The part where William Sonoma is now located. They rebuilt the ceiling higher with a similar design as the one in the newer two story section. Looks like they are starting to make slow upgrades to the original parts of the mall.

Korshak seems constricted by The Crescent; I could easily see that store expanding, unless the retail component of the courtyard is retooled, I'm not really sure what Korshak could/would do. Wouldn't it be interesting to see Neimans, Forty Five Ten and Korshak on the same block?
Butters wrote:What's the fascination with Uniglo, Top Shop and COS. Uniglo has stated in multiple interviews they are struggling in the US. Top Shop has stated the same too with LA and NY solid markets but the other locations are struggling. COS never has anyone in its location in Houston when I've been at that project for lunch. Why they need such big spaces is puzzling.
Of the brands on your list, I can see Sandro, Scotch & Soda, Goyard, Patagonia, APC, doing well, especially at NorthPark.
Butters wrote:Cowboyeagle - you should shop Dallas Galleria as they rarely have any new stores or existing stores that move to new locations. That is one of the reasons why NorthPark is one of the best shopping centers in the US, is they are always bringing in cool unique stores that usually are exclusive to NorthPark in DFW.
I hate the Galleria; its design, it's store mix it represents all the things I hope to die in mall design. I love NorthPark just wish I had more income to spend on some of the more unique stores they have brought in. I am that person that if someone says Galleria I say let me out of the car.

R1070 wrote:I think DVF would have done better at NP as well. With these spaces opening up, I'm wondering if Prada and Miu Miu will scout some space.

Butters wrote:I bet they announce something this year. That's my guess.
So is that an indication that OD is tired of waiting on a new space in Knox District (due to sale from Sarofim to M Dell) or a sign that M Dell is ready to plow that block down and get moving on new mixed use there FINALLY?
R1070 wrote:Ilori has closed and the build out for Aesop has started. The new David Yurman is very nice and the old space has bee consolidated with a portion of the previous Design Within Reach for the new Ferragamo. This has created a new smaller space that will eventually house the new Versace location. Sperry appears to be on it's way out and Morphe will go into that space. I'm surprised that Sperry would go as that is a pretty new store for them. NorthPark has surprised us in the past. I'm also surprised that Cotton On is still there or haven't at least remodeled their store as wood paneling has fallen off the exterior of the store. I'll be curious to see if Splendid closes or moves to make room for 7 for all Mankind.

Also hearing good additions in the luxury area are in the works.
tamtagon wrote:I suspect the Texas exclusives like Prada, Goyard, Givenche, Loewe, Marni or whatever other brands I don't know (hahaha) will compete for stalwart space at NorthPark when there's a 5 Star Resort Hotel anchor. More than likely, this elusive hotel will be a favorite brand of Latin Americans.
