Just some additional information on the retail space in this article below that was sent to me by a neighbor of mine who's always very much on top of such things. I'm happy that it's not just the same retailers being copy/pasted in several developments over and over again.So…walked by here and did some sleuthing. Nearly, every retail space looked to have some build-out ongoing. In one window, I managed to find a floor plan with some logos on it (poor quality pic attached). I also found at least one posted building permit. Here is what I was able to make out: Alo Yoga Studio; Puttshack, which looks to be an “adult” mini golf course, Todd Snyder, some sort of upscale fashion outlet and “Vince.” So more retail is definitely coming.
The two-level, 125,000-square-foot Superette, designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox, occupies the first two levels of the three towers that make up the Echelon luxury residences, and will contain more than 40 retail tenants including a few restaurants situated around the perimeter of a rectangle courtyard with umbrella-shaded bistro tables and seating. The Superette is scheduled to open spring 2022, though no precise date has been set yet.
Among the leases signed are Le Labo, Daniel Cremieux, Lucid, Lunya, Vince, Framebridge, Mack Weldon, Injeanius, Rag & Bone, The Garret Bars, Todd Snyder, LimeRed Teahouse, Puttshack and Scotch & Soda, and many more are expected to follow. “We are under negotiation for every space,” said David. “A few spaces are still up in the air,” she said.
Superette’s central courtyard will be “activated” with art exhibits, performances, fitness classes, book clubs, lectures and other events. “The ability to have this common space is really a canvas to paint all these activations. We have a dedicated marketing team of 10 people in the Seaport focused on activations.”
