[Retail space at Jade by Femia, 06/01/2008]
Exciting news for fans of the minimalist look: Racked sources whisper that there's a third Muji coming to Jade, the crazy pod-laden condo building designed by Jade Jagger on 19th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. Says one tipster: "It's 5,000 sq ft plus a big downstairs level. Should be open in mid-December, in time to fill Christmas stockings with brandless necessities." Ages ago we heard the third outpost would be in Grand Central, which might actually make more sense—19th Street can be a little on the quiet side. Muji reps say they can't confirm anything at the moment, but at least we know the store will definitely come to JFK this fall.
