NorthPark, which is located just across Central Expressway from the neighborhood, has several noteworthy stores opening this year.

Two new stores opened last month: Peloton, which “specializes in top-of-the-line spin bikes equipped with groundbreaking technology,” and Lou & Grey, which describes itself as “an exciting evolution of the LOFT lounge collection.”

Later this summer, Pandora is bringing its collection of bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings with handset gemstones to NorthPark.

Opening this fall is The Frye Company, which sells footwear, bags and accessories; Sundance, which sells men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, accessories, footwear, art, furniture and home décor; Tommy Bahamas, which sells relaxing apparel for men and women, footwear, jewelry, accessories and home décor; AG, which offers “luxury denim”; Vineyard Vines, best known for it’s “whimsical neckties”; and finally Polo Ralph Lauren, offering its “iconic American style” with clothing and accessories for men and women.

Aside from retail, an restaurant/bar concept called The Theodore (named after Teddy Roosevelt) is also planning to open in NorthPark this fall in place of Luna De Noche. Tim Byres, co-owner and chef of Smoke, is in charge of the menu, so expect a lot of meat. Also, baker David Norman is bringing a line of baked goods, including pretzels and sandwiches.
