The Galleria announces new store openings, relocations!

The $30 million renovation of the Galleria’s luxury wing is one of several developments happening at the shopping hub.

The wing will house the retail district’s flagship Saks Fifth Avenue store, scheduled to open April 28. The full wing renovation will be complete in 2017.

Temporary locations have been established for other stores as retailers upgrade their existing spaces. There also will be two new, first-in-Houston luxury offerings later this year, according to Simon, the global retail real estate management company that operates the Galleria.


Two more luxury brands will appear this year. Women’s footwear retailer Christian Louboutin will open its first Houston store at the mall and French leather goods retailer Céline will open its first Texas boutique at the Galleria.

Yauatcha, a dim sum teahouse, will open this year in the “Jewel Box,” the freestanding structure recently completed along Westheimer Road that houses high-end retailer The Webster.
