  • 503-511 Broadway

    The Spanish conglomerate Inditex Group and parent company to clothing retailer Zara, is preparing to grab a piece of prime Soho commercial space in a $250 million deal, according to the New York Post. The property, which is located at 503-511 Broadway between Broome and Spring streets, is currently leased by Old Navy, who has rented the ground floor through January 2018.

    Sources told the Post that the deal could encompass three 25,000-square-foot floors — including Old Navy’s ground floor space, whose rent will reach the under-the-market rate of $104 per square foot next year. The deal could also include the lower level, which had been rented to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Annex at one time, and the vacant second floor, which is sometimes used for fashion events. [more]

  • In one of the city’s largest-ever retail condominium deals, Spain’s Inditex Group has agreed to pay $324 million to purchase 32,000 square feet at 666 Fifth Avenue for a new flagship Zara store, the company announced today. The space, formerly an NBA store, is roughly one-third of the 90,000 square feet purchased by Stanley Chera’s Crown Acquisitions, the Carlyle Group and Kushner Companies for $525 million in 2008, according to the Wall Street Journal, which originally broke the news of the deal. The rest, which is currently leased by Uniqlo and Hollister, is also on the market. The purchase price for the Zara space includes the buyout of the remaining time on the NBA’s lease, which sources said had less than three years before its expiration. Uniqlo’s lease at 666 Fifth last year, in which it agreed to pay $300 million over 15 years, was among the city’s most expensive retail leases ever. [WSJ]
