Luxury Women’s Apparel Brand Will Open at 71 Wooster Street in SoHo
NEW YORK – RKF, the country’s leading independent real estate firm specializing in retail leasing, investment sales and consulting services, announced today that it has arranged a 2,400-square-foot lease for Simone Rocha at 71 Wooster Street. This will be the eponymous brand’s first store in the U.S. and its second location worldwide.
RKF Executive Vice President Beth Rosen and Associate Emily Simmonds represented Simone Rocha in the transaction, while the landlord, OK Harris, Inc., was represented by Ripco’s Richard Skulnik.
Situated on the west block between Spring and Broome Streets, 71 Wooster Street is a six-story, 64,000-square-foot residential building built in 1900. The Simone Rocha store will occupy 2,400 square feet of retail space on the ground floor and boast a newly renovated storefront.
71 Wooster Street is ideally situated in the heart of SoHo, one of Manhattan’s strongest retail markets with both luxury and accessible retail offers, and among the City’s top tourist draws. Neighboring retailers include Céline, Moschino, Thakoon, Chanel, Balmain, Byredo and Etro.
“We are confident that Simone Rocha will resonate strongly with SoHo shoppers and residents,” said Rosen. “The brand’s collections have been on display at some of the most prestigious retail boutiques in the world, including Dover Street Market and Browns in London, as well as Colette in Paris and Ikram in Chicago. With the continued strength of SoHo and the establishment of Wooster Street as the new destination for luxury fashion brands, there is no question that Simone Rocha will succeed with its first move into the U.S.”
Simone Rocha will open at 71 Wooster Street in Spring 2017.
