Fashion District Philadelphia, a joint venture partnership between PREIT and Macerich, today announced that international fast fashion retailer Primark will anchor the west end of the project with a high-profile location at the corner of 11th and Market along with two other catalyst tenants also joining the rapidly expanding line-up of offerings. Alongside the addition of Primark will be cosmetic and beauty supply giant Sephora and designer apparel company Kate Spade New York Outlet.
Adored by fashion fans and value seekers alike, Primark is widely established as the destination store for keeping up with the latest looks without breaking the bank. Primark joins fellow fast-fashion tenants Forever 21 and H&M to round out an array of stylish and affordable apparel options at Fashion District Philadelphia. This is Primark’s only store in downtown Philadelphia, with two other stores operating in the region.
“Fashion District is quickly becoming a new retail and entertainment icon with unique and accessible tenancy delivering mass appeal and first-rate social experiences, having already welcomed over one million visitors since opening,” said Joseph F. Coradino, CEO of PREIT. “Primark is a global company that is just starting to make its mark in the United States and there is no better place than Philadelphia to test out some of the world’s latest fashion trends. The additions of Sephora and Kate Spade New York Outlet continue to bolster the District’s already in-demand and engaging line-up of offerings.”
Featuring nearly 300 brands along with its own private label, Sephora offers beauty products including cosmetics, skincare, body, fragrance, nail color, beauty tools and haircare. This will be Sephora’s second Center City location.
Since its launch in 1993 with a collection of six essential handbags, Kate Spade New York has always stood for optimistic femininity. Today, the brand is a global life and style house with handbags, ready-to-wear, jewelry, footwear, gifts, home décor and more. Polished ease, thoughtful details and a modern, sophisticated use of color—Kate Spade New York’s founding principles define a unique style synonymous with joy.
The District launched on September 19, 2019 – followed by a yearlong series of new additions later in 2019 and in 2020. Most recently, the District welcomed a new Forever 21 and will soon welcome RECPhilly and new-to-market tenants – AMC Theatres in November 2019 and Wonderspaces and Round One in December.
