Block 37 Fights Back

sudler-sothebys-logo5 November 2009 ? An embattled development, located in the heart of the loop, recently announced multiple new retail tenants. Scheduled to open by Thanksgiving, the retail portion of Block 37 experienced some trouble as its proposed anchor tenants Movico and David Barton’s Gym pulled out of their agreements. However, Block 37 may be able to meet its planned opening for the holiday shopping season by signing a new group of smaller retail operations that include both local and national chains. These tenants include, among others, Sephora, Michelle Tan, L’Occitane, Comic Vault, and Alternative Shoes. The project’s developer is currently fighting legal action taken by Bank of America.
