Walter & Samuels announced that women’s clothing brand Gracia Fashion has signed a 10-year lease for 5,000 s/f of ground-level and 4,500 s/f of lower level retail space at 225 West 39th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in the heart of the Fashion District.
According to Walter & Samuels Chairman David I. Berley, who has owned the building for over 30 years, the location features high ceilings and 45 feet of visible frontage along West 39th Street, making it an ideal retail outpost for the internationally-recognized fashion label.
“This Fashion District asset is a wonderful historical building with great bones,” said Berley. “Yet, our interior offers fully modernized office and retail opportunities that we occupy with strong tenants, including world famous Israeli American fashion designer Yigal Azrouël and now Gracia Fashion, which has been a Fashion District retailer for many years.”
Winick Executive Vice President Lee Block and Associate Danielle Winick represented the tenant. The Winick team partnered with Peter Weiss, principal and senior executive managing director at Walter & Samuels, Inc., the building’s management company, to represent the building ownership.
“Gracia Fashion is a successful women’s clothing brand with a solid reputation born from a loyal customer base and a long-standing history in the Midtown West neighborhood,” said Block.
“We look forward to bringing Gracia Fashion into the building and having that relationship for years to come.”
Built in 1910, 225 West 39th Street features 90,000 s/f of loft space for office, showroom and retail uses across 12 floors. The surrounding area has numerous transportation options and amenities that include Skylark, Black Iron Burger and Ben’s Delicatessen.
