Dior has signed a lease for a 4,000-square-foot full-line store at The Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards, said Related Companies, which is developing the project with Oxford Property Group. Dior couldn’t be reached for comment.
The Shops and Restaurants, a key component of the new Hudson Yards neighborhood rising on Manhattan’s West Side, will be anchored by New York City’s first Neiman Marcus unit. Other retailers at The Shops will include AG Jeans by Adriano Goldschmied, Aritzia, Banana Republic, Coach, Lululemon and Stuart Weitzman. Zara and H&M will open large two-level units, the size of mini-anchors, and beauty will have a robust showing with brands such as The Body Shop, Kiehl’s, Jo Malone, MAC Cosmetics and Sephora. Dallas-based multibrand retailer Forty-five-ten said in February that it will unveil a 16,000-square-foot store at The Shops.
Previously signed luxury tenants include Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Piaget. Watches of Switzerland is planning to open its inaugural U.S. showroom. The Shops and Restaurants is about 80 percent leased ahead of its March 2019 opening.
When completed, Hudson Yards will include more than 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, over 100 stores, a collection of restaurants, 4,000 residences, a 750-seat public school, a 200-room Equinox hotel and 14 acres of public open space.
