Another clothing retailer is in talks to lease the 4 Times Square store Express recently ditched for space four blocks to the north. The New York Post reported that H&M is negotiating to take the entire 45,000-square-foot three-level store at 42nd Street and Broadway.

“We are in discussions with H&M, but in this business it ain’t over till it’s over,” Jordan Barowitz of the Durst Organization, which owns the property, told the Post.

Just last week, Durst tapped Amira Yunis and Gary Trock of CBRE Group to take over marketing duties for the retail property, which last housed an ESPN Zone, from an in-house team.

Express was in talks for the space before SL Green Realty and Jeff Sutton lured them to their retail assemblage at 1552 Broadway. [Post]
