Appear Here Expands to the U.S. with New York City Launch
Appear Here, the leading marketplace for short-term retail space, announced today the company’s U.S. expansion plans beginning with the New York City area. Two of the biggest real estate firms in the world, Blackstone and Simon Property Group, along with Brookfield, one of the largest firms in New York, have signed up exclusively with Appear Here to list hundreds of spaces in the city’s most popular neighborhoods like Chelsea, West Village, SoHo, Nolita and Williamsburg.
Appear Here was founded in London in 2013 by 20-year-old Ross Bailey. Despite having no industry experience, Bailey signed the top UK landlords exclusively to the platform. Today, over 80,000 brands worldwide use Appear Here to find space and carry out their visual ideas. Following Appear Here’s success in London and Paris, the U.S. was Appear Here’s natural next step to accelerate its overseas expansion.
Bailey commented, “More than ever, designers, brands and entrepreneurs are realizing that renting space online is the fastest and most flexible approach to retail. We're excited about the opportunity to bring our award-winning platform and service to the US, starting with New York.”
