New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Bringing yet another luxury children's wear brand to Madison Avenue and, concurrently, completing another turnaround of a Madison Avenue block front, the leasing and sales team of Faith Hope Consolo, Chairman, and Joseph A. Aquino, Executive Vice President of Prudential Douglas Elliman's Retail Group, has arranged the American debut of Caramel Baby & Child at 1244 Madison Avenue, between 89th and 90th Streets. The stylish label, which currently has stores in London and Tokyo, specializes in clothing for babies through toddlers, using such sumptuous fabrics as cashmere from Scotland and an array of superfine cottons. The newest location is on a corridor that is regarded as a center for luxury children's clothing, and home to such prominent neighbors as Armani Jr., Jacadi, Baby Cottons, J. Crew Cuts, Pink Chicken, Brooks Brothers Children and Rachel Riley.
"We are considered leaders in recreating and enhancing retail landscapes, arranging the best possible choices for retailers," said Ms. Consolo. "There is a strong demand for luxury children's clothing in this particular neighborhood, which is affluent, family-oriented and in close proximity to select private and public schools and major museums."
Adds Mr. Aquino, "Faith and I have been responsible for leasing many children's brands on the Upper East Side, as well as totally repositioning the block-fronts. We understand luxury brands and the value they bring to a property."
Ms. Consolo and Mr. Aquino represented the landlord in the transaction. The tenant was represented by Judson Realty, LLC.
