So I am wondering at what point will the mall become too saturated with luxury retailers, or if that is even possible?
Given that a lot of New Yorkers seem to be making the leap to Philly, I think it will be fine. I swear I'm seeing just as many NY license plates as I do from NJ.

We got a wave of New Yorkers after 9/11 and another wave seems to be happening now. Many of them are being priced out of NY but are still pretty affluent by Philly standards.

Landing Gear and Official Unlimited are coming to KOP Mall. Official Unlimited is a Philly based store which is pretty cool.

I haven't been to Philadelphia since mid-January. Just wanted a quick update, if that's OK?

Is any part of the Gallery Mall still open? I'm guessing the Nuts Plus store at street level is gone, because they don't show up on the state lottery's search for "Where To Play" (I often bought scratch tickets there).

How is the building project on the southern side of Market Street coming along? I know it was just east of City Hall.

Only Century 21 and some of the stores in Gallery II (specifically, the food vendors on the lower level, Old Navy and Burlington Coat Factory) are open. The state budget impasse last year stalled the flow of state funds expected to push the Gallery remake along, and work on the conversion is currently stalled.

East Market is rising nicely. It's in the 1100 block. The first tenant of the development, MOM's Organic Market at 34 S. 11th, will open this fall.

Unless the US stores are different Primark definitely doesn't belong on that list. It borders on hilariously inexpensive until you think/read about why their clothes are so cheap.

You also have Burberry, LV, Hermes, and David Yurman that have expanded to flagships. I like to point that out because there are only a handful of those in the nation.

We're really not talking BIG space here. Philipp Plein's Madison Ave Store is only 1700 Sq Feet (Total) with a tiny (< 25 Foot) Frontage. Their strategy seems to be very small Brick and Mortar, to support primary on-line sales.

I know what a flagship store is. But what qualified these stores to be "flagships?" Wouldn't high end companies like the ones listed above want to have their US flagship stores in NYC or Beverly Hills? I think its great they are opening flagship stores but why at KOP?

Traffic at the mall. It's the largest on the East Coast (and in the country for now until a planned Mall of America expansion is completed) and a draw for luxury shoppers beyond the region. There's no similar concentration of luxury retail on this coast outside NYC.
