It's finally here. A glitzy 1 million square feet of retail space opens at the Hudson Yards development in New York on Friday, promising to offer city dwellers and tourists alike a shopping experience unlike your traditional neighborhood mall.
The shops — built by two of the world's largest real estate developers, Related Cos. and Oxford Properties Group — are meant to appeal to shoppers on both the high and low end: ranging from apparel retailers Uniqlo, H&M, Zara and Athleta to luxury shops Dior, Fendi, Cartier and Tiffany. The property is anchored by Dallas-based department store chain Neiman Marcus. And it even has an area devoted to brands like men's athleisure company Rhone, tech hub b8ta, shoemaker M.Gemi and men's underwear retailer Mack Weldon, that were all born on the internet.
