Marx Realty, a New York-based owner, developer and manager of office, retail and multifamily property across the United States, announced that Rihanna will be bringing her Savage X Fenty product line to 3,275 square feet of space at Cross County Center in Yonkers, New York, its first in the metropolitan, area in 2023.

“The Savage X Fenty brand has disrupted the lingerie sector and we are excited that Cross County Center has been selected for the company’s flagship location in New York,” said Craig Deitelzweig, Marx Realty president and CEO. “The brand adds a fresh pop-culture vibe to the center, which is already brimming with well-known brands and boasts a lifestyle experience like none other.”

Savage X Fenty signed a long-term lease at one of the most prominent corners at Cross County Center, previously occupied by New York & Company. Savage X Fenty was represented in-house on the deal. The asking rent was $225 per square foot.

“This is one of a small handful of brick-and-mortar locations for Savage X Fenty and the fact that the team chose Cross County Center speaks volumes about the Center’s strong appeal for well-known, celebrated brands,” continued Deitlelzweig.

Jointly owned by Marx Realty and Benenson Capital Partners, the 1.15 million-square-foot Cross County Center was the first open-air center in the United States when it opened in 1954. Marx Realty took over management of the center in 2019 and undertook an intensive re-leasing of the center.

“We strive to bring a one-of-a-kind experience to the region via our efforts to give tenants and visitors a diverse mix of retail, dining and entertainment options,” said Jim Stifel, chief investment officer of Benenson Capital. “As we look ahead to the next evolution of the Cross County Center experience, it continues to dominate as one of the nation’s premiere mixed-use centers, attracting a wide variety of best-in-class retail, restaurant and office users and we’re thrilled to welcome Savage X Fenty to the mix.”
