9 New Luxury Retailers Are Opening Outlet Stores In Sawgrass Mills' Expanded Colonnade Outlets
Sawgrass Mills shoppers will have nine new high-end outlet stores to choose from as the holidays roll around.
Marc Jacobs, Rag & Bone, CH Carolina Herrera, Helmut Lang, John Varvatos Outlet and Tod's are expected to open in The Colonnade Outlets section of the mall in November and December. The stores join already announced tenants Alexis Bittar, Ted Baker London and Vince.
They will all be their respective brands first outlet stores in South Florida.
“South Florida is a shopping mecca, and The Colonnade Outlets offers a mix of high-fashion designers and world-renowned brands found nowhere else,” Sawgrass Mills general manager Luanne Lenberg said in a press release.
The Colonnade Outlets, the luxury shopping area of Sawgrass Mills Mall, is currently undergoing an expansion that will add 80,000 square feet of retail space and two upscale restaurants. One of them, Matchbox, will be an American pizza bistro that's set to open in early 2016.
By the time the expansion is complete, The Colonnade will have gone from offering five restaurants and 50 stores to seven restaurants and more than 70 shops. In addition, The Colonnade will see an enlarged Tory Burch location and the division of Theory into separate men's and women's boutiques.
Sawgrass Mills will also offer a new 1,700-space parking garage adjacent to Neiman Marcus Last Call by next summer.
Other areas of Sawgrass Mills are growing. Come 2018, Sawgrass Mills will feature an open-air section for full-price retailers called Town Center. This addition to the Sunrise mall will include 25 stores, four restaurants and another new parking area for 2,000 cars.
