As anticipation builds for the upcoming ICSC Las Vegas conference, we delve into the retail landscape of three major markets: New York, South Florida, and Chicago, through the lens of Odyssey Retail Advisors.


New York City's Fifth Avenue, long renowned for its opulent shopping experiences, is experiencing a remarkable revival. Charlie Koniver, principal at Odyssey Retail Advisors, highlights the surge in U.S. luxury spending as a driving force behind this resurgence. He emphasizes that this revitalization is not merely a local phenomenon but an affirmation of the enduring appeal of luxury retail on a global scale.


Odyssey Retail Advisors has played a pivotal role in this transformation, reintroducing prestigious brands to this iconic shopping street. Recent leases secured by the firm include Dolce & Gabbana, Chopard, Chanel, Burberry, and Bang & Olufsen, among others. These signings are reshaping Manhattan's retail landscape, turning it into a vibrant hub for luxury shopping once again.


In South Florida, the real estate market is witnessing a boom, particularly in the luxury retail segment. Bruce Koniver, another principal at Odyssey, attributes this growth to the influx of migration to the area. The firm's strategic vision has positioned it as a leader in representing notable retailers seeking presence in sought-after neighborhoods like Coconut Grove, the Miami Design District, Aventura, and Bal Harbour.


Additionally, Odyssey Retail Advisors remains highly active in representing luxury brands on Palm Beach Island's prestigious Worth Avenue. This activity further solidifies their impact on upscale shopping destinations, highlighting their ability to navigate the evolving retail landscape.

In Chicago, the retail scene is vibrant, with prominent destinations like The Shops at Tribune Tower and Oak Street leading the charge. Sharon Kahan, Senior Vice President at Odyssey, emphasizes the unique blend of luxury and charm that these locations offer.


The Shops at Tribune Tower, known for its historic architectural grandeur, is transforming into an elevated shopping haven. It attracts a mix of local and international brands, catering to both tourists and city dwellers alike. Meanwhile, Oak Street stands as a luxurious enclave within the Gold Coast neighborhood, adorned with exclusive boutiques and renowned designer stores like Cartier, Balenciaga, and Montblanc.
