We learned last week that Balenciaga will be opening up a new store on 148 Mercer Street. Details are slowly starting to fill in, and the Observer reports that "the space is being dramatically modified from its current configuration to create what the brokers called a 'dramatic, open, column-free space.'" They're also saying that the store will occupy 6,769 square feet in two levels, though we had initially read from WWD that it would be 4,769 square feet. Fingers crossed for the extra room, packed full of Balenciaga. [Observer, Previously]
