of the new Natick Mall Expansion, showing the Nordstrom store in the
foreground. This is actually the Speen Street intersection at present,
Sears would be seen the left of the rendering if it was extended that
far. Note the parking in Parking Area D in front of the Nordstrom
store, along with the two apartment complexes in the background.

the same rendering as above, but in black and white and with somewhat a

the floorplans for the complex, with Neiman Marcus as the north anchor
and Nordstrom as the south anchor. Parking for the mall on Parking Deck
D looks very limited, so there must by considerably more spaces in
Parking Deck E, which is in essence the underground garage. On the
right side of the mall you can see the two apartment complex towers as
well as "Townhouses", not sure what that will be, perhaps two floors of
larger residences. Source: MWDN Paper (2/10/05)
Here is a
rendering of the building's facade, as seen from Speen Street. The
buildings in the front will be the main corridor of the expanded mall,
which will include around 80 retailers, 4 main restaurants, Neiman
Marcus (as seen on the right) and Nordstrom (seen in the center).
