Two new tenants for Streets of St. Charles
Cullinan Properties keeps adding new attractions to its Streets of St. Charles development in St. Charles, Mo., which came in at No. 6 on Chain Store Age’s 2018 list of Top 10 Retail Center Experiences.
Play Street Museum itself was vote by USA Today as one of the Top 10 museums for parents to check out in Dallas. The franchised concept, aimed at kids eight and under, offers a variety of interactive toys and games such as construction blocks, life-sized farm animals and miniature cities.
“Because of our smaller size, children can be independent while their parents can relax knowing the kids are exploring and learning in a safe place,” said Kellie Geraghty, one of the owners of the St. Charles franchise.
Cherry Blow Dry Bar will open its first Missouri location at Streets of St. Charles in February, as well. Customers choose from the salon’s styling menu which includes nine different hairstyles that start at $35. It offers three types of memberships, starting at $59 for two monthly blowouts.
Some 20 Chery Blow Dry Bar locations can be found in states including Alabama, Florida, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Texas.
Howard Hughes Corp. to redevelop closed Alexandria mall
Howard Hughes Corp. (HHC) has apparently moved into the driver’s seat in the redevelopment of the shuttered Landmark Mall in Alexandria, Va.
HHC acquired the Macy’s at Landmark when the mall closed in 2017. The Sears at the property has continued to operate since then, and Hughes has apparently entered into a partnership to renovate the property along the Sears owner, Seritage Growth Properties, according to a report in the Washington Business Journal.
At a meeting of an advisory group meeting last week, HHC’ senior VP of development Mark Bulmash, said, “We now control the site. We made an agreement with the owner. Now we’re in to replan the site,” according to the newspaper.
The new plan for Landmark could include up to 5 million sq. ft. of mixed-use space. One talked-about tenant is Inova Health System with a 25-story medical office tower.
