Riverside Square was in a prominent location that appealed to New York shoppers because of the lack of sales tax on apparel. Urban Retail’s strategy was to lease the mall to high end fashion tenants and provide a conducive environment for the mall’s typical shopper. With a racetrack common area layout, shoppers tended to wander and lose orientation. Cooper Carry chose to break down the mall into five galleries using the style of some of the most influential fashion designers. The designers are distinctly represented in each of the five galleries throughout the upscale center, with custom designed carpets, guardrails, floor medallions, and furniture.
