Gucci will open a Design District flagship in 2017 that is at least 7,000 square feet over two levels, according to WWD.

Robins also said that:

  • Some stores in the district are struggling
  • 30% of the Design District is now “filled”
  • Current Design District phase is just under 1 million square feet
  • Total Design District development rights are 1.5 million to two million square feet
  • “As interesting ideas surface, we’ll consider them” for remainder of development, which won’t all be retail
