Bankrupt German label Escada was recently rescued from oblivion by an Indian steel mogul at the behest of his daughter-in-law, but the incoming Escada Sport in Soho clearly wasn't so lucky. Big Cushman Wakefield "sublease" signs have gone up in the windows there, although the listing has yet to appear on Cushman's site. The store had been under development since October of 2008; as recently as last July, architects were presenting their work plans to the local landmarks commission as if the site was set to move forward.
