RKF is marketing two retail spaces at 955 Madison Avenue, located on the east block between 75th and 76th Streets.
RKF executive vice president Karen Bellantoni and vice president Beth Rosen are exclusively marketing the boutique units on behalf of the landlord, 35 East 75th Street Corp.
Space A, situated between Gianvito Rossi and Christian Louboutin, totals 2,255 s/f with 1,155 s/f on the ground floor and 1,100 square feet in the basement.
Space B, adjacent to the soon-to-open Annick Goutal, is comprised of 600 s/f t on the ground floor and 450 s/f in the basement. Ownership will be delivering the spaces with newly renovated storefronts with modern finishes, as well as brand new HVAC units.
The two retail units represent an opportunity to be part of a rapidly transforming section of Madison Avenue, as residential developments continue, new retailers join the area, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art prepares to take over the old Whitney Museum space in the Marcel Breuer building at 75th and Madison.
RKF recently arranged three new leases Gianvito Rossi, Annick Goutal and Jitrois. The locations mark firsts for luxury shoe brand Gianvito Rossi, who is establishing its first brick-and-mortar location in the world, and for leather luxury label Jitrois, who is establishing its first U.S. store. This is Annick Goutal’s second store in the U.S. and New York City, with its flagship store situated at 397 Bleecker Street in the West Village.
Other nearby co-tenants include Intermix, Missoni, Vince, Vera Wang, Jean Georges at The Mark Hotel, Sant Ambroues and Christian Louboutin, whose successful tenancy at 955 Madison prompted an expansion and opening of a men’s store.
“It’s rare to find spaces of this size that can be used as flagship locations on Madison Avenue,” said Rosen. “The adjacency to the Met and strong co-tenancy make these smaller spaces highly desirable.”
