NEW YORK — The new home of Club Monaco’s flagship is 37 West 57th Street, but it might be just a stopover while the chain searches for more permanent digs.
The site was the former home of the defunct chain Cosmetics Plus. As reported, the Club Monaco flagship was housed in the St. Regis Hotel at 699 Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, but the site was sold to Boucheron, a unit of Gucci Group.
Faith Hope Consolo of Garrick-Aug Associates represented the landlord in the transaction. According to Consolo, Club Monaco is set to open the doors to its new home "in the next couple of days."
Club Monaco officials declined comment.
The new space totals 3,500 square feet comprising three levels, ground, mezzanine and basement. At the St. Regis, Club Monaco occupied 12,000 square feet, but that also included two floors of office space, Consolo said.
While retail rents begin at $750 a square foot along Fifth Avenue and run higher for the best locations, the amounts along West 57th Street plateau at between $200 and $250 a square foot, the broker added.
"We’ll see how it works out. Club Monaco, like Gucci and Burberry, signed a short-term lease for a year," Consolo reported.
Gucci had occupied 12 West 57th Street, the former Henri Bendel location, while its Fifth Avenue flagship was undergoing renovations. The same site is now host to Burberry, while its store on East 57th Street is being renovated. Burberry is expected to remain at the 12 West 57th Street location until Spring 2003.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
