[IMGCAP(1)]WHITE PLAINS-Nordstrom Rack, a discount division of Seattle-based fashion specialty retailer Nordstrom Inc., has signed a lease at the City Center Shopping Center here. The 35,000-sf store is scheduled to open in the fall of this year.

The new location will complement Nordstrom’s full-line store at The Westchester mall in White Plains. The only other Nordstrom Rack location in New York State is at the Mall at the Source in Hempstead on Long Island.

[IMGCAP(2)]“City Center is a compelling destination with a great mix of retail, restaurants and entertainment, and we’re excited to be a part of it,” says Scott Meden, president of Nordstrom Rack. “We’re eager to open our doors and we hope that this new store will make shopping more convenient for customers in and around White Plains.”

The $350-million City Center, a residential-retail-entertainment complex, totals 1.1 million sf and was opened in Oct. 2003. The complex, developed and owned by Cappelli Enterprises of Valhalla, NY, features 400,000 sf of retail, which includes Barnes & Noble, Circuit City, Filene’s Basement, Target and New York Sports Club.

“We are extremely pleased to have Nordstrom Rack become a key component in City Center’s retail community,” says Louis Cappelli, president of Cappelli Enterprises. “Nordstrom is a prestigious name in the world of fashion retailing. The Rack fits perfectly within our mix of tenants that includes very strong fashion retailers such as Filene’s Basement, as well as numerous other top-end retailers such as Target and Barnes & Noble. City Center plays an important role in the overall retail success of Downtown White Plains. Having Nordstrom Rack join our tenant roster brings even greater strength to our center and the city as a whole.”

Across the Tappan Zee Bridge in Rockland County, HomeGoods has signed a 25,077-sf lease at the 263,927-sf Rockland Center on Route 59 in Nanuet. Metro Commercial Real Estate Inc.’s Ira Kerner and Jeff Lagowitz represented the property owner American Continental Properties of New York City in the deal. Bill Hesse of Aries Deitch & Endelson Inc. of Hartsdale represented HomeGoods in the transaction. Metro Commercial’s Kerner says HomeGoods is expected to move into the former Office Depot box space by sometime this summer. Office Depot vacated that space but moved to another location at the Rockland Center complex. HomeGood’s lease has a 10-year term with some renewal options.

“HomeGoods will be a welcome addition to Nanuet and the Rockland Center,” Kerner says. “We expect them to do very well here.” HomeGoods will join other major tenants: AC Moore, PetSmart, Office Depot and Pathmark at the property. There is currently 18,000 sf available for lease, including more than 7,000 sf at the former Office Depot box space that will now be home to HomeGoods.
