Mount Laurel, NJ – October 10, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — On Walnut Street’s “Rittenhouse Row,” Metro Commercial Real Estate brings to Philadelphia an exciting, new-to-the-area, international retailer, Jack Wills. They have leased the entire 5,800 SF 1617 Walnut Street Building.
Known for its “fabulously British goods for the university crowd,” for both men and women, Jack Wills completed an extensive and high-detailed renovation to this prominent building on Center City’s main shopping street.
This location will be only the 4th in the U.S., and is a coup for Philadelphia, with the merchant opening on Walnut Street before it opens in New York, Washington or Chicago.
The property owner was represented by Metro Commercial’s Steven H. Gartner and Michael Gorman in a space formerly occupied by Jennifer Convertibles.
