As the Houston Galleria isn't going anywhere, this isn't going to bode well for the new River Oaks District shopping center.
The Woodlands is only developing luxury retail because of distance. It's easily a 40-50 mile drive one-way to The Galleria. It's an affluent neighborhood rivaling River Oaks, but the people are time crunched to go luxury shopping so far away.

The riffraff that once infested Sharpstown is now invading The Galleria and Memorial City and First Colony to a lesser extent now that Sharpstown Mall is almost dead. I would not feel comfortable walking around the street level of Galleria I these days with all these window-shoppers milling around me, if I was rich. It's bad enough that the Chanel windows were busted and the items on display were stolen in the middle of the night last year and the valet parking incident at Neiman Marcus on Black Friday is enough of a deterrent.

Hopefully retail moves to Downtown Houston since parking fees deter riffraff away.

The River Oaks District is different in that it's mostly upscale and luxury throughout. Multiple upscale restaurants and residences going in and around ROD. Because of that, I don't see the galleria ever really going to compete with River Oaks District. The Galleria will probably always be more popular because it's a mall and two, there are many affordable places you can do to shop and eat.

According to the owner of Highland Park Village, the shopping center doesn't consider its competition to be in the state of Texas or even in the region. So, Highland Park Village isn't a competitor as it isn't in the same universe as NorthPark.

Because of strong emotions involved, no one has ever been bold enough in this forum to question opinions regarding NorthPark and the Galleria and the belief that they compare. I view NorthPark as on a level above the Houston Galleria. The reason for this is the enormous competition it receives from the other shopping centers surrounding it. So, one can't go by rent alone. There is enormous pressure from the competition around NorthPark helping keep its leasing rates low. I'm speaking of competition coming from Preston Center, Preston Royal, the Shops at Park Lane, Mockingbird Station, Upper Greenville, Snider Plaza, Highland Park Village Shopping Center, and Inwood Village. This doesn't even include all the retail that is making a comeback in central Dallas.

When both the Galleria and NorthPark were conceived, the first mentioned had to be helped along as a mixed use development while the second was able to stand alone. Meanwhile, another factor lately concerning their present scale was the work done redeveloping the freeways fronting them. Central Expressway took ten years to redevelop and during that time NorthPark had to accept in lessor quality retail. I think the same is true regarding the Houston Galleria. I think NorthPark is just now recovering from that period of time it took to reconstruct Central. Similarly, the Galleria Dallas itself should begin to rise back up in scale after the completion of the reconstruction of the LBJ Freeway.

While NorthPark has managed to expand itself while maintaining a level of intimacy, I think the Galleria has expanded itself into a conglomeration in comparison. This is another reason that I rate it a step lower than NorthPark Center. When you take all the products out of both shopping centers, NorthPark stands as the better jewel of the two.

Oh. I see what you are saying. The River Oaks District is able to sell better exclusivity. The Galleria doesn't have that going for it so much. This is going to be interesting as the competition plays out. I figured the Galleria was able to manage some exclusivity by the way it positions its stores together. As kids growing up in nearby Bellaire, we would walk over to the Galleria and enter into it by way of Neiman Marcus. We really didn't understand the offense we were committing at the time.

Did you only search stores in The Woodlands or something? What about Memorial City Mall, Baybrook Mall, Willowbrook Mall, First Colony, to name a few?

And the people of Fort Worth probably don't appreciate you listing it as a "suburb" of Dallas..

I am not familiar with the area and searched for houston suburban shopping and not that many places popped up. The Woodlands seems to be the only place that has more than a Michael Kors.


Memorial City Mall:
Michael Kors

Baybrook Mall:
Michael Kors

Willow brook Mall:
Michael Kors

First Colony:
Michael Kors

All of DFW no matter how much they dislike Dallas or how large they have grown must give credit to Dallas as it produced an area of such rich culture and economic development.
