CENTRAL HARLEM — The angels are sprouting their wings and flying uptown.
This is the first Uptown location for both stores, which are owned by L Brands. The forthcoming shops will be located at the 112 W. 125 St. shopping center currently housing a new Olive Garden restaurant and a planned Whole Foods set to open this summer.
“This is a great addition to the retail landscape and this is a name everyone knows,” said Faith Hope Consolo of Douglas Elliman Real Estate, speaking about retail trends in the neighborhood. “They have a lot of untapped spending in Harlem, and it’s going to bring a lot of new income into the area.”
A representative from L Brands did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
