Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH to Open in Tower57 in New York

NEW YORK, NY (November 17, 2015) -  Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH is pleased to announce it will open a new store in Tower57, located at 125 East 57th Street, in March 2016. The new 47,333 sq. ft. store will be the first Saks OFF 5TH to open in New York City.   

“Saks OFF 5TH delivers an exciting “thrill-of-the-hunt” environment to a millennial shopper demographic. The move into NYC marks a significant milestone for our brand and represents an exciting opportunity for us to bring the distinct OFF 5TH experience to the NY consumer,” stated Jonathan Greller.   

The new store will feature a lobby entrance at street level, which will access two lower level floors. The opening in Manhattan is part of OFF 5TH’s plans to open in high density/high traffic locations, and marks the second announced NYC-location for the banner. The company previously announced it will open an OFF 5TH at One Liberty Plaza in downtown Manhattan in 2017.   

Tower57 is a 32-story office tower best known for its spectacular curved façade and breathtaking entranceway. Designed by the architectural firm Kohn, Pederson, Fox, it was acquired by Mr. Charles Cohen in 1997. “The addition of a new Saks OFF 5TH store at this strategic location will be a dramatic game changer for 57th Street retail east of Park Avenue,” predicted Mr. Charles S. Cohen, President and CEO of Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation.   

“HBC has made huge strides on our strategy to grow our off-price business in the U.S., and has aggressive growth planned moving forward, including expansion beyond the United States. We have seen exponential demand as we continue to open new stores, which positions us well for continued growth moving forward,” added Greller.   

Brad Mendelson, Vice Chairman at Cushman & Wakefield represented Cohen Brothers Realty Corporation in the transaction.
