It’s official. Urban Outfitters signed a ten-year lease with EASSA Properties LLP and plans to open by November 1, according to Roxanne Register, CBRE’s Vice President of Retail, who represented EASSA.
Urban Outfitters' new store location will be at 306 E. Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach. With 10,954 square feet on two floors, the company will redo the interiors as well as the façade keeping some of the architectural features, Register said.
“The word has been out on the street, and other owners I’ve talked to want a good mix of national and local retailers here. It’s good for the street and supports the restaurants.
“You’ll see a big change going forward,” she adds. “There will be more national retailers coming in. Urban Outfitters has been a catalyst in the past for that trend, and it will also be a frontrunner for Atlantic Avenue.”
Urban Outfitters is an edgy apparel retailer carrying preppy attire. In South Florida they have stores in Palm Beach Gardens, Miami and Miami Beach.
