Co-working midtown showroom attracts top talent

Space 530, a full-service work environment and showroom concept, recently signed 10 new Members.


Since opening its doors in 2011, the multi-level facility has become a hub for some of the fashion and creative industries’ hottest companies.

Most recently, actor Matthew McConaughey’s JKL – Just Keep Livin’ brand, which features high-quality, on-trend apparel, took a space that will serve as its first U.S. showroom.

In addition, luxury fashion house Elie Tahari has committed to a showroom in the facility in order to feature one of its newest accessories lines.

Other notable signings include: travel and lifestyle brand Melissa Odabash, who brings her ultra-luxury swimwear to the space, historic British sportswear and fashion brand Gola Classics, and KORET New York, which plans to re-launch its fine leather handbag brand in its Space 530 showroom.

Renewing its commitment to Space 530 is Cynthia Steffe, widely recognized as one of the nation’s leading contemporary dress designers.

Incidentally, the brand’s parent company, Bernard Chaus, has been located on the 18th floor of Savitt Partners-owned 530 Seventh Avenue – also home to Space 530 – for the past 15 years.

In addition, men and women’s apparel company Tailor Vintage recently expanded within Space 530, which marks the third time they have moved showrooms within the facility in order to accommodate their growing business.

“Space 530 offers so much more than just a private workspace and showroom and being in the heart of New York, in close proximity to other successful and emerging brands, is great,” said Melissa Odabash.


Conceived by Savitt Partners founder and president Bob Savitt and creative space pioneer Debra Larsen, Space 530 offers 30 different-sized spaces in one facility.

Design highlights include an art collection, high ceilings, polished concrete floors, 16-foot windows, elegant glass fronts and contemporary furnishings.

Due to its flexible terms, Space 530 is ideal for start-ups such as Scarlett Poppy, a couture clothing collection created from Indian textile, which recently renewed its agreement a showroom.

4.collective, a desk-to-dinner clothing line, and Accuity Ads, a firm offering real-time advertising bidding also inked recommitments at. “We have experienced tremendous demand for showrooms at Space 530 by numerous hot new designers, established, high-profile fashion brands and new tech companies that we had to implement a wait-list,” said Savitt.

Ownership launched a Membership Program. For a monthly fee of $300, members receive a “virtual” office, and gain access to the Space 530 co-working space.
In addition to Space 530, the 530 Seventh Avenue is home to The Skylark, a classically styled cocktail lounge.
