Redesigned by Peter Marino, the space was originally built in 1996 and now covers 14,000 square feet, making it the largest Chanel boutique in the U.S.A! It’s five floors with an entire six story facade composed of white printed glass panels framed by a thin black metal grid. It’s a very classic black-and-white “Miesian” facade, an homage to the Seagram Building.
