Saks Fifth Avenue at Brookfield Place aint happening “This summer”

Liberty entrance to Brookfield Saks Fifth AveJune 11, 2016- by Steven E. Greer

The “Opening summer of 2016” promise for the Saks Fifth Avenue is yet another lie from this real estate company. The construction has been stalled for months.

Given the dismal macro environment for retail, plus the lack of demand for a mall in Manhattan, Saks could have calculated that it is cheaper to let the project stall.

The best hope for Brookfield Place to survive had been the opening of this Saks anchor store. If this does not happen before the 2016 holiday season, look for more store closures.

    They’re saying September 9 for an opening – I guess it’s still *techincally* summer.

    Not sure why it takes so long to fit out a store though. The Empire State Building was done in a year.

    Brookfield and Westfield seem to have the slowest contractors. Probably the same people who took a half year to lay down artificial turf at West Thames Park.

    It’s a wonder how anything gets done in New York these days with contractors that take a whole week to install a door knob!
