Not to bring up everyones favorites place again, but this would look great in say the current Lululemon space after they move. Wide glassy storefront with vibrant colors=success for Walnut St.
It will look good beside Club Monaco on that soon-to-be-occupied AT&T building.
But I agree with you, that space beside Lacoste will be ideal. Although the only thing is that L.P. is only for women. We need something catered to guys as well - something that is not suit oriented.

Or maybe on the new East Market development. That will be nice.
Something about their stores and Vineyard Vines's. But again I am from Florida, I like bright pastel colors. ;D

I'm a guy so no lilly obviosuly, but I think Lilly and Vineyard would be ideal for Walnut St.

I think stores like Topman/Topshop, another Zara, Hollister would fit the East Market development more, and then preppier/more expensive brands as you enter Walnut.

WAY before DiBruno's created their CC stores, Strawbridge and Clohier, had their own gourmet food emphorium called, generically, the Food Hall. So, having Eataly end up in almost the same location is interesting history to me.

SweetGreen was finally open for good. Not the soft opening. (Oct 10th was the soft opening btw).
They put their logo there already.
For a bonus point, the scaffold towers next door in front of that vintage apartment building, which basement is occupied by Joan Shepp are gone. It was an eye sore. Now I can enjoy the beauty of the building.
For those who are not from the area, I took pictures and will post them soon.

"Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia".

No thanks.

I can't tell if this is better or worse than them renaming Pattison Station "AT&T Station".

FWIW, you really can't call the Food Hall a "generic" name. Most department stores, even big-city flagships, had nothing like this. "The Cellar" at Macy's Herald Square in New York was one of the few I can think of that I've seen; there was also John Wanamaker's short-lived version, "The Market at Wanamakers."

The only other "Food Hall" I'm aware of is at Harrods, in London. It was that famed facility that inspired Stockton Strawbridge to install a version in the 8th and Market store, and accordingly, he gave it the same name.

Worse. SEPTA got some money from AT&T for the station renaming. Then again, PREIT took the mall off the city's hands and is paying for the transformation,...wait, I think there's some money from the Commonwealth involved as well. So still worse.

Kit and Ace Will Be the Newest Addition to Frankford Avenue | Naked Philly

Interesting tidbit about a rather upscale small chain opening in Fishtown of all places. Very exciting to see if this store is a success/draws other boutiques and national retailers to that area.
