ESPN Zone closed its doors nearly two years ago, and the place has remained dormant ever since.Now, someone is finally stepping in to fill the gap.

H&M has made a deal to fill the spot at 4 Times Square. It will be getting all three floors of the 42,510 square foot space, reports Laura Kusisto at the Wall Street Journal.

The Swedish fast-fashion retailer’s decision is more evidence of an ongoing movement in the world of apparel retailers.

Brands like H&M have been willing to pay the big bucks to get the priciest of real estate in high-profile locations. Forever 21, American Eagle and Aeropostale all have locations in the area already.
