Sounds like an interesting concept--all the better if it adds to more architectural diversity in the city:

Australian brick company picks Walnut Street for first North American retail store

Where on Walnut Street? It’s behind the paywall.

Kate Spade and Sephora are also official in the Fashion District.

Very solid retailers.

With the addition of Primark it's turning out to be better than I thought.

I always had low expectations but maybe it will turn into KoP lite. There are plenty of people living nearby that were not there a few years ago. It has tremendous potential. It can work. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Was in there with the wife this weekend. The girl at Levis said that they were crazy busy and that early returns have been great.

Once the street facing stuff has all filled in (Sephora, Starbucks, Primark, Yard house), this will feel MUCH more complete.

This really could be a hit.

So the Lord & Taylor of Moorestown Mall is closing.

I'm a little dismayed that inquirer.com has covered a number of PREIT mall news in the past (several on Moorestown mall restaurant changes and much smaller changes there), but has no story on the closure of the South Jersey Lord & Taylor department store. I'm not surprised though with the closure, but it missed the radar of the Inquirer that should have covered it.

There is history that the store was built there, with a new Strawbridge's (from its new owners May Co.), there when the previous mall owners were originally targeting a much greater expansion with a Nordstrom, but Rouse Co. winded up purchasing Moorestown in 1997, so that it could contain it and keep Cherry Hill the premier mall without the competition.

Google search also results in no article from Courier Post of Cherry Hill either, but there articles from September from patch.com, Burlington County Times, and coverage all the way up from News 12 NJ from Edison NJ though. The closure was actual part of the plan with the sale of the chain.

Perhaps it made it up to News12 because Lord & Taylor was a NYC area based chain. It is closing in Woodbridge Center in Central/Northern NJ too.

Equinox is coming to the Laurel Tower in Rittenhouse. I'm surprised it took this long to actually get one.
