NEW YORK — Counter-intuitive? Not so, according to the Americana Manhasset. Despite the soft economy, the shopping center’s current expansion is simply part of an ongoing strategy to pump up its luxury appeal.
The Long Island shopping center, a rarity on the suburban retail landscape with its high concentration of chic designer shops, urbane architecture and independent attitude, will extend its classic limestone facades and array of top European and American labels. Total space at the Americana Manhasset, after the project is completed this fall, will be 220,000 square feet.
