I think stores like Bendel and Prada should be at Phipps and Legoland would be better at Lenox. Although it appears that Lenox gets more upscale all the time if you look at the stores they have added. But, the Bloomingdales at Lenox does not carry any/few of the upscale brands that you find in their NY stores which seems a little odd if they are trying to compete with Neiman Marcus in any slight way.
I think Crate and Barrel will be a good fit across the street with stores like Lululemon and Tootsies. Sometimes, you just want to park close by and run in to buy a few dozen wine glasses....

The reason why is because Crate & Barrel no longer prefers their stores to be within malls... you can see this in other places as well. They have been moving their stores out of malls and into free-standing stores or shopping centers near malls. It is that simple. It has nothing to do with what you are saying and I've been to Lenox Mall many times, I am white, and I just don't see how anyone can think that mall is "ghetto".
This is very interesting because I have heard this as well. C&B has a very nice stand alone store built right on the street in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood of Dallas. Easy ingress and egress. However the Galleria Dallas store which won design awards was in a strip like what the Lenox one will be moving into just across the street from Galleria Dallas and they closed that store to build a new store at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano. So they aren't entirely going mall-less. Only reasoning I can think of for the move to Plano was to put more miles in between the locations in the area. Like they did in Atlanta when they closed Perimeter and kept Alpharetta open.

Just a reminder that both Lenox and Phipps are owned and managed by the same company-Simon , which manages most of the malls in the country, which may explain the lack of definition and personality for both malls.

I agree. The issue that I have with Lenox is the parking. If I am going to Lenox, it is spend significant time there checking out several stores. Parking is too congested to run in and out for a few items.

My thoughts about Legoland at Phipps is that space was difficult to fill and could be made easily available. The food court at Phipps was never very popular and the third floor always seemed out of the way to try and fill with shops. I am curious to see how the Legoland concept works out, I am giving the benefit of the doubt that the Lego people did their homework

I have to do that all the time. The way wine glasses break you can go through a few dozen in no time.
