Nordstrom occupies a staggering 210,000 square feet spread across three floors—60 percent more space than the Seattle-based chain occupies at the Fashion Mall at Keystone and likely more than any single retailer would be willing to lease.
Anchor store Carson Pirie Scott negotiated a new lease in January, giving the downtown mall added stability at a key time.
