Newest addition to Union Square

The long awaited opening of the new Prada flaship store in San Francisco's Union Square (201 Post near Grant Ave) finally happened this week. Nearly 10 years in the works, the San Francisco flagship store project has weathered tough times that kept the former Brooks Brothers site empty for years. The old location on Geary St is now closed to make way for the new 5,650 square foot luxury retail store. In the continual upscaling of San Francisco's downtown shopping, Prada joins the recent openings of Barneys New York and De Beers, while Gucci is also slated to make a move from Geary Street to Maiden Lane in November.
