1) FiDi: The cavernous site you see pictured above will soon be filled with glittery baubles and the besuited Wall Streeters that can afford them. Yes, that's a photo of Tiffany & Co., soon to open at 37 Wall Street between Broad and William Streets. Those high ceilings and elegant columns sure look promising. [Racked Inbox]
2) Soho: We've been slavering over the news that Japanese retailer Muji is coming to the new New York Times building for months, as this city is in dire need of more well-designed, affordable furniture (no, DWR does not count). And now, Crain's has gotta go and blow our minds with an article stating that the chain is also opening an outpost in Soho! It'll be planted at 455 Broadway between Grand and Howard Streets in the space that had housed Iceberg Army Navy (which just moved across the street to 452 Broadway). The store, "slated to open by late fall, will sell housewares designed in Muji’s signature clean style as well as clothing and office supplies." The uptown location is supposed to open this fall as well. Just another reason, aside from our hatred of mosquito bites and sweating, why summer cannot end soon enough. [Crain's]
