Desire a Coach clutch or fashions from Barneys New York? Sawgrass Mills can have all that and more at its upscale outlet addition taking shape on the middle’s southern end.
The 110,000-square-foot open-air complex, called the Colonnade, has been within the works for several years. Barring unexpected events — like a rash of hurricanes — it’s going to open before the holiday shopping season is in full swing.
Outlet tenants onboard include Barneys and Coach together with Cole Haan, Escada Company Store, Salvatore Ferragamo, Hugo Boss Factory Store, Max Mara, Miss Sixty, St. John Knits and Crate & Barrel. It is going to be Crate & Barrel’s first Florida outlet store.
Shoppers will have the ability to walk directly into stores without entering the mall. A walkway with trees, plants and fountains will result in a trio of new restaurants: Bellagio, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, and Florida’s first Grand Lux CafM-i, a spin-off by The Cheesecake Factory chain. Coco’s Day Spa will probably be nearby for those worn to a frazzle from all the shopping.
Meanwhile, Neiman Marcus’ Last Call will move from the contained in the mall to a renovated freestanding building where Crate & Barrel will also be located.
With the brand new stores and European-themed architecture, the mall is broadening its appeal, said Erick Collazo, a Mills Corp. executive who’s overseen the project. And it’ll cater to the residential developments that have grown up around the center.
