New York City — The nearly 57,000-square-foot Chelsea store will open by 2017.

New York City — Barneys New York has plans to return to downtown Manhattan with a flagship store at its previous Chelsea neighborhood location. The nearly 57,000-square-foot, five-story downtown location will consist of five floors and have 200 feet of frontage. The Barneys New York flagship will carry men’s and women’s designer clothing, shoes and accessories, along with a foundation level for cosmetics, skincare and fragrances. The Chelsea flagship will open by 2017.

In 1923, Barney Pressman opened his men’s store “Barney’s” in Chelsea. In 1976, the store began selling women’s clothing. Barneys New York expanded into its existing flagship location on Madison Avenue in 1993 and clothes the Chelsea location in 1997.

The Madison Avenue flagship will continue to operate as the largest store for the company. The brand also operates locations on the Upper West Side, Soho and Brooklyn.
