Construction on the property will begin immediately so that we can stay on track to host a Grand Opening before November 1st of this year. In addition to having construction complete by that time, we plan to have 75% of our retail stores leased and opening as well.

So that leads us to the biggest question of all -- the retail. Is an Apple store coming to this development? How about Yard House? Or maybe some of these other quality retailers? Or maybe we won't hear anything?
Joe Zekas, from the blog YoChicago, visited the complex recently and weighs in on the situation:
I visited Roosevelt Collection last Friday, and the plaza appears to be nearly on target for completion by the end of this month. There were no signs, however, of progress toward any retail openings. The Roosevelt Collection blog isn’t listing any on-site retailers, although the McCaffery site does have a brochure naming several tenants.
The November 1st date is looming and a curious bunch of Sloopin shoppers and residents are eager to hear where we might want to spend money.
At a minimum we would at least like to hear if any retailers are confirmed. We will see what happens...
Anyone have any thoughts or news on Roosevelt Collection?
