Are Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian taking Manhattan, too? The reality TV
sisters are looking to make New York the home base of their business with a huge, “full-concept Kardashian lifestyle
experience,” a source tells Page Six.
Kourtney and Khloé, who much to the dismay of locals have been staying in the Hamptons to film their E! show this summer, descended on Soho Thursday with their full entourage in tow to look at a five-story corner property at 63 Spring St.
According to a source, the sisters plan on turning the first two floors of the 5,500- square-foot building into a flagship store for their clothing line, Dash, and using the remaining three floors to house offices dealing with the family’s businesses. The space is owned by real estate mogul Jack Terzi of JTRE, who bought it for $15 million in May. The whole building is renting for $2 million a year, says an insider.
We’re told Terzi, along with his broker, Ricky Braha, personally gave the Kardashian team an in-depth tour of the space. The building features 80-foot-long wraparound windows, which would be perfect for paparazzi.
“Some 300 photographers and fans were crowding the building en masse while they were checking it out,” a witness tells us. “They were pulling out their cellphone cameras and crowding them to try and get a shot.” But renting to the family can be a curse. Irma Herzog, the owner of Driver’s Seat restaurant on Jobs Lane who rented a Southampton storefront to the Kardashians for the summer, has reportedly been “tormented and harassed” by her tony neighbors. The Kardashians currently have a Dash store in Soho at 119 Spring St. There are also boutiques in Miami and Los Angeles, along with the much-maligned pop-up space on Jobs Lane, where they’re shooting “Kourtney and Khloé Take the Hamptons”.
