When West Elm decided to move to 484 King Street, the neighborhood had minimal local retail presence and all national retailers were clustered south of Calhoun Street. Given Patrick Price’s experience on King Street and extensive market insight, he was able to successfully represent the Landlord by counseling a national retailer to settle into yet uncharted retail territory.
West Elm, a sister store of Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn, became the first national retailer to take root on Upper King north of Calhoun, paving the way for a much more diverse mix of food, beverage, and retail options in that neighborhood.
A complicated delivery, which required the need to combine three separate buildings and part of a second floor for the needs of the new tenant, required a complete renovation. Patrick was able to assist ownership with various aspects of turning over the premises to the new tenant.
