Just another reason I will avoid the congested nightmare that is Norwalk.

This may actually ease Rt 1 congestion without hopefully paralyzing West Avenue. I drive west avenue most days to get to the SoNo train station and other than the ridiculous red light timing, is fairly light volume. I think with lowes and this shopping plaza opening away from core Rt 1 may actually be a blessing. Time will tell.

I'm so happy. Finally we will have the trifecta of upper class retail mall shopping: Macy's, Lord & Taylor, and Nordstrom, lol! I would get upset when people would point out that Danbury Mall didn't have one but the malls in Massachusetts did. I'm just happy there will be one near me in Connecticut.

Westfarms Mall in West Hartford/Farmington has all 3 of these plus a J C Penney. Tell Massachsetts to stick it. Jay

The Westchester is still much more upscale than this is proposed to be - I would think all the Darien, NC, Wilton ladies would flock here if it included a Neiman Marcus and some upscale boutiques like in White Plains.

If they did, wouldn't their downtowns take a big hit?

Maybe New Canaan and Westport, which has some nice stores, but I can't think of anything of note in Darien or Wilton. Most lower Fairfield County people go to Greenwich, Westport, or New York for good (clothing) shopping.

Hahaha, Jay. On my way home while driving, I realized that Westfarms has all three. Unfortunately, it's out of my way to go there, so, I'm stuck with looking at Danbury Mall and comparing it to everywhere else. I think Filene's was our equivalent, but, they went, unfortunately. Now, we just lack a big upper class retail store. :/

I hope to move to Lower FFC one day, so, I'm excited big things are being planned in Norwalk.

I believe the Darien Sport Shop in Darien is still a big draw for upscale shoppers in Fairfield County. Jay

If you want Vineyard Vines and Polo. If you're looking for anything nicer, Mitchells is really the only thing outside of Greenwich for upscale shopping, at least for men. DSS is equivalent to, say, Nordstrom, versus Neiman Marcus or Saks.
