As Lois Weiss of the New York Post reported, two big deals involving national retailers opening stores in the 34th Street District were nominated for the Real Estate Board of New York’s Most Ingenious Deal of the Year Award.

Andrew Goldberg, Eric Gelber, and Matt Chmielecki of CBRE were nominated for their role in the blockbuster signing of Urban Outfitters at 1333 Broadway, described as “A New Urban Outlook: Expanding the Boundaries of Herald Square.” The new lifestyle superstore is scheduled to open next month. Check in with Fashion Herald for more news on that big event.

Also nominated were Susan Kurland and Victoria Oliva of CBRE, “The Final Jewel in the Crown: The Rebirth of Herald Center and its Market-Changing Effects on 34th Street.” This deal began a new era for Herald Center, as international retail giant H&M announced plans to open a huge store at 1293 Broadway.

These deals will help transform the Herald Square area in a dramatic fashion. Urban Outfitters will pull Manhattan’s premier retail apparel district north, while the opening of H&M will help complete the powerful retail ring around the intersection of Broadway, 34th Street, and Sixth Avenue. H&M will join Macy’s Herald Square, Victoria’s Secret, and Gap to create a “100% corner” at the heart of the 34th Street District.
