Business is booming in Las Vegas, and Fashion Show, the largest retail destination on the Las Vegas Strip, has announced plans for an extensive redevelopment and expansion of the mall’s exterior plaza along Las Vegas Boulevard, which will be completed by winter 2015.
The current open plaza design will transform into a walking pathway, framed by dining terraces, small free-standing shops and seating areas. The redevelopment will include a 22,000-square-foot addition, adding five additional restaurant spaces: three full service restaurants with outdoor dining terraces facing Las Vegas Boulevard and two bistro-sized venues with outdoor patios. Six unique free-standing retail “Cabanas” will be added, along with a new lush landscape re-design that will include shade trees and an exterior passenger elevator at the main parking level. Located above these new additions will be an iconic “Cloud Bar,” complete with an oval roof floating above curving glass walls.
As part of the redevelopment, Zara, one of the largest international fashion companies and one of Fashion Show’s first-to-market brands, will nearly TRIPLE in size, expanding its footprint to 30,000 square feet. Zara will span two levels and will double its existing women’s and men’s departments. The Fashion Show location also will add a 3,300-square-foot children’s department – a new addition for the Las Vegas flagship boutique.
