Since their purchase in May, the new owners of Highland Park Village have gotten busy, planting mature trees and kicking off the historic movie theater's extensive renovation. Plus, they've got lots more in store.
Amidst a dismal downturn for retail, Highland Park Village owners Stephen and Elisa Summers and Ray and Heather Washburne say they're not feeling too big a pinch, with sales maintaining a steady $1K per square foot in its 200,000-square-foot retail complex.
Aggressive plans for enhancement include the signing of more contemporary fashion labels à la Tory Burch (who's a leading tenant) and a cosmetics store. Simply put, Stephen Summers say they're out to "fulfill everything a woman wants - and a man, too."
