There is an architectural rendering that shows a Zara in the new wing. The same renderings show North Italia going in where the old Restoration Hardware was....so I think they are pretty accurate (since that is actually happening).

Capitol Grille >>> Capital Grille

Capital Grille is an upscale Longhorn.

we ate right downtown. It was dead on a Saturday afternoon. It reminded me of Hartford. St Pete's on the other hand had a great vibe.

Zara would be cool but Indetex (the parent company of Zara) has been closing stores I thought? But they do seem to be well managed like Dillards so they know what they are doing.

In this age of malls being forced to find ways to survive, the top-tier malls will need to differentiate themselves from the pack. Enclosed malls in all cities are declining in number. A metro of 2 million could end up with just two when it all shakes out.*
Retailers don't like to take chances on malls in smaller markets.

Dillard's has been struggling with the rest of the mid-level department stores. The new store in Nashville is still too small, and has no street activity. I see one of the stores in our market becoming a clearance center.

I agree that many retailers are skeptical, but there are exceptions to the rule especially when considering high-tourism based cities. Nashville has pent up demand for luxury retail. I don't expect huge department stores like years past, but definitely more boutiques and new to market stores. Von Maur would give Dillard's much needed competition that Belk and Macy's can't.

Retailers don't like to take chances on malls in smaller markets.
Retailers always are looking for opportunities in unique markets. Nashville's not just any market and even in this age of dying malls, Green Hills is still reaching critical mass. Several of the top retailers are in even smaller markets than Nashville, such as Charleston. And a mall is a better bet than a small city's downtown shopping district, even with the tourism chops that Charleston has. A lot of times, you'll find such retailers partnering with large department stores that want the associated marketing. Plus, Nashville is not just any small market. With its growth rate and wealth, it hits way above its class. Then there's the fact that Nashville has a fashion week, unlike markets even larger than its size. Fact is Nashville is growing at more than twice the national average, and Mall at Green Hills will see several of those stores in this expansion. Rumors in town are that Taubman wants to make a huge announcement soon. Mostly around a new anchor, Neiman's which has a store at many of their malls.

I lived in Vegas for a few months and noticed a lot of high end retailers that aren't usually in markets that size. I think Orlando is another example of what you are referencing. So you made a good point. We will see what happens in Nashville.

Hmm....interesting. Where would they put another anchor? Other than the parking lot on one side of the mall, there doesn’t seem to be plot of land to develop.

This expansion allows for a Nordstrom-sized pad fronting Abbott-Martin between Dillards and Nordstrom. It's a part of the reason the larger new garage was built on that end of the mall. Long-range plans allow for two more anchor pads on the north side of the mall in future expansions. Still at least five years away from being determined, it would be coupled with a traffic flow improvement and additional parking garage. Basically in future plans, the north parking lot would be converted to buildings and pedestrian plazas. That's a long way off at this point.
