New York City — Winick Realty Group said that TJ Maxx has leased its first Wall Street location, in the heart of New York City’s Financial District.
The 32,000-sq.-ft. store, which spans two lower levels at 14 Wall Street on the corner of Broad Street, is slated to open in October.
“This space had never been used for retail before,” said Darrell Rubens, senior managing director at Winick Realty Group LLC, making TJ Maxx the first national brand retailer to move into the heart of FiDi. “I believe that other national tenants will follow TJ Maxx’s lead and begin to see that FiDi is a viable market for them,” added Rubens.
