On Nov. 9, Thor Urbana will open Town Square Metepec, a lifestyle retail center with more than1.7 million buildable sq. ft. One of the fastest-growing regions in the State of Mexico, Metepec has drawn Old Navy, Flexzone, Pandora, Swarovski, MAC Cosmetics, Lacoste, and Under Armour to the center.
The Landmark Guadalajara, a mixed-use development comprised of more than 2 million sq. ft. of retail, office space, and luxury residences, is set to open on Nov. 22. It is located in the Puerta de Hierro district, a prestigious community in the state of Jalisco.
