WOW walked across the street to the galleria today at lunch and that new 1st and 2nd level corridor to Saks is impressive...beautiful skylight ceiling and incredible light fixtures! I love how light and bright and open it feels! Galleria is the next GRB! haha!

regarding the old Saks location that is being re-done, what on earth is taking them so long in regards to the portion facing westheimer...i thought i read it was supposed to be done by spring? maybe it is summer?

had to re-read some of this thread but found this saying Spring 2017 so they better hurry...i am betting summer or fall...

I can remember when that Dillard's was a Joske's. If there were a way to connect to the Galleria, that would make a whole lot of sense.

 

As for how Zone D'Erotica got that corner, I would imagine it must be making all kinds of money; otherwise the landlord would have raised the rent to something prohibitive and tried to redevelop those pad sites.

 

just heard this today, although its a week or so old: http://www.chron.com/business/real-estate/looped-in/article/Listen-What-s-up-with-Uptown-s-Zone-D-Erotica-11103769.php#photo-12802668

the owner of zone d'erotica was actually the owner of the land and the manager of zone d'erotica etc....but now he is putting the property up for lease...!!! (apparently he will NEVER sell the land...interesting podcast to listen to within the link above...) and asking 400,000 a year rent means it may just stay as is...OY!

We've gotta have something weird there... particularly now that the signs on the West Loop feeder reminding us that Westheimer is also FM 1093 and that Fulshear is 21 miles thataway are gone.

was at the galleria and noticed that the entire west end of the ice rink length (along the railing/main food court end) is being turned into a pretty large new sushi place-  http://www.sushigami.net/ ... (opening date 06/30/17 according to the Simon Malls website) 

 

but even better there is a CoCo Crepes Express ( http://www.cococrepes.com/ ) kiosk right by it and that opens in the next couple of weeks!

:o

they have now removed the fence and have just a netted fence so you can see the progress...i think they are working on the parking lot this week to finish that out along with landscaping...at night the top and then the part framing the stores within as well as the pattern feature are lit up at night and its pretty impressive with how simplistic and nice it looks! cant wait for this to be finished...they are saying it will be around november/december for the restaurants in the front (empty) portion to be built out and open...we shall see!

sorry i haven't posted a photo yet but seriously i can never get the sizing right...someone needs to send me step by step directions haha!

 

anyway...looks like all or most of the stores in the new wing will be open June 30th (not the street facing restaurants of course as they are saying nov 2017 if not by spring 2018), but the ones in the 2 story hallway connecting galleria 2 with Saks!

Saks Wing Stores

There’s a whole wing full of new boutiques that are scheduled to open at the Galleria by the end of the month. Ted Baker, Lacoste, Sam Edelman, Adriano Goldschmied, Cuadra, Robin’s Jean and Trésor Rare are all set to bow in the state-of-the-art, redeveloped section of the mall on June 30.

as stated in this article:

Two months ago, I met two chefs from India while eating with my son at Shake Shack and they told me they were in town to take in the local dining scene in preparation for opening a fine dining Indian restaurant called The Spice Market (no relation to the Jean Georges Vongerichten restaurant in Meat Packing District tin NYC) that was opening near Nobu and Fig & Olive. I was surprised that Galleria marketing has not announced. If the deal wasn't signed- why would they fly the chefs over to tour Houston food scene??? They had been to the new Kiran etc... They said the company has other restaurants in India but I believe the ownership was from Nigeria.

walked to the galleria this morning and the first level of the renovated corridor leading to saks looks on target to open for business tomorrow as most stores facades have been uncovered and there are tons of people loading in and straightening/arranging items etc...the second level seems like maybe 1/3 of the stores if that will be ready to open tomorrow.

they also opened up the lower level corridor that leads to the westheimer facing entrance...lots of excitement going on in this part of the galleria! 

it all looks really nice and i am sure there will be lots of photos online soon enough!

it actually looks pretty strange from the outside, as it will probably/eventually be large windows, however for now, that is all boarded up since this is where presumably the 4 restaurants will be...so while the facade is nice, it will look even better once this is all uncovered! looking forward to this in the fall (hopefully)!
