This fall, One Kings Lane, the online home goods retailer, will open its first New York City shop in a 200-year-old house in the heart of Soho, the company announced today.
After nine years as an e-commerce retailer and following last year’s first shop opening in Southampton, the NYC flagship will be located at the landmarked 143 Spring Street in Soho, replacing former tenant Croc’s.
Robin Abrams and Rebecca Olshan of Eastern Consolidated had the retail listing. Richard Skulnik at Ripco Real Estate represented One Kings Lane in the deal.
One Kings Lane Soho will be housed in the Federal-style building at the corner of Wooster and Spring Streets. 143 Spring Street is believed to be the oldest building in Soho, dating back to 1818. Originally built as a residence, the property underwent substantial changes in structure and occupancy, in 1850 was converted into a commercial location, and in 2010 received a modern glass addition, bringing it to 3,500 square feet of shoppable retail space.
“We are so thrilled to be opening our New York City flagship in Soho this fall. Our first shop, which opened in Southampton last summer, set the tone for this next opening and future stores to come. It was extremely important to us to find the right space – one that has deep roots in the local community and could provide the perfect backdrop for the storytelling we do around our product,” said Debbie Propst, president of One Kings Lane, in a press release. “As a brand that’s all about the mix, finding a space that includes some of the oldest and newest construction in Soho is a perfect fit for us.”
The One Kings Lane store will feature an assortment of home furnishings, including the One Kings Lane Collection, vintage and antiques, and one-of-a-kind pieces including handmade art that will be “constantly replaced” with new and different items, as well as professional design services, with professional designers on staff.
