Chain Store Age (October 16, 2017) – People who still think of Fort Worth as the poor, cow-town stepchild of Dallas make a big mistake, according to the Simon Property Group executive who led the development of The Shops at Clearfork, the mall giant’s new center there. Built in partnership with Cassco Development, the 500,000-sq.-ft. retail center is anchored by Neiman Marcus and filled with a luxury lineup that includes Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Tory Burch, and ZGallerie.
“There are plenty of shopping centers in Fort Worth, but when residents were looking for luxury, they had to make the trek to Dallas,” Shields said. “This center was overdue in Fort Worth.”
Also on board at Clearfork, which opened last month, are new-age retailers such as Tesla Motors and Mizzen+Main and a stable of trendy eateries the likes of Cru Food and Wine Bar, Luna Grill, Malai Kitchen, and Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar.
