Exactly. Good example for less than high end clothing is Primark which seems to be doing okay at KoP. That kind of store belongs in CC.

Agreed, Primark is almost out of place in KOP these days.

This is going into 2400 Market, i.e. the new Aramark hq, that most on here seem to hate, right? At least some dislike the exterior.

Yes. A Soho House type of club will be somewhere in that building.

I don't hate it. Not sure why everyone dislikes it so much. It's short, but I don't mind that. It's way better than what was there.

Some of us saw the initial proposal for the site, which would have added about 10 stories of residences to the squat office building. The residential slab was broken up in some very interesting ways.

Relative to that, this is a letdown. Relative to what it's replacing, it's an improvement, even with the loss of the Wayland mural.

Nothing noteworthy about Tyrwhitt. They're a mid-tier, mid-priced clothing store. Brooks Brother's is far more appealing - in fact so is Macy's. IMO, they need big Mall traffic for a chance to succeed in this area.

Michael Kors and Under Armour both closed along Walnut. Retail vacancies are piling up.

At 17th, either a Citizen's Bank is taking over the old Aerosoles, or it's providing the financing for something else - the sign in the window is a bit confusing. My guess since we have not heard any rumors/excitement about a new retailer that it's going to be a CB...which sucks.

Seems that the whole retail market is a bit influx at the moment with the Gallery/Fashion District project potentially luring/fighting for tenants eastward. Walnut is in a weird stasis, and has been for almost a year now.
