Ridgefield, Conn. — Spanish fast-fashion retail giant Zara has chosen Schimenti Construction Co. to build its new flagship at 666 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The 39,000-sq.-ft. store is located in the former home of the NBA Store.

In addition to the two above ground sales floors, the store features a 20,000-sq.-ft. lower-level sales floor.

The first phase is of the project expected to be completed in September. The second phase (interior and exterior construction) to be completed in early 2012.

The second phase will include a new facade with extensive glazing, a precast stone structure, and extra large windows will be constructed during this phase giving the store an exciting exterior. New elevators and escalators will also be installed during the second phase.
