Global commercial real estate advisory firm Newmark Knight Frank (NKF) is pleased to announce that it has executed a lease for growing Vancouver-based menswear retailer Indochino to bring one of its new showrooms to 343 Greenwich Avenue in Greenwich, CT. NKF’s James Ritman, executive vice president and managing director, and Janey Steinmetz, associate director, represented the building owner, RLB Holdings, LLC in securing this lease.
The NKF team arranged for Indochino, represented by Bialow Real Estate’s Corey Bialow and Andrew Jaffe, to lease 1,700 SF of retail space in the three-story, 4,700 SF boutique building. The space, formerly occupied by upscale-casual womenswear store Splendid, will open as an Indochino showroom this May.
“The Avenue has a reputation for being one of the Nation’s best known shopping streets, where high-end retail tenants historically attract luxury shoppers, both locally and from afar,” said Ritman. “This building sits on one of the heaviest foot-traffic blocks of Greenwich Avenue, making it a particularly desirable location for a nationally expanding retailer like Indoctrination. Greenwich Avenue will see increased lease activity in the coming years, as retailers transitioning from digital-only to omnichannel continue to seek out brick-and-mortar space from which they can better serve their existing customers in the area, and acquire and attract new ones.”
Indochino, which began as an e-commerce made-to-measure menswear brand in 2007, has since evolved into an onmichannel retailer that operates showrooms across the nation. Showrooms are smaller-scale stores that offer customers the in-person experience of creating a personalized garment or wardrobe. The company’s Greenwich location is one of six showrooms Indochino will open in the Northeast this year.
