Two pieces of interesting news on the Urban Outfitters indie concept store, Space Ninety 8, that's headed for Williamsburg: It's slated to open in less than two months, and it looks like they got that liquor license approved. New York Magazine created the handy illustration above, mapping out exactly what will be on each floor.
There will be rotating pop-up shops on the basement level, starting with Adidas Blue. On the ground floor you'll find goods from local artists and designers like Dusen Dusen, along with the Urban Vintage renewal shop.
The second floor will be dedicated to womenswear, while the third will have men's clothing alongside the Gorbals eatery and that bar. Last but not least, there's an outdoor dining space on the roof, and a to-be-confirmed local flower market.
This concept store is not to be confused with the brand's lifestyle center, which should open sometime this year just north of Herald Square. Details on the "features never before seen from the brand" have yet to be unveiled, but we're eagerly anticipating its arrival.
