Anybody know anything about this?

Rumor has it that they will have a store right near the Highline.

Storefronting: Barneys To MePa?!

MePa: We received a tip today so enormous, of such importance, that we couldn't wait a minute longer to share. From a reader: "My buddy is a big commercial restate guru and he hinted to me that Barney's has purchased the building behind Diane Vonfurtsenberg's new place. They are just in the middle of a permit & zoning battle. Have you guys heard anything about this?" We're assuming that it's not going to be another Co-op, since it'll be quite close to the one in Chelsea. Does this mean that the luxe department store is opening a downtown hub? Anyone with a clue can, of course, send along (tips@curbed.com) a note. No pressure. [CurbedWire Inbox]
