Louis Vuitton is getting ready to expand its location on Fifth Avenue and 57th Street.
The French fashion house filed permits to build a new structure at 743 Fifth Avenue, immediately adjacent to the high-end retailer’s flagship at 1 East 57th Street. LVMH acquired the skinny building in 2007 for $60 million.
The floor area at 743 Fifth Avenue is 1,580 square feet. The proposed one-story expansion will be 85 feet tall — typically the height of an eight-story building — according to New York YIMBY.
The original structure at the location has already been demolished. [NY YIMBY] — Claire Moses
