RKF Helps Women’s Fashion Retailer Incorporate Clicks with Bricks at 17 Bleecker Street
NEW YORK CITY – RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, announced today that it has secured the first brick-and-mortar location for Hatch, an online retailer specializing in women’s fashion and pregnancy apparel, at 17 Bleecker Street in NoHo. The new 2,000-square-foot store opened today.
RKF Executive Vice President Beth Rosen, Senior Managing Director Marc Finkel and Associate Pierce Thompson represented Hatch in the transaction.
Located on the north block between Lafayette Street and Bowery, 17 Bleecker Street is a charming prewar building built in 1920, ideally situated just steps from many of the neighborhood’s cafes, boutiques and hotels. Hatch’s new space includes 1,000 square feet on the ground floor and 1,000 square feet on the lower level.
“Hatch was drawn to Bleecker Street because it fits the neighborhood aesthetic—and will benefit from its appealing retail neighbors as well as robust traffic from both residents and visitors,” explained Finkel. “With its very special clothing and accessories for women, including novelty items for expecting moms, we’re confident Hatch will find shoppers who already love the area and those just discovering it.”
