Activists Win As Lord And Taylor Flagship Building Sold

HBC to sell Fifth Avenue flagship Lord & Taylor store

The Fifth Avenue store between 38th and 39th streets has been home since February 24, 1914.

The Lord and Taylor building will continue to operate though the 2018 holiday season.

HBC expects the transaction to result in an aggregate debt reduction of C$1.6 billion and an increase in total liquidity of about C$1.1 billion.

After that, it will be converted into WeWork's NY headquarters along with WeWork office space and a redesigned Lord & Taylor store of approximately 150,000 square feet (14,000 square meters), according to the companies. They can be converted into an equal number of HBC common shares, which represent a 21.8 per cent stake in the company.

Taylor Swift sends fans wild with "nude" video
Fans also made theories about the song's connection to Swift's current boyfriend, Joe Alwyn , or ex-boyfriend, Harry Styles . And while we did wait quite a while for new music, this is clearly proving to be more than worth the wait.

One of Hudson's Bay's shareholders, the real estate investment firm Land and Buildings Investment Management, has pushed for the company to sell the Saks store, suggesting it might be desirable to a hotel developer or as bricks and mortar space for Amazon.

HBC now anticipates minimal impact on its earnings from the sale of the Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue building, which is many times less productive in comparison to the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship building.

The Lord & Taylor store in NY will operate through the 2018 holiday season, then be reduced in size to 150,000 square feet from the current 650,000 square feet, with the building converted to WeWorks' headquarters.

HBC has repeatedly claimed its real estate is worth three times more than its current market cap.

As the retail industry tries to cope with falling foot traffic and the e-commerce surge, retailers are attempting to reimagine their physical spaces through redevelopments that shrink their footprints as Kohl's is doing, selling floors in key locations as Macy's has done and redesigning customer traffic flow to accommodate in-store and online shoppers better, as Target is in the midst of. The property was appraised recently at about $3.7 billion, according to the New York Times.

"This is a transformative partnership that rethinks how retailers create exciting environments and leverage less productive space, while substantially improving the value proposition", HBC executive chairman Richard Baker said in a release.

HBC's Baker credits WeWork with its ability to build active communities.
