Urban Outfitters going downtown

BURBANK VILLAGE -- Downtown Burbank is getting a new resident.

Urban Outfitters, a trendy chain clothing and home accessories

store, signed a 10-year lease with the city Monday to move into the


long-vacant Newberry’s building at 328 San Fernando Blvd.

Urban Outfitters, along with developer Bill Tucker, received a

start-up loan from the city for $675,000 in December and will pay

$18,000 a month in rent.


“We’re looking forward to joining the downtown area and think

it’ll be a great addition,” Tucker said.

The store is scheduled to open in September or October, he said.
