Indeed thank you.

Knox is more traditional Main Street while Henderson is bohemian. Henderson has the ideal location though. It sits within the vacuum between the Park Cities and Lakewood. I tried making that point about Dallas. In lesser cities, having a Knox Street retail disrict would be enough. The addition of Henderson is mind boggling ridiculous. Again, Dallas isn't part of the same old ball of wax.

It's going nowhere, YPP is hellbound on convincing Everyone that Dallas has the best luxury retail not just in Texas but the world. He's obsessed. I don't know his endgame but I'm thinking maybe he's writing a research paper or article on it, I can't see any other basis for his obsession.

He takes the Dallas stereotype of excessive shopping to the extreme. Dallas seems like one huge shopping mall after reading all of his posts.

Perhaps Prada decides to locate in Lakewood. Lakewood and Prada then become synomonous after thoughts together. It knows that Lakewood Shopping Center is quite a beautiful place along with being both popular and upscale. I think such a store in Lakewood located in such a limited exclusive way could be prosperous.
This is the best part of this thread. Hahahaha.
For real??? You really this THIS???

Prada in Lakewood. Killing me....seriously.

You don't understand the market. Figure everytime the population of North Texas expands by a million people, its surrounding market increases by another million or two million altogether.

My point is that Prada could open up in Lakewood. Ray Washburne the owner of Highland Park Village said that Lakewood is a sleeping giant. There are many popular shopping centers and districts stepping up to Lakewood Shopping Center. There is Live Oak and Lower Greenville to the east, Caruth's Hillside Shopping center to the north, and Casa Linda to the West.

This is yet another example of the prowess of Dallas retail. Preston Road would be incredible enough for any typical city. Dallas also has the area of Lakewood to boot. In my opinion, the retail areas of Lake Cliff, the Bishops Arts District, and Jefferson Boulevard in North Oak Cliff are even more beautiful.

I think the people of Dallas either take their city for granted or they are blinded by the massive empty edifices erected in dwntown. To understand the real Dallas, one has to get over this fixation. Dallas benefits from developments built around anchors of retail.

My argument is that one has to understand the many levels of Dallas retail before focusing on an individual level of it. In the past, Dallas incubated its own luxury retail. To understand how, one needs to appreciate the city's depth as a wholesale center. The Dallas Market Center is a real heavy weight. I posted a thread about it.
