Construction Update
Burberry Flagship Goes All Glassy on Michigan Avenue

Flagship Burberry Store

After a year of anticipation, we’re finally seeing the glass panels that will be the final skin on the new flagship Burberry Store at 633 North Michigan Avenue.

Most of the black glass pieces are in place, with the accent stripes soon to follow.  The vertical channel of showcase windows down the front of the building is also taking shape.  Are those shiny metal platforms a temporary or permanent fixture?  We’ll find out soon since the official opening date for the new Burberry store is November 2, 2012.

Oh, and if you’re waiting for the Niketown renovation down the street to finally finish, that’s going to reopen November 22nd, 2012.
