I thought Nicole Miller was still there. And why would that matter?

My bad; she still is.

And Miller's a local too, though her firm is now based in New York.

East Market could get a few top luxury brands if the developers sought them.
Citycenter DC, a project with a similar concept, attracted many top brands (hermes, gucci, burberry, etc.) despite the fact that the neighborhood didn't have luxury stores before. DC's luxury district used to be Georgetown (though it did not have many international brands but mostly American ones- much like Walnut).
Plus East Market is close to many of the wealthy neighborhoods (Fitler, Society Hill, Rittenhouse, QV) and in a very (arguably the most) touristic area. With all the projects going on in Market East (and the positive outlook they generate) it should be a much better place 1 or 2 years from now.
Maybe the fact that "The Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia" is going to be across the street isn't the nicest thing. But it shouldn't be a huge problem either as there are cheap stores on Fifth Avenue and Soho in NYC and Rodeo Drive and basically every major shopping district in every city anyway.
I bet even wealthy suburbanites who live around the city would prefer shopping there (if those brands had stores there) than in KOP.

Did you see the latest renderings of the "Fashion Outlets of Phila" complex? It includes 3 tower buildings.
It changes the concept of the entire thing, IMO.

Hmmm, you all, I just read that Macy's is closing their store in downtown Pittsburgh. It's in the old Kaufmann dept store bldg.

So who knows what kind of future the Macy's in CC has.

I heard from Macys reps that CC Macys is basically tied with KoP as the top grossing Macys in the region, I would be beyond shocked if the CC location closed. There has actually been expansion rumors floating around during the past few years.

Saks also closed their Pittsburgh location a few years ago. Pittsburgh might not have the strongest retail market in general.. I know CC could use more, but the Philly area retail selection is on the caliber of Chicago, Boston, Atlanta and DC metros. Pittsburgh is far behind even for a metro of 2.3 million.

It saddens me because Pittsburgh had great, home grown, dept stores. I like Pittsburgh. It's a fun place if one is willing to discover it.

There's very little retail in downtown Pittsburgh to begin with. Once Macy's closes the only department store will be Burlington Coat Factory. At least Philly has Marshall's, Ross, and Nordstrom Rack in addition to Macy's.

As for Burlington Coat, I don't like them at all. The one at 11th and Market is dirty and it seems like everything is thrown around.

Philly has Barneys too.
Even in the burbs of Pittsburgh, there is one Nordstrom and a handful of Macys. Literally no mid to high end shopping.

Philly area has countless brands and department stores from low end to extreme high end.

I know Philly area is much bigger, but a metro of 2.5M should have more retail opportunities.

That's not entirely true, Shadyside has quite a few mid-range stores. You are correct about the extreme high end though.
