There's only a couple months to go until the first Brookfield Place shops open, but the shopping center's full roster is still being revealed. A Tribeca Citizen tipster noticed signage for Bottega Veneta here, a store that hadn't previously been announced in major publications—and by signage, we mean a piece of computer paper taped to the construction facade that reads "Bottega Veneta," not like Tory Burch's orange-swathed storefront.
Perhaps Bottega was too busy securing its new Madison Avenue home, which will cost them a cool $8 million in annual rent, to publicize their downtown location.
The tipster also gave the local blog a quick rundown of the layout: "Hermès and Davidoff are in the corridor next to Rite Aid. Aspinal is upstairs next to Financier, which has just gotten some new flooring next to it that looks like there will be a mini-indoor-patio, maybe some tables/chairs? Bottega Veneta is behind the staircase on the north side. Burberry is in the Winter Garden between Tory Burch and Ferragamo."
Be on the lookout for stores to open here beginning in March.
