Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

There appears to be some build out taking place in the previous Idle Rich space on McKinney. I don't know why they didn't just let Idle Rich stay open. I felt like they were a good neighborhood spot that didn't get too wild.

Re: Northpark Center

While the current Ferragamo space isn't too much larger than the current Versace space, it's a way better location.
Good for them! The Scotch & Soda location will be more interesting.

I feel like NorthPark is getting heavy on makeup stores. I remember when they got all of the high end watch stores around the same time. Now it's makeup. I would like to see more unique clothing stores that aren't ultra luxury.

Ilori has closed and the build out for Aesop has started. The new David Yurman is very nice and the old space has bee consolidated with a portion of the previous Design Within Reach for the new Ferragamo. This has created a new smaller space that will eventually house the new Versace location. Sperr...
