First things first. From now own, the former Shops at Summerlin will be referred to as Downtown Summerlin, the new name for the shopping complex being built on 400 acres just south of Red Rock Resort. Yesterday, owners from the Howard Hughes Corp. gave the media a tour of the construction going on there. New reveals include a firm Oct. 9 opening date, five stand-alone restaurants will sit on the northern and eastern sides of the complex and more.
When asked about the possibility of a fourth anchor tenant will join Dillard's, Macy's and the five theater Regal Cinemas, the answer was that Nordstrom, originally planned to open at the 1.6 million-square-foot shopping center, is waiting for sales to improve at Fashion Show before committing to a second location in Las Vegas. For now, Nordstrom Rack, going in the southern side of Downtown Summerlin, will have to do.
Also on the agenda, an 8,000-square-foot unnamed spa joining the mix.
Never fear, the shopping center will feature 125 stores and restaurants when complete. Readers of Racked Vegas will see a familiar list of names on the roster. So far, the following retailers signed leases to be a part of the project: American Eagle, b.young, Boot Barn, Boston Proper, Brighton Collectibles, Buckle, Chico's, Clark's, Envy, Everything But Water, Francesca's Collection, Kay Jewelers, Lane Bryant, Lindbergh, LG Gallery, Loft, Michael Kors, New Balance, Nordstrom Rack, Off Broadway Shoes, Old Navy, Pandora, Republic of Couture's Resto Lounge, True Religion, Scene Shoes, Skechers, Soma, Victoria's Secret and White House Black Market.
Art of Shaving, Bath & Body Works, GNC, Sephora and Ulta round out the beauty stores coming, along with beauty services companies Bonita Eyebrow Threading, Patel's Threading & Henna Art, Posare Salon and Signature Nails.
Golfsmith, Sports Authority and Sports Town make up the sporting goods stores.
