Following in the footsteps of neighbor Uniqlo, Spanish fast apparel retailer Zara has opened its largest store in the U.S. at 666 Fifth Avenue in New York City. The three-level store contains 32,291 sq. ft. of space and features five display windows and a façade spanning more than 75 feet.
Inside, the store contains two “catwalk” corridors on each floor that lead to boutique-like cubes showcasing specific clothes collections. What’s more, Zara’s new flagship comes with a number of environmentally sustainable features, including motion detectors that dim the lights when there are no people around, electronically-regulated air curtains near store entrances and an energy-efficient heating and air conditioning system.
Going forward, Zara plans to use 666 Fifth Avenue as the standard for its new stores worldwide.
