A Fresh Look at 830 N. Michigan Avenue

Topshop Makes Magnificent Mile Debut

Making its much-anticipated grand opening yesterday was the newest addition to Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, Topshop/Topman. In attendance were pop star Miley Cyrus and various other female models making for quite a spectacle around Michigan Avenue and the Streeterville neighborhood. Also there was Topshop/Topman founder Sir Philip Green, signifying the magnitude of the flagship Chicago store located at 830 N. Michigan Avenue. To date, 830 N. Michigan Avenue is only the second Topshop/Topman retail store to open in the United States; however the British retailer does have future plans to expand into Las Vegas, California and additional stores in New York. The Chicago store is slightly bigger than the already existing New York location and boasts 30,000 square feet of retail space and occupies three levels. If you haven’t already visited a Topshop/Topman store, expect to find the latest British fashion trends and surprisingly reasonable prices throughout the store. So, at this point, you may be wondering why I am writing about retail space and a new British retailer taking over Michigan Avenue. Well, because it’s relevant to Streeterville and I walk by 830 N. Michigan Avenue virtually every day, I started to think about what a huge relief it is to see a bustling storefront occupy the massive space that once housed Borders. 

With the corner space of 830 N. Michigan Avenue being an absolutely prime retail location for nearly any large scale retailer, it was inevitable the space would eventually be filled. But in a struggling economy that is seemingly never going to get better, I still say seeing a fresh look on Michigan Avenue is always a welcoming sight these days--and the less time a building sits vacant in Chicago’s defining shopping district, the better it is for everyone living in Streeterville or visiting the great city we all love being a part of.
