Durst Party
Crowd at Durst Org Party at One Bryant Park
We also dropped by The Durst Org.’s One Bryant Park for a broker party to view the last big piece of retail left in the building. Durst leasing SVP Tom Bow tells us the second-floor 10k-SF space, which also includes 1.4k-SF on the ground floor, was designed with a restaurant in mind (although, they’ll consider other tenants). There’s certainly plenty of traffic—3.9M SF of tenants between the building and Durst’s neighboring 4 Times Square, Charlie Palmer’s Aureole restaurant below, and the 9k people who see Bye, Bye Birdie weekly at Henry Miller’s Theatre downstairs. It even has 25-foot high ceilings.
Okada International Corp.’s Naomi Okada, Valensi Realty’s Jack Valensi, and Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Joe Aquino
We snapped Okada International Corp.’s Naomi Okada, Valensi Realty’s Jack Valensi, and Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Joe Aquino. Joe and Faith Hope Consolo recently closed a deal for Kimaya, the leading fashion house of India, which is bringing a unique retail concept to 4.5k SF at 717 Madison. The Mumbai-based retailer will be featuring 110 designers in couture fashion, evening wear, bridal, jewelry and accessories in the multi-level boutique, which is housed in a townhouse situated between 63rd and 64th Sts. and neighbors like Chanel, Jimmy Choo, and Hermès.
