on 13th Street, next to the New School.
The tenant “felt that the neighborhood was a strong traffic generator for their demographic, thanks to the nearby New School and all of the name brand retailers coming to the area,” Kelly Gedinsky of Winick Realty Group said in a prepared statement. “They are excited to capitalize on the Sixth Avenue corridor.”
Ms. Gedinsky represented the landlord, CB Developers, in the transaction. Andrew Mandell and Richard Skulnik of Ripco represented the tenant. The space also includes a 1,000-square-foot basement.
“There is a PATH station nearby, as well as the 1, F and L trains so this store will be very accessible by people coming from all over the city,” Ms. Gedinsky said.
