Shop till you dropNorth-siders are set to get even more shopping and dining options in the coming months. Several new retailers have filed plans to open new stores in the Fashion Mall at Keystone and Castleton Square Mall. Among them:
  • White House Black Market plans to open a 2,800-square-foot store in the Fashion Mall. The Florida-based women's fashion outfit has a location in Clay Terrace.
  • Anthropologie, a South Carolina-based hip clothing store by Urban Outfitters, is taking roughly 10,000 square feet in the Fashion Mall for its first store in Indiana.
  • Moochie & Co., an Ohio-based pet gifts retailer, has plans for a 1,200-square-foot store, set to open Nov. 8 in Castleton Square.
  • Tumi, a New York-based purveyor of luggage and handbags, is taking 832 square feet in the Fashion Mall.
  • Johnny Rockets, a retro burger diner with a Circle Centre restaurant, plans to open in Castleton Square. The California-based chain also is planning a restaurant at Greenwood Park Mall.

    • More cute girls wearing Anthropologie clothing is welcomed by my eyes..
    • Anthropologie and Tumi are two great additions to the Indy market. Thanks Simon! How about Louis Vuitton next?
    • I also heard that Keystone is getting a Victor's Secret. Not sure it is my cup of tea, but I guess there is a market for men's lingerie.
    • Granted, I haven't been to the Fashion Mall in a while, but the last time I was there they were pretty full. So, what went out to make room for these stores?
    • Yay for Anthropologie and White House Black Market! It's about time for Indiana to get its own Anthropologie!
    • You made my wife's day Corey. She's been asking me every day for the last few months if that property blog knows when an Anthropologie will be opening.
    • Actually they're just remodeling Victoria's Secret and it is due to reopen soon......Victor's Secret is a sex toy shop...not exactly the kind of thing Simon would normally have in one of their malls!
    • I really wish they would have brought in a Neiman Marcus instead of a Nordstom at the Fashion Mall.
    • i agree Neiman Marcus sould have gone in instead of nordstroms
    • Does anyone know what is being built at Keystone at the Crossing right next to I465?
    • Yeah a Neiman Marcus should have been considered, rather than Nordstrom. Indy should have more varieties... expand its options for different shoppers. Then again, if a Neiman Marcus was impossible at the time, a Bloomingdale's would have been an even better store than just another Nordstrom as well. Whatever...
    • The building under construction is new office space, which will include local headquarters for Star Financial Bank.
    • if blomingdales was to come to indy it would have gone in where LS Ayres was at castleton or greenwood
    • Daniel, you would see George W Bush win the Nobel Prize for Physics before you would ever see a Bloomies in Greenwood. Castleton probably would be out of the question too just due to the existing tenant mix.
    • Bloomingdale's is owned by Federated Department Stores, which is based in Cincinnati. If Cincy can't convince its own hometown company to open a Bloomingdales store there, it seems unlikely that one would come to Indy, which is a smaller metro area.
    • i didnt realize Bloomingdale’s had so few locations till i looked at there map
    • cschouten, do you know how tall the new office building will be? wasn't there supposed to be a 14 story building built at the same site?
    • Yes I agree, Neiman Marcus would certainly have been nice. I'd prefer that to another Nordstrom. Maybe N-M can go in the new development across Keystone, south of 86th St. Neiman-Marcus and a Ritz-Carlton hotel would be great there. Wishful thinking?? Maybe not.
    • Again, who is going to shop at Neiman-Marcus in Indy? There does not seem to be any type of a culture of high end consumption in Indianapolis. I'm not saying that's a bad thing by any means, but it bodes ill for a store like Neimans. Even the Saks store carries a lower end of merchandise that Saks stores elsewhere.

      The best suit brand Saks is carrying last I checked was Canali, which I is a nice, fully canvased suit that retails around $1800. At Neimans, that's the entry level. How many people in Indy are going to upgrade to $3400 for Oxxford or $5000 for Kiton? For that matter, how many people have heard of Kiton in Indy? Or John Lobb Paris shoes (upwards of $1000), or Borelli or Fray shirts (at $500 a piece)? I just don't see it happening.

    2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
