In addition to Uptown Park's already impressive list of retailers — you can see a full list here — some exciting new openings are on the horizon.
Lombardi Cucina Italiana, a restaurant celebrating authentic Italian cuisine with a modern touch. The 9,350-square-foot restaurant, a concept by Lombardi Family Concepts, will feature a large selection of pastas, fresh fish, meats, and produce and an extensive international wine list and cocktail program.
Polestar, the Swedish electric performance car brand. The 3,420-square-foot ‘Polestar Space,’ a modern environment designed to explore the brand, is the second location in Texas and is a unique retail environment to get to know the cars through Polestar specialists and innovative technology.
Glosslab,a hygiene-first, membership-based nail studio modernizing the nail salon experience. This concept by New York City’s Rachel Apfel Glass will be the second Texas location and features technology-enhanced, waterless nail services with hospital-grade sterilization.
Lombardi Cucina Italiana, Polestar, and Glosslab join kindbody, a reproductive health clinic that makes fertility care more affordable and accessible for all, and Rocambolesc, an international ice cream shop by the Roca Brothers from Spain, that both opened earlier this year.
“The addition of these five concepts to Uptown Park continues to provide our guests with the most sought-after brands and experiences," says Michael Hale, senior vice president of leasing at Edens, Uptown Park's owner and operator. "Paired with our commitment to enriching our neighborhood, we are excited to continue introducing new shopping and dining experiences that enhance the surrounding community."
