With its sleek all-white interiors and dramatic glass-steel storefront, Lord & Taylor’s store at Westchester’s Ridge Hill, Yonkers, N.Y., is its most contemporary to date.
The 80,000-sq.-ft., two-level space, designed in partnership with Giorgio Borruso Design, Marina del Ray, Calif., has a spacious, ultra-modern feel. Streamlined fixtures and large white tiles are featured throughout the store, which utilizes an asymmetrical racetrack aisle for navigation. Angled lighting fixtures in the fitting rooms and the use of floor plates at the foot of the mannequins (to identify outfits) enhance the modern theme.
The Ridge Hill location is Lord & Taylor’s eleventh store in the state of New York and its second full-line store to open this year. The retailer, owned by Canada’s Hudson Bay Co. is due to open a store at Mizner Park, Boca Raton, Fla., later this year, bringing its total number of full-priced stores to 50.
Westchester’s Ridge Hill, a Forest City Enterprise property, opened in October 2011. It is the largest mixed-use outdoor shopping center in the New York metropolitan area.
