NEW YORK CITY-Filene’s Basement is taking over 22,700 square feet of retail space formerly occupied by Circuit City, in a 12-year lease that will nearly double its Upper West Side footprint along Broadway between 79th and 80th streets. The new space, at 2234 Broadway, is adjacent to its existing 32,000-square-foot location at 2220 Broadway.

The 2220 Broadway location, which the retailer has occupied since 1993, “is among Filene’s Basement’s most popular and successful in the New York region,” says Cushman & Wakefield’s EVP of retail services, Robert Gibson, in a release. “Under new ownership, the brand is in growth mode and this represented the right opportunity at the right time.” Filene’s was acquired last year by Syms Corp.

C&W says Syms plans to keep both stores, using the 2234 Broadway space to expand the offerings now available at 2220 Broadway, which was the first Filene’s location in Manhattan. Additionally, the new store will house a Syms Tailored & Tux location, reportedly the first of its kind in New York. The new store is scheduled to open this summer.
