Nolita is getting an Issey Miyake store on the base of 152 Elizabeth St. on the nook of Kenmare Avenue.
The two,224-square-foot store makes good sense for the Japanese style mogul because the constructing was designed by fellow countryman, pal and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando, as his first within the US.
Genaro Otero and Yair Staav of MHP Actual Property Providers represented the tenant on this third US outpost — all in New York. Miyake’s Pleats Please is open at 126 Prince St. whereas his Tribeca flagship with interiors designed by one other Pritzker winner, Frank Gehry, is at 119 Hudson St.
Pierce Thompson of RKF represented builders Sumaida + Khurana, which had an asking lease of $225 per sq. foot.
Co-founder Amit Khurana says the retail house will open in a number of months. “Miyake-san and Ando-san designed 2121, a museum exhibition gallery idea collectively and the company workplaces for Miyake,” Khurana mentioned.
“This mission is about these sorts of shared collaboration and imaginative and prescient.
“[Miyake] was trying to do one thing particular and needed to create one thing contemporary and had an actual type of imaginative and prescient,” Khurana added. “This constructing spoke to them.”
