The Tot is now closed.

That leaves around 9/10 current spaces empty at the village, more than I can ever remember.
Hope they announce a new lineup coming soon.

Is there a spa at HPV?

Draper James website now lists their Dallas store as being located at Windrose Parkway in Plano - disappointing to lose an exclusive store to the suburbs.

Not sure why HPV is so secretive - they used to have a nice coming soon portion of their site. If they actually believe they are a destination that people travel in for like they tout in the media I would think they would want to hype up their coming soon more.

Windrose Parkway in Plano is the street for Legacy West...

"Is there a spa at HPV?"

A boutique hotel would do wonders but the residents don't want it and will not let it happen unfortunately.

Maybe a good plan, presented in the right way, will one day resonate in the right way with residents. Elevating the stature of the shopping center could do wonders for the neighborhood.

^ I don't think you understand the HP mindset. If they could they would gate every entrance to their town, and wouldn't let in anyone but residents and deliveries. No, I'm not exaggerating.

Remember when the Park Cities YMCA, a couple blocks from HP Village, expanded? The HP city council tried to make the building permit conditional on them only allowing HP and UP residents as members. The YMCA refused and the city eventually gave in.

I was told many years ago that there is not a single church physically located within the city limits of Highland Park. They're not allowed because they generate too much noise and traffic for their quiet village.

^ Interestingly, the UP/HP boundary runs right through their main building.

Even Highland Park High School is in University Park. So UP gets all the "traffic" and "noise" for that one also. But how many homes in HP have something involving "Scots" (signs, flags, stickers, etc) in their front yards or on their cars/SUVs? Umm-hmm.

Former Draper James has coming soon Tory Burch signs so they are on the move. Perhaps Goyard wanted two spaces? Also Hadleighs opens July 5 in the former Goop/Billy Reid space. Appears this leaves 2 vacant spaces next to them. Still surprised Billy Reid never reopened after so many years in Dallas.

Billy Reid mentioned reopening in Dallas at some point. I’d imagine in a more trendy location. I can’t imagine Goyard having that large of a store. Maybe someone else is moving in.

...is there any chatter about these brands cycling out of HPV looking at a location near the Downtown Neimans & FortyFiveTen?

Bills Reid is going back to NorthPark. 99 percent of retailers need foot traffic and HPV doesn’t provide that. Just look at Saint Laurent now who looks like they are doing much better at NorthPark
