This is great! I initially thought it would go into the old Theodore location as I have never seen a Shake Shack in a food court, and the ones in malls, like Houston’s Galleria, are full sized locations. So I am very interested to see how this turns out!

As for my expectation of Apple being rebuilt, I don’t think they’ve rebuilt the store in a long time, their upgrades were just the addition of the video walls and other things, but it still has the metal exterior instead of the modernised white one that the Galleria, the old Willow Bend one, and Southlake have. So eventually I’d expect it to happen, but with the recent upgrades maybe now isn’t the right time.

Disney and Cotton On spaces are boarded up. I’m assuming Uno de 50 will go into the previous Fresh space.

The Balenciaga store is open and a much better space than they had at HP Village.

I guess Apple isn’t expanding, Psycho Bunny is opening in the old Marmi space. Tonal is going in where Fresh was.

I always assumed the Psycho Bunny space was temporary, they opened just days after Tory Sport closed, and the space looked the same.

If Disney can't make it at NorthPark, what does that say for the future of brick and mortar retail?

Disney has decided to close almost all of their brick & mortar stores. That's hardly an indictment of Northpark, Dallas, or Brick & Mortar retail in general.

Now, on the other hand, I think Bvlgari's quiet exit out of Dallas without explanation is more concerning IMO (given this was the only location to close).

I agree. The Bvlgari store at NorthPark was relatively new as well, and they had a store already there prior to that one which was also there for a long time. I hope they return eventually, whether they choose NorthPark, HPV, or even Downtown.
Anyone know what the plan is for the spaces behind the ticketing stand beneath the AMC movie theatre? I know there used to be a restaurant there, but they’ve been empty for a very long time, and to be honest, I’m quite disappointed that Shake Shack and Dreamscape didn’t fill those spaces.

Dreamscape should have gone in that space. I could see Lego expanding to a bigger space. The Bulgari closure isn’t surprising since the latest space they were in was temporary and Balenciaga was already planned to go in there. Maybe it will pop up again at NP or HP Village. Their Atlanta location closed a while ago, so maybe they are doing some gradual downsizing.

Etoile is out. Uno de 50 is replacing the space.

Faherty is opening a store next to the James Avery store. I think this space was previously a Chico's store.
