Mayor Nutter Lobbies for Retailers in Vegas

Mayor Nutter has spent the past few days in Las Vegas gambling and taking in all the Cirque de Soleil his heart desires at the International Council of Shopping Centers’ annual leasing conference. He was out there trying to convince retailers to come to Philadelphia—either as part of next year’s $90 million renovation to the Gallery or to work with PREIT on a future project. Mayor Nutter says that the key to revitalizing the area revolves around the modernization of the Gallery. [Wall Street Journal]
