Despite the closures, the mall is looking forward to new tenants like Burger Study, a high-end burger joint created by St. Elmo’s Steakhouse, and Burn by Rocky Patel, an upscale lounge and bar opening this summer.

H&M, a clothing store for women and men, is set to finish its expansion in late summer and Palomino, a downtown fine dining staple, just welcomed its first guests into its new private dining area on Jan. 21.

These developments have followed others like the opening of Nada, Punch Bowl Social, and Primanti Bros.
