POP-UP APPLICATIONS

 

Why SO:ME SPACE?

  • A highly creative, contemporary and dynamic retail environment, and immediately stands out from other retail offerings in the area.
  • Despite growth in the area, the SO:ME Space customer has limited options in shopping for desirable fashion and lifestyle products locally.
  • The destination is not exclusively limited to fashion but other lifestyle categories, creating wide appeal to the community that shops at the Market.
  • SO:ME Space is an opportunity for designers to test retail concepts and creative boundaries without the restrictive outlays of traditional rent.
