Duncan Quinn Relocating to Kenmare After 10 Years on Spring Street

For about a year, the revamped facade of 70-78 Kenmare Street has been sitting all by its lonesome. A sun-stroked poster advertising a Myspace-named real estate company helped plug the large mid-block footprint. Now it’s got some friends. All along our money was on some upscale boutique type occupant to occupy at least one of the four new retail units. And that’s precisely what happened.

Duncan Quinn ditched its ten-year HQ at 8 Spring Street in favor of a Kenmare flagship. The custom menswear joint vacated the premises last month and is in limbo until the new space debuts. As before, the eponymous proprietor is selling expensive locally produced suits, silk ties, and other formal accessories.

Meanwhile, the Nolita Group real estate company just opened a new office right next door to Duncan Quinn.

Two down, two to go.
