Sierra in the News

Journalist Adrianne Pasquarelli in Crain's New York business reports that high-end Italian menswear retailer Tincati is making its U.S. debut in the Big Apple. The Milan based company recently signed a 14-year lease at 20 E. 63rd St., between Fifth and Madison avenues. The lease includes all 6,000 square feet of retail space in the five-story townhouse, nearly 1,100 square feet of which are on the ground floor. Asking rent, including taxes, was $800,000 a year. That price translates to a blended rent of $133 per square foot for the building.
