International retail giant Urban Outfitters has signed a lease for 56,730 s/f on three levels at W&H Properties’ 1333 Broadway, where it will create a new “lifestyle center” with new features never before seen from the brand.
Anthony Malkin, president of Malkin Holdings, which supervises the W&H Properties portfolio, announced that the retailer will take occupancy in September.
“This store will be a huge catalyst for this retail and office neighborhood extending north of Herald Square,” said Malkin.
“The area has seen transformational changes over the past few years, as Broadway with its pedestrian arcades links Herald Square to Times Square, and Urban Outfitters will be a magnet for shoppers.”
Wade McDevitt and Keith Fencl of The McDevitt Company represented Urban Outfitters in the lease negotiations. Andrew Goldberg and Matt Chmielecki of CBRE represented the landlord.
Attorneys involved in the transaction included Harry Cherken and Lisa Sher of Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP and David Bleckner of David J. Bleckner, P.C.
