Seattle -- Nordstrom said it plans to open a Nordstrom Rack at 505 Fulton Street in Brooklyn, N.Y. The approximately 41,000-sq.-ft. store is scheduled to open in spring 2014. The developer for the project is United American Land LLC.
The store will feature a unique design that will blend the architecture of the site — the landmark Offerman building — with the contemporary style of an adjacent, newly built structure. The single-level store will occupy the second floor retail space.
"We want to be in the top locations across the country, so this spot at the heart of downtown Brooklyn is big for us," said Geevy Thomas, president of Nordstrom Rack. "We are thrilled to become a part of this exciting community at a historic location, and we intend to make the most of the opportunity to serve customers and give them a reason to shop the Rack."
In related news, Nordstrom said it will open a Nordstrom at Shops at Orchard Place in Skokie, Ill. The approximately 36,000-sq.-ft. store is scheduled to open in spring 2014. Shops at Orchard Place is owned and managed by Inland Real Estate Corp.
