Pop-up retail property agent Appear Here has expanded to the US, with the launch of a New York City operation.

Real estate groups Blackstone, Simon Property Group, Thor Equities and Brookfield are among those which have signed up to work with Appear Here to make properties available for pop-up use. The partners offer space in neighbourhoods including Chelsea, West Village, SoHo and Williamsburg.

Appear Here was founded in the UK in 2013 by Ross Bailey, then aged 20. “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,” says Bailey.

The company has listed more than 4,000 exclusive pop-up spaces in the UK and France, and works with retailers such as Topshop to let temporary space within larger stores.
