RKF arranged a 2,600 s/f lease with Lush Cosmetics at Hotel Belleclaire, at 2175 Broadway.
The brand, known for its fresh, handmade and ethical bath, body, hair and skincare products, operates 200 stores across the United States with six other stores located in New York City.
It will open at the base of the Hotel Belleclaire this coming fall.
RKF Managing Director David Abrams represented the landlord, Triumph Hotels, in the transaction. Lush Cosmetics was represented by Newmark Knight Frank’s Matthew Krell.
Located on the southwest corner of West 77th Street, 2175 Broadway is between Central Park and Riverside Park. Hotel Belleclaire recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation with the installation of a new grand entrance on Broadway and the restoration of the façade.
Neighbors include Apple, Barneys New York, Bloomingdale’s the Outlet Store, Citarella, Equinox and lululemon athletica.
With 12-foot ceilings, the store has 1,600 s/f of retail space on the ground floor and 1,000 on the lower level.
“We have been working with Triumph Hotels since 2012, when they first sought authorizations for the renovation process. We are thrilled to bring Lush to one of Hotel Belleclaire’s three retail spaces,” said Abrams.
RKF is marketing 6,600 s/f of retail space on the ground floor and an additional 5,300 s/f in the lower level, all of which can be divisible for multiple tenants.
