I'm more excited for the 5 floor retail complex at 15th and Walnut... and the 7 floors of retail going in the Atlantic Building on Avenue of the Arts. Probably going to be a Bloomingdales. Also looking forward to the possibility of Nordstrom in Daffy's old space and the Macy's expansion and the Gallery redevelopment. Retail in Center City is looking extremely bright.

PAGING SUMMERSM!
OMG! is this for real??!! Am soooo happy. The gallery needs light, let there be light! Is hideous, just an ugly box with no Market St entrance. I was hoping for more of an glass feel but I take this. Any news on what actual stores will be heading there?

PREIT is in talks with "middle class" stores such as American Eagle, Aeropostale, Hollister Co., Pac Sun, etc. etc.

Think your normal suburban shopping mall stores.

Summersm, LUSH is on Walnut. Maybe you are thinking of Sephora
Although it will be nice to have some more retails on Chestnut!
Well anyway, I think it is beside Barbour and North Face. The same block...
If you walk from Broad Street, it is before the area of the block where they closed the street due to water spillage last Saturday.

Speaking of the Gallery and its lack of lighting....
Again I am not sure whether this is the right forum: Whatever happened to LIt Brother LED signage? When are they going to install it ever since it was being approved already?
Why everything is always taking a very slow pace to complete?
For example, it took forever for ULTA to erect those plywood walls for reconstruction, while the rumor about it coming to Walnut St. had been flying around since like...January 2012.
GRRRRRR......
And why the first thing I check in the morning once I am at work is city-data.com? LOL

OK it is confirmed that Allen Edmonds is opening on Feb 1st, 2013. Unfortunately, the address will be 1736 Chestnut Street. So technically they are replacing CLEAR mobile phone. I was hoping they would fill the empty building by Second Time Around.

However, I understand their strategy. With BOYD's around the block, as well as Men's Warehouse and that tie shop within a block, they are aiming to a more "sophisticated, old class, super dressy, blue blood" crowds. I am not sure whether I am describing it correctly, but you know what I mean! I can see at the end of 2013, 2 - 3 more similar stores will open in within vicinity of this Chestnut Street.

Found out that Kiehl's most likely will relocate to Liberty Place. That is such a disappointment. I was hoping that it can use one of the empty "slot" down on Chestnut St.
The previous Kiehl location is going to become an extension for AKA Kitchen. They might build an AKA Bar or something similar to that. In my opinion, we have already had so much bars and restaurants open; we need more national retails on Walnut. AT least it's not one of those FroYo place.

LOL!

As much as I want to see MArket East thrive, putting Harrod's on Market and 8th would be a lost cause (for them).
Although I would like to see. Maybe that is a good idea.
We just need two JUST TWO development on Market East; two big box retailers. I am thinking of Target and one of the upscale discount outlet like Off 5th, etc. I am sure development would be booming in the area.
