“We are so excited. We can’t wait for it,” says Erroll June, the General Manager of Poppy’s Time Out.
June is ready for new business to move in next door. Poppy’s Time Out is on the Riverfront right next to the now vacant and under construction Riverwalk. While he says business is holding up, he can’t wait for shoppers to come back.
“Oh it’s a big difference. It’s a big difference,” says June.
What used to be the Riverwalk Marketplace is now undergoing a $70,000,000 renovation. Next year you can expect a 25,000 square foot upscale outlet mall with about 75 shops. Shops include the first ever Neiman Marcus in the state, Coach, Sunglass Hut, and Kenneth Cole.
It’ll be called The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk.
“We have gutted the entire interior of the shopping center. It will be a clean, light, airy, modern shopping venue,” explains Developer and Senior Vice President at Howard Hughes Mark Bulmash.
“Between the Riverwalk, H&M on North Peters, Tiffany & Company at One Canal Place and the SaEnger opening just a could weeks ago, we’re on a roll,” says Downtown Development District Director of Finance & Administration Anthony Carter.
City leaders are excited and so are developers who have already leased 94% of the retail space.
The news makes Errol June optimistic as he waits for opening day which we are told should happen late Spring or early Summer.
“Hopefully no later than June,” exclaims June.
