Retail Gaming Experience Coming to Philadelphia's New Fashion District

by Steve Lubetkin,
Fashion District Philadelphia, a joint venture partnership between PREIT and Macerich, is expanding dining and entertainment concepts at the redeveloped shopping complex, with a dedicated third-floor entertainment zone that will include AMC Theatres and the newly signed Round One Entertainment.
“To execute our vision for creating an engaging shopping and social experience for Philadelphians, we’re delivering high quality retail, dining and entertainment tenants to enhance the suite of options for a day or night out in the downtown area,” says Joseph F. Coradino, CEO of PREIT. “Fashion District is well-positioned to cater to the evolving needs of consumers in a growing market and we continue to introduce desirable and first-to-Philadelphia brands—such as Round One Entertainment—to expand the Fashion District experience.”

Occupying more than 60,000 square feet, Round 1 provides a party and event space offering bowling, arcade games, billiards, karaoke and more, along with food and beverages.
PREIT says Fashion District will offer a variety of dynamic tenants and community programming across four key pillars – Style, Dining, Entertainment, and Arts & Culture.

Further strengthening Fashion District’s entertainment pillar, AMC will feature in-theater dining, reclining seats, and a bar—marking Center City’s first movie theater to open since 2002.

“Round One Entertainment is proud and excited to announce its third store in Pennsylvania, following the Exton and Erie locations. Fashion District Philadelphia will be the first location nationwide in which we’re opening a store in a non-regional mall, and we hope to continue our growth in similar retail environments across the country,” says Shane Kaji, executive vice president. “Round 1 will strive to make this store a great destination for entertainment and family gatherings when in downtown Philadelphia.”
Set to open in September 2019, Fashion District will offer an array of unique and dynamic concepts for shopping, dining, socializing and playing. Other previously announced dining and entertainment tenants include City Winery, a culinary and cultural wine experience offering fine dining, classes, concerts, and private events; Dallas BBQ and Market Eats as well as an array of quick serve dining options throughout the property.

Offering a variety of options for a diverse shopper base, Fashion District will feature in-demand brands including Nike, H&M, Forever 21, Columbia, Levi’s, ULTA Beauty, and Digitally Native Vertical Brands as part of Brand Box, local entrepreneurs as part of Uniquely Philly and others—joining Burlington and Century 21.
