Eastside offerings expand with new store openings
From Bellevue to Redmond, Kirkland and beyond, new retailers are springing up across the Eastside, providing residents and visitors alike with more options for shopping, dining, and entertainment. With new developments nearing completion and retailers snatching up existing commercial space at popular Eastside shopping hubs, the area is buzzing. Here are some of the stores you can expect to see open in the coming months:
With the 1.5-million-square-foot Lincoln Square expansion nearing completion, expect to see several new retailers filling the space between now and fall.
SoulCycle and Wild Ginger already have opened at the new development, but more restaurants and a few retail shops also are planned to debut in the months ahead. Among them, the anticipated Cinemark Reserve Lincoln Square movie theater will open this summer, providing guests with a luxury movie theater experience. In fall, Nordstrom Rack will open its 43,000-square-foot store. It will be the retailer’s eighth location in Western Washington.
In addition, visitors to Lincoln Square will have plenty of options when it comes to dining. James Beard Award-winning chef Jason Wilson will open The Lakehouse restaurant and speakeasy-inspired bar Civility & Unrest in June. Japonessa, Taylor Shellfish, and Henry’s Tavern, to name a few, also will open at the expansion this summer. Read More >>
