Counting only a single Manhattan location for over 20 years, Lower Manhattan’s crown shopping jewel Century 21, is set to expand to a second location on Manhattan island and it’s not in our area.
After Barnes and Noble has announced vacating their Lincoln Center location, Century 21 is moving into the 21,000 square foot space at 1972 Broadway.
Adding a second location of the tourist friendly department store might be able to ease foot traffic in our area. This translates into more shoes and clothes for Lower Manhattan residents!
Century 21 has 5 other locations in New Jersey, Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens.
According to a report in Crains New York Business, â€œWe have been searching for a tenant who has the ability to drive a large volume of shoppers to the area,â€ said Mario Palumbo, a partner at Millennium Partners, which owns the space, in a statement. â€œWe believe that having Century 21 as an anchor in Lincoln Square will help drive a level of pedestrian traffic that our other retail tenants will benefit from.â€
