MaxMara Relocates Within Iconic Worth Avenue in Palm Beach

High-end Italian fashion retailer inks 2,000-square-foot lease at Ferragamo Building


PALM BEACH, March 31, 2015 —  JLL today announced that the firm has inked a 10-year lease with Italian luxury fashion retailer MaxMara to occupy approximately 2,000 square feet on Palm Beach’s iconic Worth Avenue. MaxMara will move a few doors down to 206 Worth Ave., commonly known as the Ferragamo building, a premier 15,036-square-foot, freestanding retail property. MaxMara’s new store will operate alongside premium high-street retailers such as Salvatore Ferragamo, Valentino and Van Cleef & Arpels.

JLL Vice President Scott Sheron and Vice Chairman of Retail Services New York Bob Gibson represented the landlord Ferragamo, and the tenant MaxMara self-represented in the transaction. MaxMara expects to open on or before the Worth Avenue high season kicks off on November 1, 2015.
“Worth Avenue is among the best shopping districts in the world, right up there with Fifth Avenue, The Avenue des Champs Elysees, Rodeo Drive and Bond Street, so MaxMara is a great fit with the existing super-luxury tenants in the building,” said Sheron. “As the South Florida economy improves, we expect premium level retailing to further expand in Palm Beach.”
