Luxury shoe retailer opens first stand-alone store: RKF/Isaacs and Company.
RKF and Isaacs and Company arranged a new lease for Aquazzura at 935 Madison Avenue on the Upper East Side.
This will be the luxury shoe retailer's first standalone location in the United States.
RKF vice chairman Ariel Schuster, managing director Jackie Totolo and associate Brandon Elias, along with Isaacs and Company president Joel Isaacs and Joshua Lewin, arranged the transaction on behalf of the landlord, JZS Madison, LLC. Marc Simon of Isaacs and Company represented Aquazzura.
Aquazzura will occupy 2,221 s/f of retail space, with 1,144 s/f on the ground floor and 1,077 s/f in the lower level. The space features 17 feet of frontage on Madison Avenue, with the building's original 1876 facade, as well as 18 and 10 ft. ceilings.
Aquazzura will sit at the base of the former Whitney Townhouses, brownstones that have been completely redeveloped into luxury boutique condominiums, and directly next door to the new The Met Breuer.
Aquazzura will join French leather goods retailer Moynat, who recently announced its opening and will occupy the adjacent space. "We're thrilled that Aquazzura selected 935 Madison Avenue, as it's the perfect statement location for the brand's first U.S. store," said Schuster.
"Aquazzura will complement other luxury retailers in the area and contribute to the high-end co-tenancy we're seeking for these prime spaces on Madison Avenue."
RKF and Isaacs and Company continue to market an additional 9,123 s/f of ground floor and lower level retail space at 935 Madison Avenue.
