Plans include a renovation of the luxury wing and Louis Vuitton major store Renovation.Macerich announced a phased project to further enhance the iconic Scottsdale Fashion Square. Plans include a renovation of the luxury wing followed by the addition of residences, class A office space and a new hotel to maximize the property's position at the heart of upscale Scottsdale.
The first phase of this multi-dimensional project will update and redefine the luxury wing anchored by Neiman Marcus. Scottsdale Fashion Square will further develop its luxury presentation with a striking new entrance and arrival point, two-story storefronts, and exterior-facing retail buildings and restaurants that will elevate and enhance the offerings for luxury retailers. Construction will begin in 2017 with opening planned for fall 2018.
The luxury renovation and added mixed-use elements will complement key investments in other aspects of the shopping center, including refinements and updates to the contemporary wing anchored by Nordstrom and the property's entertainment/young fashion wing anchored by the new Harkins Theatre. Plans also include the addition of new restaurant and food offerings at the 1.9 million square-foot Scottsdale Fashion Square.
Current development plans include a dramatic, high-visibility arrival point off Goldwater Boulevard, creating a grand entry into the luxury wing, which will be flanked by sweeping, two-level luxury flagships and an internationally acclaimed restaurant with spill-out café seating. Among the elevated amenities for visitors will be a dedicated luxury valet with a private lounge and house car, platinum-level concierge, personal shopping experts and style consultants, bespoke art installations and fine furnishings, resort-level restrooms, plus a signature fountain and lush gardens influenced by renowned landscapes from around the world.
Already, luxury leader Louis Vuitton has signed a new long-term lease at Scottsdale Fashion Square with plans for a major store renovation in 2017.
