It seems like Plan B for the Gallery.
The Center City mall's owners have apparently been unable to land high-end department stores to anchor their reimagining of the aging shopping center on Market Street.
In an earnings call Wednesday, Joseph Coradino, chief executive officer for Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust (PREIT), said the company had ruled out "traditional fashion department store" anchors, one of two directions it was considering for the property.
Rather, PREIT seems focused on what in July Coradino called "fast fashion and food."
He said at the time, "That is to redevelop it more consistent with some of the more trendy suburban mall tenants - like the Forever 21, the H&M, the Uniqlo, as well as restaurants and other food choices."
