(PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Portland-based real estate private equity firm ScanlanKemperBard Companies (SKB) and Wayzata Investment Partners (Wayzata), is pleased to announce that 42 Saint, a popular local men’s and women’s boutique, will be relocating to its development on High Street (http://www.HighStreetAZ.com) this month from its current location at Kierland Commons.
42 Saint will be opening in a 2,000 square-foot space on the north side of High Street between AZ Body Mechanics and Modern Margarita. The boutique features an eclectic mix of clothes from the catwalks to the sidewalks, everything from haute couture to tee shirts. From small designers to big, if it’s different, clients find it at 42 Saint.
“The opening of 42 Saint on High Street will be a welcome addition to our entertainment-driven destination,” added Leslie Himley, vice president of marketing for High Street. “Their collection of small, hard to find designers as well as the best mainstream designers will be well-received by our residents and office tenants as well as the surrounding community that frequents our popular restaurant and bar collection.”
42 Saint’s owners Jennifer & Mark Manion have owned the boutique for 15 years launching in the downtown Scottsdale’s art district and operating there for five years, then moving up to Kierland for the past 10, and now High Street. The boutique will be open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and noon to 6 pm. on Sunday in suite 109.
“We offer a unique shopping experience, we’re very much the neighborhood feel with amazing clothes and accessories, great tunes, and ice cold beverages on the house,” explained Mark Manion. “While fashion continually changes, Jennifer and I will always work to give the small designers the recognition they deserve while brining our loyal clientele the best product and lines from the big boys.”
“The announcement of 42 Saint follows the positive perception shift that has already occurred in eleven short months,” said Todd Gooding, president and principal of SKB. “This has always been an extraordinary real estate asset, created by a developer with a reputation for high caliber work. Our team, in conjunction with Jones Lang LaSalle and Southwest Retail Group has quickly elevated it to one of the most sought-after locations in Phoenix.”
Retail and Office leasing activity has picked up since ScanlanKemperBard Companies and Wayzata Investment Partners (The Ownership group) acquired High Street in April 2013.
New retail leases:
These five recently signed leases represent nearly 30,000 square feet on the ground level of the property and were brokered on behalf of the Ownership group by Southwest Retail Group.
Additionally, on September 3, Desert Ridge Pediatric Dentistry and Desert Ridge Prosthodontics opened offices on High Street representing 10,000 square feet. Mojo Yogurt also reopened in an 850 square foot space in October 2013.
New office leases, expansions and renewals include:
These three recently signed leases, representing more than 16,000 square feet of office space, are in addition to a 2,700 square foot expansion by Kennedy Partners, a renewal by Guttilla Murphy Anderson, P.C. on their 6,100 square foot space and a 12-month lease by Stealth Software on a 3,850 square foot space.
