Kenneth Cole readies new storefront on the Bowery
Workers yesterday were stocking 328 Bowery, where a Kenneth Cole is opening in the days ahead here at Bond.
In reporting on the lease back in June, the Commercial Observer noted that the 10-year deal is for 2,510 square feet on the ground level and 1,604 square feet in the basement. The asking rent for is $300 per square foot. (Cole will be sharing the space with women’s clothing shop Curve, per the Observer.)
Now let's just cut and paste some from an EVG post from May 2013:
The storefront on the southwest corner of Bond and the Bowery has sat empty since the Washington Mutual closed up in March 2009 ... the space has gone though an assortment of brokers...
Previously, the space was "the new intersection of cool."
It was also a photogenic intersection for Bringing it On...
And most recently — a pitstop for Claire Forlani's disembodied scotch ad hands...
The listing from RKF that yielded Kenneth Cole arrived in May 2013.
And serious last call for our Bowery-Bond nickname to take off — BowBo.

In honor of the arrivial of Kenneth Cole on the Bowery, this corner will now be known as the new intersection of Uncool and Overpriced.
Do people still buy Kenneth Cole? One of the most overpriced garbage brands on the market.
Cool, now I won't have to travel so far uptown for shoes. The kind of shoes that last a long time and don't require repairs.
Pardon me while I vom.
Agh Kenneth Cole, so over and so uncool
Does that pile of cheerleaders really make you want to buy an over-priced item made by slave labor????
Are you referring to the device you used to post this comment or the clothes you are wearing? #Hypocrisy
I haven't purchased anything from Kenneth Cole since 2001. Enough said.
Oh yay - more bland glass and nothing storefrontage... What CRAP!
On a side note - he did have some good quality merch in the very early 2000s. WHen I went back a few years later - wow... JUNK. Too bad - he's a nice guy to chat with. But that doesn't sell product. Glad I have one or two unique items of his (like a business card carrier that is actually a miniature leather briefcase with working latches and handle).
