Google Searches for Space in NYC’s Soho for Retail Store

Google Inc. has been prowling Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood in search of a location for its first stand-alone retail outlet, according to a local real estate broker.

The search-engine company, which has expanded its reach into smartphones, computerized eyewear and laptops, is considering leasing at 131 Greene St., said Faith Hope Consolo, chairman of the retail group at Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The property is around the corner from Apple Inc.’s first New York store, on Prince Street. Google may be looking at other locations as well, according to Consolo, who said she showed company representatives retail space elsewhere.
