This will change as the Dallas Dior is about to expand to be larger than the Galleria location but still smaller than the ROD location. The Hermes is also smaller as is the Dolce & Gabbana and so forth. Harry Winston (which opened 10 years after Dallas) is not only larger than the HPV, it’s the largest outside of NYC. Cartier smaller, etc.

There’s brands lots of that have their larger footprint in Dallas as well. Prada is set to be one of them. As are many others. LV’s Dallas store is also larger.

It’s also completely false that a high end store will “settle” for a nearby market. If they enter a market it’s because they’re specifically targeting that market. This isn’t Footlocker or Dicks Sporting Goods lmao
GRAND "Location"!!......Not size.

Im not sure if anyone mentioned this above. But I personally like the parking lot upgrade they gave to HPV a few years back

Before:

After:

It’s always a challenge to make a development designed for the automobile more walkable but this certainly was as great improvement.

Lol like I said before his posts are so amusing because of the (honestly impressive) level of consistent delusion he has.

The entertainment value is high, the factual value not so much. But hey, he's established his niche as the prototypical stereotypical Dallas sunshine pumper quite well - it's quite the schtick and gets views for sure.

Yes, and...?? The square footage in the Houston Galleria LV stores is significantly greater than what they have in their Northpark store.

Is it the parking lot change that you don't like, or is it what he said about making automobile-built areas more pedestrian friendly?

Because the before and after pics of that parking area is like night and day...a BIG improvement.

It appears that the separate sidewalk / curb vs. parking field distinction they had previously was eliminated in favor of a "woonerf" type of design, which is meant to be a seamless integration of pedestrian and vehicle space, which in theory slows down the vehicle speeds.

I see white cones apparently used to create a walking zone for pedestrians. How is this a BIG improvement? What do you see? Please enlighten me. I try to be fair but in this case I just don’t see it.

Part of it is pure psychological. But nonetheless, that’s how humans respond. Additionally, though, the design matches the architecture of HPV more so than plain concrete.

ROD also repaved some of the street with brick. In the google maps street view, construction was still going on but you can see some completed portions.

On the Western end, they replaced the street with a small park
