Issey Miyake Boutique will Eventually Open on Kenmare Street [Updated]
That so-called jewel box development at Elizabeth and Kenmare Streets is a sore site for these eyes. With the mess of construction materials long-gone, the hulking concrete mass feels somewhat like a prison complex.
And into this condo compound, a trendy international retailer on the ground level. Eye-grabbing teaser signage for Issey Miyake has been in place for months, even though the store was first announced almost two years ago. Expect a similar experience as the Tribeca flagship on Hudson Street.
UPDATE: we are told by the corporate office that this location is no longer happening.
As for upstairs, this new iteration of 152 Elizabeth sits 83 feet tall and consists of seven apartment units totaling 27,090 square-feet. The penthouse has its own private roofdeck access. Unaffordability is the word here. Seriously. Residences come in two flavors – full floor and half-floor. Pricing started at $6 million and topped out at around $35 million.
