Luxury Italian fashion brand Prada is expected to open at NorthPark Center in Dallas by the end of the year.

According to a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing, the company is working to complete a build-out at the 11,075-square-foot space. With an estimated construction cost of $1 million, the project includes a delivery date of November 15.

The iconic Prada logo went up at the storefront at NorthPark on March 24, The Dallas Express reported. The shopping mall already boasts several other luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Armani Exchange, St. John, and Versace. The new Prada store will occupy one of the biggest spaces in the south corridor, next to Neiman Marcus and Dillard’s.

Prada opened in the northern Italian capital of Milan in 1913. Today, it operates more than 20 locations in the U.S., including in Houston. The company previously operated a 6,377-square-foot store at Highland Park Village in Dallas that opened in 1997 but was later shuttered.

Meanwhile, several other stores are expected to open at NorthPark this year, including California brand TravisMathew.

Renovations of the 4,480-square-foot space are set to begin this month, according to state filing. With an anticipated price tag of $250,000, the project is expected to be completed by May at Suite 905.

TravisMathew markets to the Southern California culture with its men’s, women’s, and youth clothing, shoes, and accessories. Founded in 2007 in Huntington Beach, the company operates stores in Plano, Southlake, Austin, and The Woodlands. It has more than 40 locations throughout the U.S. and Japan.

Meanwhile, French luxury brand Givenchy is also scheduled to open a store at NorthPark Center in April. According to its website, this location will be Givenchy’s first in Texas. Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy founded his namesake company in 1952. After he met actress Audrey Hepburn, the two worked together to invent “a style that would redefine standards of elegance.”
