Times Square TRU

The Commercial Observer reports that Toys “R” Us is leaving their flagship location in New York’s Times Square. You have until February 2016 to visit the location. Here’s a snippet from the story:

“Toys R Us decided not to renew its lease for the giant toy retailer’s 110,000-square-foot flagship store in the Times Square area, Commercial Observer has learned. And it may be moving to a retail space in the neighborhood.

“They did not exercise the option to renew,” said Brad Mendelson of Cushman & Wakefield, who is marketing Toys R Us’ space at 1514 Broadway between West 44th and West 45th Streets on behalf of landlord Charles Moss. “Here’s the long and the short of it. They have 21,000 square feet [on the ground floor]. There really is not a tenant that can rent that. The market has just escalated so.”
