According to a report in the Real Deal, Uniqlo is looking to move into Ann Taylor's space on 34th Street in Herald Square. Real Deal Japanese fast-fashion retailer plans to add a second location to its Soho flagship in the large, potentially two-story space.
If the report is true, the massive retailer would be undertaking some serious expansion plans in New York. Uniqlo has already signed the lease on a nearly 90,000-square foot space on Fifth Avenue (previously inhabited by Brooks Brothers), and while this space is significantly smaller (around 22,000 square feet), it would be the second outpost in an area with major foot traffic.
We've reached out to Uniqlo, but thus far, we have received no word on whether the rumors are true.
