Rumors that Gucci had been looking for a space in downtown can now be put to rest. As of recently, it has been confirmed that the luxury fashion brand will indeed be moving into an office space at 195 Broadway at Fulton Street.
While it was widely known that Gucci had been searching for office space in the Financial District, it was unclear of where they would settle. Gucci is currently negotiating for 80,000 square feet over two stories at the new space, according to the Commercial Observer.
195 Broadway will also be the new home to the widely known and popular restaurant, Nobu, owned by legendary actor (and downtown resident!) Robert DeNiro, Drew Nierporent and chef Nobu Matsuhisa. The restaurant is relocating from its current location in Tribeca after signing a 15-year lease for the 14,384-square-foot space on the ground floor and lower level.
Gucci will be relocating from its current 685 Fifth Avenue location.
