The Plaza and the Court at King of Prussia Mall will be connect this week.The final steel beam for the shell of a massive new corridor housing dozens of new stores and restaurants and connecting the Plaza and the Court at King of Prussia Mall will be build this week.
Retail extension of 170,000-square-foot is part of an bigger expansion process, which began a year ago to add 50 retail stores, including about two dozen luxury brands, more restaurants, and a dining pavilion. The two-year project is set for completion in the fall of 2016.
The new corridor is the mall's eighth major expansion and renovation, and the most significant since 2012, when the former Wanamaker's building in the Plaza was demolished and converted into two stories of shopping space covering 100,000 square feet. That space is occupied by the largest Forever 21 store in Pennsylvania, and large H&M and Steve Madden stores.
Among upscale shops that will rent space in the new shopping corridor are CH Carolina Herrera; Clarins; Robert Graham; Vince; and Stuart Weitzman. Additional tenants will be announced soon.
In addition, five of the mall's luxury stores - the names that are yet to be announced - will take advantage of the new space by moving and expanding into flagship stores.
Finally, King of Prussia Mall anchor department stores Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, and Macy's are adding new entrances to integrate into the additional retail space and will be attached to the new parking lot.
