Resilient Retail in the Flatiron District

Yesterday, the Flatiron BID released its seventh annual Flatiron: Where Then Meets Now report. Subtitled "Resilient Retail in the Flatiron District," this year's report describes the vital statistics of the district in 2017 and highlights the strength of the district's retail sector. The report is among a suite of publications from the BID that focuses on the real estate market in the neighborhood.

“As this report clearly demonstrates, Flatiron is a dynamic neighborhood with an irresistible mix of commercial and residential sectors,” said Jennifer Brown, the Flatiron/23rd Street Partnership’s Executive Director. “We are excited to report that the retail landscape in the Flatiron District continues to thrive, and a wide variety of innovative retailers are continuing to set up shop in the neighborhood.”

The BID boundaries cover about 21.6 million square feet of commercial space and house approximately 4,200 commercial tenants and 570 ground-floor businesses. Flatiron's retail sector has continued to thrive over the past year. One sign of the neighborhood's continued growth is that retailers are increasingly deciding to make their New York City debut in Flatiron. In 2017, British lifestyle brand The White Company and kitchen and bath manufacturer KOHLER each opened flagship stores in the district.

Other retailers, seeking new ways to engage customers, have opened innovative concept stores in Flatiron, following the lead of neighborhood destination Eataly, a pioneer in experiential retail that opened in 2010. In late 2016 menswear brand Todd Snyder and Fujifilm's Wonder Photo Shop each opened experiential stores in the district.
