Positive addition, no doubt. But the hope for a department store is even slimmer now.

Just to clarify, this is the ad that was circulated a few weeks ago indicating that Bloomingdale's was looking for outlet AND full service store space in a place like Center City--so they're mutually exclusive. Due to logistics involved, I'm sure they're spending much more time on where to locate their department store:

True. But the space is smaller than Nordstrom's Rack and Forever 21. I guess it could be some kind of test run.

Didn't Bloomingdale look at Center City after Gimbels closed?

there are three properties in CC that meet that footprint requirement

1 East Market
2 Market East 1100 Market
3 Broad and Washington

so really two as B&W is not a location where bloomies would go, today or for the foreseeable future

I am not sure how large the Atlantic building space is

So the rumor that the outlet is going to be in the Gallery is even slimmer.
Or maybe we will have a fully-fledged Bloomie in the Gallery? Hmmmm

Me think instead of Blooingdales Outlet, maybe the location in Liberty place could be for Disney Store.
Everybody loves Disney store (at least I do!)
Or Lego Store or something children-related. Esp. since the Children Boutique has moved to the first floor beside J. Crew.
I think it is just the right size. There is TGI Fridays downstairs = family venue = BINGO!

Anyway I read this on philly.com
It is about the methadone clinics near Walgrees across the street.
So apparently they are going to stay for another 5 years.

Personally when I passed by the area, I had never seen any brawl in front of it. Although of course the sights of the recovering addicts are unpleasant. And one time I saw a large puddle of sickness there. Being an emetophobe, it really scared the sh*t out of me.

"East Market" is the name of the development whose first new construction phase is now under way in the 1100 block of Market Street, so really 1. and 2. above are the same site.

Perhaps you had in mind the parking lot in the 800 block of Market that will now not house a new casino? Presumably the development team that owns the site is looking for another use for it.

Note that the MSC ads soliciting sites for Bloomie's stated that the outlet store would be 15,000 to 25,000 square feet. I think that's pretty close to the size of the former Warner Bros. Studio Store space the news story says Bloomie's wants to occupy. It'd be diagonally across from Nordstrom Rack too, adding more energy to the 16th and Chestnut intersection.

I think it's pretty much set that the new Gallery will be a "fast fashion" mall, not upscale, what with both BCF and Century 21 as anchors. Given that the one announced retail tenant for East Market so far is an organic-foods grocer, the prospects for upscale at that site look better IMO.

I don't think the lower floors of 260 South Broad have enough space for a full-line department store, but I may be wrong. Its main drawback: No retail neighbors to contribute synergy.

Word that Gucci is looking to fill the final space at the new cheescake factory building, and Burberry will be coming back taking over the Chipotle space by 15th and Walnut in the fall.
