A Marshalls for Hell Square on the Lower East Side

Posted on: August 27th, 2018 at 5:11 am by

As Ben Shaoul’s block-spanning condoplex at the corner of Orchard and East Houston comes into full view, so too are its commercial occupants. We first reported back in May that TJX – the parent company of T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods – was planning to open a new T.J. Maxx department store here. Plans apparently changed a bit.

EV Grieve followed up our story, and now reports that Marshalls will instead occupy the ground-floor storefront along the East Houston corridor. The location, its seventh in Manhattan (197 East Houston), is slated to debut on September 27. Here’s a shot from their website announcing same.

As previously reported, much of the remaining commecial space in the upper-crust building is earmarked for the flagship Equinox (i.e. 30,000 square-feet over three floors). Up above, there are 94 apartments ranging in price from $1.07 million to $5.99 million.

Nothing really says Lower East Side cool like a Marshalls…
