One of Southern Nevada’s largest shopping centers — the Galleria at Sunset mall in Henderson — is set to undergo a $7 million renovation, its first since it opened in 1996.
Construction is scheduled to begin this month and is slated for completion in the fall.
The renovation will be mall-wide and will bring improvements to the food court, center court, guest services center and the restrooms.
“We’re very excited about the renovation, which will enhance the experience and comfort of our shoppers,” said Heather Valera, director of marketing for Galleria at Sunset. “In addition to these many additions, we’re also welcoming global fashion giant H&M, which is regularly requested by shoppers.”
The store will be two levels, approximately 20,000 square feet and located in the heart of the shopping center.
The project will also include renovated interior common areas with new soft seating, package carry assistance, free Wi-Fi, stroller rental, and the Sunset Express, a trackless train kids can ride.
Boutique Talulah will join H&M in the newly renovated mall. Bath & Body Works and Express stores will relocate to new locations inside the center and will open this fall.
The Galleria at Sunset opened in 1996 and is anchored by Macy’s, JCPenney, Dillard’s, Kohl’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Owned and operated by Forest City Enterprises, the 1,048,000-square-foot regional shopping center is the only enclosed mall in Henderson and one of the largest in Southern Nevada. In addition to retail, the Galleria at Sunset boasts two full-service and 11 fast food restaurants.
