The Shops at Willow Bend: A Guide to What’s Opening in 2017

Where are The Shops at Willow Bend?

Northwest corner of Park Boulevard and Dallas North Tollway.

What’s there?

With more than 125 stores and restaurants, including major retailers such as Neiman Marcus, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Apple, Crate & Barrel and more, The Shops at Willow Bend have been giving customers a luxurious, yet traditional mall experience for the past 15 years. It was time to reimagine the retail center in order to catch up to what the market was demanding, according to Marketing Director Amy Medford. 

What’s coming?

The $125 million renovation project began last year and focuses on a few key areas. Up to eight, chef-driven restaurants will be added to an open-air pedestrian plaza, a new seven-story, 200,000-square-foot office tower will be constructed, and the interior will be remodeled. Plano Children’s Theatre plans to relocate to the center this summer in the new Willow Bend Center for the Arts. Renovations will span this year and early next, and will be minimally disruptive to customers.
