The former location of disco department store Fiorucci’s is up for rent.
The Italian store, where Andy Warhol and Jackie Onassis shopped, was known for its graphics, music and window dancing. Fiorucci’s also launched the careers of multiple designers, including Betsey Johnson’s.
For the last nearly 15 years, Williams Sonoma and the Pottery Barn have occupied the 32,000-square-foot triplex 127 at E. 59th Street between Lexington and Park avenues. Jeffrey Roseman of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank Retail has the listing.
The asking rent is $400 per square foot for the ground floor, which is half of what rents are on the rest of Lexington Avenue. [NYP, 1st] – Claire Moses
