A Very Southport Corridor Christmas

It’s that time of year to dust off the ladders –  and hang the lights! A very Southport Corridor Christmas around the neighborhood this year. It’s great to see – especially after a long 20 months of the pandemic.

Confirmed: Sephora is coming to 3401 N. Southport Avenue

After months of speculation, Sephora will be coming to Southport\’s newest development at 3401 N. Southport Avenue, the former homes of Rise Sushi and Galleria Liquors. 

3401 N. Southport will be a 30 unit rental building with first floor commercial space and seven parking spaces for this site. The developers have taken advantage of the City’s new Transit Oriented Development Ordinance which incentivizes density near transit centers and allows for a reduction in the required parking spaces.

Sephora is a Paris–based French multinational chain of personal care and beauty stores founded in Limoges in 1969. Featuring nearly 300 brands, along with its own private label, Sephora offers beauty products including cosmetics, skincare, body, fragrance, nail color, beauty tools, and haircare.

Galleria Liquors will also be returning in the second retail space closer to the CTA entrance.

We have known since the beginning that Galleria Liquors was coming back, but Rise Sushi was not.  We have confirmed that Sephora is taking the other retail space, and that the lease is finalized. What do you think about Sephora joining the Southport Corridor?

You can read more about this development from Tom Tunney’s website.
