Stanford Shopping Center announces 10 new retail stores


Stanford Shopping Center's multi-million dollar redevelopment project started in 2012, with a proposal to demolish the original Bloomingdale's and construct a new, smaller retail store, as well as to add five buildings, including the standalone site of Fleming's Steakhouse.

Now, the upscale shopping center is entering its final phase of renovation, and on Tuesday, Simon Property Group, which owns the center, unveiled a list of 10 retail stores among more than 25 new stores expected to open in the spring of 2016.

The new retailers to set up shop in the former Bloomingdale's area include: Anthropologie; Allen-Edmonds Shoe; LUSH Fresh Handmade Cosmetics; Luisa Spagnoli, a Italian women's fashion store; AllSaints, a British fashion house; lululemon; Everything But Water, a designer swim and resort fashion store; The North Face; Uno de 50, a Spanish jewelry store; and Vineyard Vines, a clothing and gift store.

On the food front, three new eateries to make their debut include True Food Kitchen, which will include vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options on its menu; Tender Greens, which will serve dishes made of fresh produce from local farms; and Minamoto Kitchoan, a shop that will sell artisanal Japanese desserts.

A new plaza (part of the renovation of the shopping center's common areas), located at the west end of the shopping center between Neiman Marcus and Macy's, will be completed in November. The new outdoor space will feature gardens, a stretch of lawn where people can sit and a water feature with infinity edges.

Where are the plans for more parking? With the new Bloomingdales taking up former parking spots and all the new retail, wasn't new parking a requirement? Holiday shopping will be horrendous.
