CBRE’s Chicago office recently represented Notre in a 1,751-square-foot pop-up lease at the Waldorf Astoria at 11 E. Walton Street in Chicago. CBRE’s Phil Golding, Todd Siegel and Kim Wiskup represented Notre in the lease.
Founded by Michael Jaworowski, Jose Villanueva, Andrew Nordstrom and Charlie Nordstrom, the Chicago-based men’s boutique stocks exclusive sneaker, streetwear and fashion collections from popular labels and designers. The pop-up will be in place through December of this year.
“By entering Chicago’s premier high-street retail market in the Gold Coast, this move shows the strength that the Notre brand has developed” said Golding. “With this store, Notre will be able to gain more exposure to a new customer base and continue its development as one of Chicago’s premiere boutique retailers.”
Notre, which has very large online component and customer base, is also expanding its flagship Chicago store at 118 N. Peoria Street in the West Loop to 4,500 square feet. Currently, the firm occupies 1,800 square feet, but will be more than doubling its space. Notre is working with Norman Kelly Architecture and Oslo Builders on the store, which will open in late 2018.
“It’s been a great year for our brand, with the launch or our own label, the expansion of our West Loop store and our introduction into the Gold Coast,” said Notre’s Jaworowski. “The momentum we will bring into next year will be substantial and will help position the company for even more growth.”
