Saks Fifth Avenue Rumored to Open Downtown

WWD reported that according to "sources" Saks Fifth Avenue is very close to signing a deal to open it's second New York City location. The store would be in lower Manhattan on Brookfield Place (formerly the World Financial Center), between Vesey Street and the Hudson River.

WWD also shared this quote, "Saks will anchor Brookfield Place, making it the undisputable luxury destination downtown," said the source.

Brookfield Place has already announced high end tenants like Ferragamo, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg and Hérmes. Adding a large luxury department store like Saks will make it the new, go-to shopping spot.

It was also revealed that Saks has plans to open a Saks Off 5th outlet at the Westfield World Trade Center, which is right near the downtown Century21. This will be the first time their discount store has come into any of the five boroughs!
