For overall totally upscale, sort of. It's not completed yet though, and it's much more a neighborhood or district than a mall in my opinion. And absolutely beautiful, I might add.

Considering Rocco's question, I would say yes. Lenox overall is our upscale mall, but Phipps is sort of an adjunct across the street if that makes sense.

Lenox has among the largest Bloomingdale's & Neiman Marcus stores in the country, along with the more mainstream but huge flagship Macy's. There is a huge mix of designer outposts, national chains like Pottery Barn with their largest U.S. store, the J.W. Marriott, many popular restaurants, etc.

Lenox/Phipps are pretty unique. Now with the same owner and co-branded, they were originally edge of suburbia malls when developed in the 50's & 60's and are now surrounded by millions of square feet of office space, thousands of highrise and other dense residential units, thousands of upscale hotel rooms, the largest collection of fine dining in the Southeast and two subway stations.

Love it or hate it, Lenox is our de-facto High Street when it comes to shopping and much, much more. I am just so glad this area is within the City and urbanizing so nicely where it needs to, and not in some burb like King of Prussia or McLean.

Went to Phipps once and I never heard of most of the stores in there, that's how high end that place is. I think Lenox is better though, a good mix of high end and spots for us regular folk.

Lenox, it's got a good mix of stores and there is a MARTA station across the street. It's surrounded by office buildings and residential towers with pleasant pedestrian infrastructure.

Lenox, Phipps, and BA are coming strong. I can't believe the number of folks coming from neighboring states to BA to spend.

The chief reason why these 3 will never fail is that their market is huge.

Lenox is Atlanta's classiest shopping area. Its history and current mix of stores make it a regional destination...I would imagine it's the most well-known in Atlanta.

Perimeter holds it's own, but is not quite on the level of Lenox/Phipps/Buckhead Atlanta.

I do think mainstream luxury retailers prefer Lenox Square because of the high foot traffic, but ultimately the ultra-high end retailers prefer Phipps Plaza as far as enclosed malls are concerned.

BA is bringing some stiff (and IMO much needed) competition so it'll be interesting to see what tenants Simon will sign in the coming months for Phipps Plaza.

Lenox Square Mall is an enclosed super-regional mall that is Atlanta's largest and has some of the highest sales per square foot of any mall in the country. With its blue chip tenant roster and location on Atlanta's signature street, Peachtree Road, in trendy Buckhead, adjacent to a MARTA station and within a mile of both SR 400 as well as I-85, Lenox Square is the "best" mall in Atlanta.
In contrast, Buckhead Atlanta is an open-air luxury lifestyle center that has garnered national attention for its combination of bold face name brand tenants and urban design. While different in form and function, they both are significant assets to Atlanta's growth and development.

If there is a "war" between them going forward, Atlanta's shoppers will be the winners.
