Saks is on the move: Along with the Off Fifth outlet coming to One Liberty Plaza in 2017 and a full-blown Saks Fifth Avenue set for Brookfield Place next spring, the department store has "signed a letter of intent" to bring an outlet to Sunset Park, Commercial Observer reports.
It'd be located inside 30,000 square feet of the ground floor of the eight-story Liberty View Industrial Plaza, the same complex that Bed Bath & Beyond signed on for last year. "This site is a no-brainer for any well-researched retailer," Chase Welles of SCG Retail, which is marketing space at the adjacent Industry City, told the publication. "The high density, the solid incomes, the impressive education levels added to some of the highest traffic counts in the country equal a no-brainer."
It's not quite a done deal, however—multiple other national chains are reportedly also interested in the same space. Imagine: Picking up new shower curtains and scoring discounted designer merchandise in the same shopping trip—without having to go to Manhattan. We can dream.
