The Sundance Film Festival may have just ended, but Robert Redford is now making moves elsewhere. Sundance Holdings Group, the famed actor and director’s retail brand, has signed a 3,920-square-foot lease for a block of high-end retail space at 69-97 Main Street in Westport that used to house an Ann Taylor store, the Fairfield County Business Journal reported. Redford started the retail brand, which sells clothing, jewelry, accessories and home decor, as a general store in Utah back in 1969, according to its website. (The Sundance Film Festival is a program put on by the Park City, Utah-based Sundance Institute, a registered nonprofit.) Thomas Durels, an executive vice president of real estate at Empire State Realty Trust, which owns the Westport property, said in a statement that the space is “the best retail location on Westport’s Main Street.” Durels added that Redford’s retail brand “will have great visibility, the best central location and easy access to public parking for their customers.” [FBJ]
