Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2015, Joseph Abboud will occupy the ground floor of the 65,000 s/f property.

The new Joseph Abboud location will give men the opportunity to shop the brand for the first time outside of department and specialty stores.

RKF executive vice president Gary Alterman represented Joseph Abboud in the long-term lease transaction, while Cory Zelnik of the Zelnik & Company represented the owner of 424 Madison Avenue, BLDG Management Co.

According to Alterman, Joseph Abboud is one of several prominent menswear tenants on the Avenue today. It will share the block with Burberry, Brooks Brothers, Charles Tyrwhitt, Men’s Wearhouse, The Art of Shaving and Jos. A. Bank.
