Since 1976, Neiman Marcus has lured the country club-set (and dedicated, fashion-starved Fort Worth folks) to Ridgmar Mall in the far west part of the city. But that may be about to change. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, a real estate insider told a gathering of industry execs yesterday that the Dallas-based luxury retailer is looking to go east (just a bit) and join the under-development swath of Trinity River-adjacent land called Clearfork. Long rumored to be looking for a more, how do you say, appropriate retail landcape in which to be a part, Neiman's has "signed an agreement" to go into the development, but there are a number of terms to be met before it happens.
No rush—the $300 million development will feature more than 300,000 square feet of retail when it's completed, but the size and the configuration of the space is still being determined, according to the report. Interestingly, reps for Neiman's declined to comment on the still-not-100-percent-done deal.
