Miami, FL August 7, 2015 — Naturhouse, a nutrition and weight management retailer based in Spain, has chosen Coral Gables for its first U.S. store.
The new store is expected to open in the next two months at 2205 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, adjacent to Verizon Wireless.
Naturhouse has more than 2,000 locations in 27 countries across the globe and is a publicly traded company on the Madrid Stock Exchange (NTH.MC).
“Demand for small retail spaces in urban markets like Coral Gables is at an all-time high, and Naturhouse knew its core customer already lives and works in the immediate area,” said Andrea Vigil, an associate with Cushman & Wakefield’s retail brokerage team, who represented the landlord, Ponce de Leon Properties LC, in the transaction.
The City of Coral Gables has attracted new retailers to the area in the last 12 months, and Ponce de Leon Boulevard has seen recent store openings by Vitmain Shoppe, AT&T, Choices Café, a regional fast casual restaurant, and Cavalier, a local apparel retailer.
“This space provides Naturhouse with strong visibility to the vehicular and pedestrian traffic on one of Miami’s best retail corridors,” Vigil said.
