Jones Lang LaSalle has completed construction on two new high-end stores, totaling 153,000 square feet, for Uniqlo Co. Ltd. in Manhattan. The locations include the Japanese clothing retailer’s New York global flagship at 666 Fifth Avenue and another store at 31 West 34th Street. The Uniqlo Fifth Avenue store and the Uniqlo 34th Street site will be the second and third locations in the U.S. following the opening of Uniqlo on Broadway in Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood in 2006.
Jones Lang LaSalle’s Project and Development Services group was tapped by Uniqlo to serve as project manager for the construction of the two new Manhattan locations. The company’s responsibilities included project planning; design management; furniture, fixtures and equipment coordination; procurement management; and budget and schedule management. The PDS team also communicated regularly with the Tokyo-based owner and design team to explain all required consultant services and to closely manage project costs and schedules. BD+C
