CHICAGO-Water Tower Place has completed a reported $35 million renovation, and welcomed eight new stores to its lineup, right at the start of the holiday season. The eight new retailers have occupied nearly 116,000 square feet in the shopping center at 835 N. Michigan Ave. The 710,000-square-foot property is owned and management by General Growth Properties.

“Our strategy aimed to bring exciting and unique retail concepts from around the world to Chicago, and we are delighted to have achieved this goal with a stellar line up of openings this past summer and fall,” said Timothy Haislet, senior vice president, asset management for General Growth. “Our distinct retail mix and shopping experience continues to position us as a leading U.S. shopping destination.”

Foremost among the renovations was the new American Girl Place in a 52,000-square-foot space, followed by fashion retailer Forever 21, which opened a 35,739-square-foot store spanning floors five and six. Sports retailer adidas opened a 12,000-square-foot store on the building’s fourth floor, and women’s retailer CUSP moved into 6,048 square feet on floor two.
