We predicted back in January that the two-level, 9,000-square-foot Burberry store on Michigan Avenue—which has been in business since 1981—might be completely demolished to make room for an ambitious, five-story flagship. Now the time has come: the British fashion house famous for its plaid and trenches will be temporarily moving in to the old Kenneth Cole space, located at 540 North Michigan Avenue, in order to begin demolition of the building. According to a salesperson, the entire store will be emptied out by the end of July. Now we can’t wait to see what the renderings of the new flagship is supposed to look like.
