Look out Nordstrom, the high end retailers are coming in full storm! According to a press release from Schnitzer West, shoemaker Jimmy Choo Inc. is the latest luxury retailer to land in Downtown Bellevue. The shoe retailer will open its first shoe boutique in the Northwest at The Bravern, a $500 million mixed-use project being developed by Bellevue-based Schnitzer West. The Bravern is a joint venture between Schnitzer and financial partner Investcorp Real Estate of New York.
Earlier this year, the Texas luxury department store chain Neiman Marcus announced its plans to open its first store in the Northwest at the Bravern.
The 2,100-square-foot boutique, which will face Northeast Eighth Street, will carry the company’s full line of shoes, handbags and accessories. The designer’s goods are sold in more than 60 locations worldwide.
The Bravern, which is under construction next to Meydenbauer Center just off Interstate 405 at Northeast Eighth Street, is set to open in 2009. Microsoft is leasing the entire 740,000-square-foot office portion of the 1.7-million-square-foot mixed use development that will combine offices, 300,000 square feet of shops and restaurants and condominiums.
