Arc’teryx to Open Manhattan Door

Canadian outdoor apparel brand Arc’teryx will open a second Manhattan location in the Flatiron District, taking over space currently used by fitness startup Mirror. Arc’teryx signed a 10-year lease for 6,800 square feet at 139 Fifth Avenue, between East 21st and East 22nd streets, according to information from Thor Equities, which owns the six-story landmarked property.

Arc’teryx currently operates around 80 stores worldwide, including an existing Manhattan location at 196 Spring Street.

Mirror, a startup that offers a workout platform through a smart mirror, opened its showroom in the space in January 2019, along with a six-story mural on a nearby property.

“Arc’teryx will be an asset to the popular Flatiron District and will be at home amongst other world-class fitness, activewear and fashion retailers along lower Fifth Avenue,” Thor CEO and chairman Joe Sitt said.
