Since earlier this spring, the behemoth corner building at 63 Spring Street has been clothed in a shroud of leasing banners. The entire 6,600 square-foot property is up for grabs, and it’s rumored that Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian are planning to move into the space. A deal is reportedly in the works.
According to Scoopy’s report in The Villager this week:
The building’s bottom two floors will be a retail space while the top three floors will be office space for the Kardashian sisters’ businesses. JTRE wasn’t saying much about the deal, since things reportedly are still being finalized. However, Ariella Pitchon, who works next door at the Forever Flawless skin cosmetics shop, at least knew more about it than us. She said it was definitely a major scene when the sisters came by. Will Kim be involved? we asked. Naturally, Pitchon told us, since all the sisters are involved in these businesses together.
These crowded boundary waters between Soho and Little Italy are upscaling at quite a clip.
Their purported arrival comes at the expense of the beloved Lafayette Smoke Shop. The bodega/magazine shop was seemingly on borrowed time ever since Duane Reade muscled its way into the East River Savings Bank building across the street. Back in April, though, the store morphed and moved to the corner of Mulberry and Kenmare.

The bodega put up a strong fight, but was ultimately forced to move in April. It now has a new identity and location. Signs on the corner store previously urged customers to visit 62 Kenmare Street, now part of the “Iconic” newsstand endeavor (sister store to Bouwerie Iconic).
