  1. Occasionally pursue through Purseforum and a thread from that site claim that Hermes was closing at SouthPark by the end of the year (according to one of the sales associates). I do not know the validity of said claim but I would certainly hope this isn't the case. That'd be a huge blow for the mall.
  2. The majority of the tenant roster of Buckhead Atlanta are first-to-market retailers, the developers of the project have spent years trying to entice national and international retailers to invest in the Atlanta markets. Retail occupancy stood at 75%-80% as of a few months ago according to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, so we should expect more announcements in the coming weeks. The only existing stores that are said to be relocating are L'Occitane and Jimmy Choo. I'm not worried about the future of Lenox/Phipps. They both are by far the strongest performing retail centers in the Southeas
  3. Looks to be an exciting year for retail in Atlanta. Suitsupply recently opened their largest American store at the Shops Around Lenox complex. Scotch & Soda will soon open a location there. The new owners deserve some serious kudos for revitalizing this shopping center. Vince Camuto and UGG Australia will share the old Carol's Daughter space. Carol's Daughter will reopen someone in the back of the mall. Sprinkles will open their new concept at Lenox's main entrance in the fall. I believe Sperrys Topsider will also set up shop at Lenox Square. The Cheesecake Factory, True Foods Kitchen
  4. Agent Provocateur is opening on the first level in a space which used to house a Sunglass Hut. I'm glad to see that Phipps is stepping up their marketing and adding more clout into their tenant roster. One can only envision what will take over the Carter-Barnes space.
  5. Carter-Barnes is closing their Phipps Plaza location after 27 years. http://www.buckheadview.com/2013/01/phipps-plaza-adds-retailers-trina-turk.html
  6. Jack Spade will be building a boutique at the White Provisions development. No official word on the space, but's it's rumored to be located next to Billy Reid. http://www.tonetoatl.com/2012/10/jack-spade-scores-its-first-atlanta.html
  7. The whole Lenox Square Mall will be renovated at a cost of $1 billion. Work should commence after January 1. New tenants will be announced later this year. http://www.reportern...ations-in-2013/
  8. Ugh... I'll probably sound like some ignorant douchebag, but whatever. I personally hate zoos, and i would much rather have that piece of land be used as something else rather than some tourist trap with cramp living conditions for the animals.
  9. Definitely. Kinda excited what the new year will bring Atlanta in terms of shopping, especially given Lenox's renovation. Is there a completion date for that project?
  10. It's seems like the only Saks locations that seem to be doing well are the outlets stocked with a wide variety of designers, and those seem to be limited to the larger cities such as Chicago, Atlanta, Miami, San Francisco, New York, among others. Many seem to prefer Nordstrom or Neiman Marcus over Saks Fifth Avenue because they typically have better inventory.
  11. Here's some photos of the new Rebecca Taylor store at Phipps Plaza. Credit goes to Tomorrow New's Today. http://www.tonetoatl.com/2012/09/rebecca-taylor-opening-soon-at-phipps.html
  12. I like that they are taking some initiative in densifying Buckhead, but there are a few issues that I have. Buckhead is not very accessible to MARTA, as opposed to Midtown, so traffic will most likely get worse. Atlanta already has a huge glut of condominiums under $2 million. It's funny, because the W Hotel in downtown lowered its prices to attract buyers. Yet the St. Regis increased their prices, and it's almost sold out. I hope they redesign the first project before building, because it looks just like the cookie-cutter apartments that dot Atlanta's cityscape.
  13. AllSaints is actually sold at Bloomingdales. I believe they are seeing how well that does before setting up a location in the main center. Topshop will not enter in the American market until at least 2018, so it will be a while until they establish a free-standing location in Atlanta. In the mean time, Topshop clothing will be available in fourteen Nordstroms, which includes the Phipps Plaza location. I'm not sure about the other stores, but I know that Abercrombie & Fitch (the owner of Gilly Hicks) is still plagued with financial issues, so I doubt Gilly Hicks will be expanding anyti
  14. According to the mall website, looks like Original Penguin and Gregory's is opening soon.
  15. I think there is a lot of overlapping between the two malls. While Phipps Plaza has a decent amount of exclusive tenants, there are a lot of stores that overlap with their locations with Lenox. I don't really know much about the history of both areas, has it been always like this??
  16. The Benetton store at Lenox has closed. They have consolidated operations at the Phipps location. Crocs will open in the space at Lenox. Meh... http://whatnowatlanta.com/2011/01/20/crocs-to-open-storefront-at-lenox-square-mall/
  17. I'm surprised that neither Zara or H&M have a location in Charlotte. They would do well in SouthPark.
  18. Ermenegildo Zegna has finally opened. It's a very large store, isn't it a flagship? And the Fendi store looks great. Here's an image for those who wanna see the storefront. More changes: Armani Exchange will close their Phipps Plaza location in favor for a location at Lenox. One another side, Bottega Veneta will open a boutique this summer at Phipps Plaza. http://whatnowatlanta.com/2011/01/07/armani-exchange-to-close-at-phipps-and-reopen-at-lenox-square/ http://whatnowatlanta.com/2011/01/07/bottega-veneta-announces-new-boutique-at-phipps-plaza/
  19. Herve Leger is opening in the Neiman Marcus wing at Lenox. They confirmed it on their website.
  20. Can't say I'm surprised about Calvin Klein. Had they probably sold the Collection lines at the White Label stores, and a lot more would probably be open. With that said, The American Cafe at Phipps has closed. Surprised that it lasted this long, the food was not good at all. However, it's always sad to see people being laid off from work.
  21. A Chanel store in Atlanta would most likely be bigger, because it's a bigger market than Orlando. You have a few other Chanel stores not too far from Orlando, so it kinda effects the store size. Many high-end boutiques have their only outposts in Atlanta, and the nearest ones are usually hundreds of miles away in DC or Miami. So the stores would be bigger usually.
  22. Read somewhere that Chanel was opening a boutique at Phipps Plaza this August.
  23. Mayors by Birks plans to open a boutique at Phipps Plaza. It will be the second boutique of the brand. http://www.bizjournals.com/atlanta/stories/2010/05/03/daily86.html
  24. French Connection plans to close all but six U.S. stores. I think the store in Atlanta will be spared for the time being. They haven't announced what the six stores would be. http://nymag.com/daily/fashion/2010/03/french_connection_to_close_all.html On a side note, Clarks is opening a store at Lenox and should open May.
  25. I won't get my hopes high. If it's true great. If not, that still is okay. Looks like they are confirming that Fendi will open a store at the Neiman Marcus wing sometime this year (check News & Events row). http://www.simon.com/mall/?id=207 I'm surprised PacSun or Hot Topic haven't opened a store at Lenox. I think it would do pretty well.
