The Post reports that they've spotted signs of Miami's ultimate shopping destination, The Webster, in Soho. The store's flamingo logo at 29 Greene Street is their tip off, though nothing has been confirmed by The Webster nor the current broker.
The location in question lends nearly 4,000 square feet—not bad by New York standards, but a significant downsize from the 20,000 square foot space The Webster occupies in Miami. The Soho building can accomodate two to three floors of retail space as well as roof deck. It was built in the 1920's, which seems like a perfect fit for The Webster as their Miami location boasts Art Deco styling, a signature of the era.
The Webster Miami participated in The Shops at Target last year with Kirna Zabête, who also announced an expansion to their retail empire this week. It's good to see that some of the boutiques that partnered with Target are reaping the benefits, while others, like The Curiosity Shoppe in San Francisco, haven't fared so well.
