There’s a bit of shuffling happening on Larchmont – unfortunately, life on the Boulevard right now can be a bit of survival of the fittest. As happens everywhere, when leases come up they get re-negotiated at current market prices. And right now, the demand for space is high – Larchmont is more popular than ever.
Larchmont Buzz will focus attention on Larchmont Boulevard’s open spaces…what’s up on Larchmont?
Three Spaces – Varying States of Change
238 North Larchmont – formerly Sonya Ooten (jewelry). This space is currently under construction – it’s being built out for new tenant (Malin+Goetz) – a family owned apothecary and lab that was launched in NYC’s Chelsea district in 2004. The Malin+Goetz products can be found in stores across the US – including Barney’s, Fred Segal, Bloomingdale’s – and our own beloved Larchmont Beauty! (It’s our understanding that Fred at Larchmont Beauty gave his seal of approval to their coming on to the Boulevard with a stand alone shop – Malin+Goetz is just one of many skin care products Larchmont Beauty carries. Very cool!)
236 North Larchmont – formerly Pinkberry. BabyCakes Vegan Bakery opened on Larchmont on December 30th. This is the second LA location for the New York City based bakery. BabyCakes offers all-natural, organic and delicious alternatives free from the common allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and eggs.
234 North Larchmont – formerly Larchmont Village Florist. This space is currently available – but should be leased soon as several potential tenants have surfaced. The space is 900 square feet and the lease rate is in the $7 per square foot range. Check back for more information when we have it.
Larchmont Village Florist – New Location!
The final piece to this puzzle is the Larchmont Village Florist move…with the new year, comes a new location for this popular flower shop. They have moved to 420 North Larchmont Boulevard – a half a block north of Beverly Boulevard on the east side of the street. Do stop by! Parking isn’t so bad at that location so it should be easy access.
The space was formerly occupied by Great Earth Vitamin Company…they decided to close up shop.
